  • Patent number: 11702275
    Abstract: This invention relates to a unique food preservation system that is used to extend the shelf life of food items by automatically modulating the gas composition within an air-tight container to the optimal atmospheric conditions for the specific food item(s) being stored in these containers. In order to extend the shelf life of food items, the optimal levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen must be maintained within the food storage container at all times. This is accomplished by constant real-time monitoring of the atmosphere within the food storage container and actively as well as passively controlling the atmosphere.

    Abstract: A chelating system for inclusion in a composition at least stored in a polymer lined metal passivated steel container which provides for stability of both the composition and the container. The composition preferably is a cleaning composition including a color-changing dye or indicator. The chelating system provides for stable storage of the composition through preventing degradation of the dye/indicator over an extended storage time. The chelating system included in the composition has a low affinity for the passivation metal on the steel container which provides for stability of the polymer liner present over the passivation layer and, thus, provides for the stability of the container. A preferred combination is a cleaning composition including (a) tetrasodium iminodisuccinate as the chelant and (b) a pH sensitive color-changing dye/indicator, in combination with a PET-lined chromium passivated tin-free steel container.

  • Publication number: 20140353201
    Abstract: The present invention is an elastic (mechanically stretchable), sanitizing pouch configured to receive and hold an Electronic Device of a predetermined configuration. The elasticity of the fabric used maximizes surface contact with the Electronic Device and the closeness of the fabric of the invention with the outside surfaces of the Electronic Device. A liftable and removable cover flap on the front of the invention is used to hold and access the inside of the invention. The back of the invention includes at least one pocket. The invention further includes a pull tab to help lift an Electronic Device out of the invention. While inside the invention, the silver ions are released in the fabric and inhibit the colonization of bacteria, viruses and fungus on the Electronic Device.

  • Publication number: 20140339125
    Abstract: The present invention is based, at least in part, on the identification of a pharmaceutical container formed, at least in part, of a glass composition which exhibits a reduced propensity to delaminate, i.e., a reduced propensity to shed glass particulates. As a result, the presently claimed containers are particularly suited for storage of pharmaceutical compositions and, specifically, a pharmaceutical solution comprising a pharmaceutically active ingredient, for example, daclizumab (ZENAPAX®).

  • Publication number: 20140342041
    Abstract: A combination micro-filtration halogen apparatus safely delivers drinking water by metering doses of concentrated aqueous iodine into a filtered water supply contained within a chamber. Untreated water is poured into the water filter column that allows for gravity to force the water through filters and the filtered or purified water depending on the filters is stored within a lower chamber of the column for disinfection. An aqueous iodine roller metering system controls the amount of iodine dispensed from an aqueous iodine container to the filter column. Turning the roller mechanism accurately meters a selected dose of concentrated aqueous iodine from the iodine container into the lower chamber of the water column. The active residual iodine disinfectant kills microbes in the filtered or purified water making it safe to consume and prevents recontamination. The iodinated drinking water also provides for essential daily human micronutrient requirements.
