  • Publication number: 20210127664
    Abstract: A device for transporting objects such as a graft is configured to efficiently establish a liquid-tight state with a simple operation. The device is to be used in a state of being detachably attached to a container for storing a graft, the device including: a lid member for sealing the container; and an annular member for forming a first space by being interposed between the lid member and the container, wherein a second space is formed between the lid member and an inside surface of the container.

  • Publication number: 20200148747
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a cell sheet embedding agent, which makes it possible to stably transport a cell sheet at the time of transport at a low temperature and to collect the cell sheet from the cell sheet embedding agent in a simple manner after being transported, a cell sheet-containing composition, and a kit. According to the present invention, there is provided a cell sheet embedding agent containing a polypeptide represented by the following Formula 1, in which in a case where a molecular weight distribution of the polypeptide is measured, a peak area of a maximum molecular weight is equal to or greater than 80% of the total peak area of all molecular weights. A-[(Gly-X—Y)n]m—B??Formula 1: In the formula, X and Y each independently represent an amino acid, m is an integer of 2 to 10, n is an integer of 3 to 100, and A and B each represent any amino acid or any amino acid sequence.

  • Patent number: 9646778
    Abstract: An operating device for a disconnector includes a drive unit, a Geneva mechanism, and a wire. The drive unit includes a forwardly and reversely rotatable motor serving as a drive source for driving a movable contactor of the disconnector, a power source supplying power to the motor, and a first pulley connected to a rotary shaft of the motor, and is disposed apart from the disconnector. The Geneva mechanism includes a second pulley that rotates in the same direction as the first pulley with the rotation of the first pulley, and a driven wheel that is intermittently driven while the second pulley rotates and that is provided with a rotary shaft connected to the movable contactor, and is attached to the disconnector apart from the drive unit. Further, as a flexible rotational force transmission member, a wire is stretched between the second pulley and the first pulley.
