  • Publication number: 20190223648
    Abstract: A beverage-brewing packaging bag includes an outer bag (10) and an inner bag (20). The outer bag (10) includes a receiving space (101). The inner bag (20) is received in the outer bag (10) and receives a to-be-brewed substance (30). The inner bag (20) is a filtering bag, is fixed to an inner face of the outer bag (10), and divides the receiving space (101) of the outer bag (10) into a water chamber (104) and a reservoir (105).

  • Publication number: 20190225416
    Abstract: An easy-to-carry bagged coffee includes coffee powder (200) and a packaging bag (100) receiving the coffee powder (200). The packaging bag (100) includes an outer bag (10) and an inner bag (20) received in the outer bag (10). The inner bag (20) is fixed in the outer bag (10) by hot pressing, receives the coffee powder (200), and is a filtering bag.

  • Patent number: 8084418
    Abstract: The subject invention relates to the surprising discovery that toxin complex (TC) proteins, obtainable from Xenorhabdus, Photorhabdus, and Paenibacillus, can be used interchangeably with each other. In particularly preferred embodiments of the subject invention, the toxicity of a “stand-alone” TC protein (from Photorhabdus, Xenorhabdus, or Paenibacillus, for example) is enhanced by one or more TC protein “potentiators” derived from a source organism of a different genus from which the toxin was derived. As one skilled in the art will recognize with the benefit of this disclosure, this has broad implications and expands the range of utility that individual types of TC proteins will now be recognized to have. Among the most important advantages is that one skilled in the art will now be able to use a single set of potentiators to enhance the activity of a stand-alone Xenorhabdus protein toxin as well as a stand-alone Photorhabdus protein toxin.
