  • Patent number: 7094305
    Abstract: A method of producing batches of micro particles includes affixing a substrate sheet to a support and cutting the substrate sheet with a laser device to define a plurality of micro particles. Before, after or during the cutting of the substrate sheet, the region of the substrate sheet defining each micro particle is marked with a code or other identifying marking using a laser device. The code or other identifying marking is unique to the particular batch of micro particles to uniquely identify that batch. The micro particles are removed from the support by a solvent. Preferably, a single laser device is used for cutting the substrate sheet and marking the micro particles. Alternatively, separate laser devices may be used for cutting the substrate sheet and marking the micro particles.

  • Patent number: 5928758
    Abstract: A card blank for identification cards and the like that include a microfilm with predetermined information to be read by a common utensil such as a magnifying glass or a microscope. The card includes two sheets that joined together at predetermined areas and include each a window with similar dimensions and in alignment. The microfilm is positioned between the two sheets exposing most of its area with information. The edges of the microfilm are sandwiched by the two sheets defining a peripheral wall around the windows. One of the embodiments contemplates the use of a slot in one of the sheets with a peripheral pocket surrounding the windows. This allows the ready insertion of the microfilm. Another embodiment includes a flexible second sheet that folds back permitting a user to bring one straight edge of the microfilm in abutting contact with an interface line thereby readily positioning the microfilm so that a substantial portion of its information is exposed.

  • Patent number: 5215334
    Abstract: An emergency medical card includes a first location for displaying a reduced-sized medical data transparency with a detachable lens element for separation from the card to view the medical data contained on the transparency. In a first embodiment, the hinge member secures the periphery of a first card with the periphery of a reduced-size lens card, with the hinge permitting the lens card to be bent back adjacent to the first card so that its profile remains that of a typical credit card. In a second embodiment, the lens is secured by a perforation within the profile of the same card.

  • Patent number: 5197763
    Abstract: An emergency medical data card for private individualized and convenient creation and the process of making thereof that can also be provided in a kit form so that individuals can create their own emergency medical data card. The emergency medical data card is created by initially providing a blank form that includes indicia having individualized, personalized information, such as name, address, and a series of medical indicia information that includes lines from each word so that an individual can fill in the particular information required, along with particular boxes that can be checked. The letter size form is then reduced a predetermined amount so that its size ultimatey is slightly smaller than a credit card which conveniently fits in a wallet. The sheet, once reduced, is then attached to a blank rigid plastic card that does say "Emergency Medical Data" on it permanently, all of which can be laminated together.

  • Patent number: 4763928
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for theft identification of articles, such as, machines and equipment employs one or more miniature, coded portions or disks, each disk in the form of a thin film bearing preassigned data which is photo optically reduced on the film so as not to be readable with the naked eye, and at least partially severed from the film so as to facilitate application to an article. The disks may be placed on or buried in the articles at different locations known only to the owners as well as being placed at other random locations and are composed of a material not discernible by remote locating means thereby making it virtually impossible for unauthorized persons to locate and remove the disks from the equipment.
