    Abstract: A method for enabling D2T2 printing onto non-D2T2 printable substrates uses a diffusible primer material provided on a dye-sheet or ribbon. The primer comprises a polymer, a release agent and a plasticizer. The release agent and the plasticizer are diffused into the substrate, while the polymer remains on the dye-sheet or ribbon. Printing of the primer onto the PC substrate is controlled via a computer image program corresponding to a colored image. This computer image program also controls the printing of the colored image at the primed locations. Accordingly, image-wise treatment of a plastic material via the primer selectively renders the PC substrate surface D2T2 printable at the point of personalization, providing for a 100% PC full card body having the colored image.

  • Patent number: 8481125
    Abstract: Molecular adsorption to the microfluidic device surfaces can be passively and actively mitigated by mixing certain hydrophilic polymers (organic polymers with repeating hydrophilic groups—the preferred polymers being amphipathic surfactants—with the sample liquid during or prior to relevant microfluidic operations. Nonionic surfactants such as polyoxyethylene sorbitan monooleate and polyoxyethylene octyl phenyl ether are especially effective. High molecular weight polyethylene polymers are also effective. The hydrophilic polymers appear to prevent binding of the fouling molecules to the microfluidic by occupying the surface sites in place of the fouling molecules or by interacting with the fouling molecules to prevent binding of the fouling molecules the surface. When surface adsorption is thus mitigated, microfluidic devices can readily handle samples containing biomolecules to enable active sample concentration, filtering, washing, transport, mixing and other sample handling operations.

  • Publication number: 20120171503
    Abstract: A solid support for maintaining a uniform spot shape while improving the capacity for immobilization of nucleic acids upon spotting of nucleic acids onto a solid support is provided. A substrate has a base material, an electrostatic layer formed on the base material in order to electrostatically attract nucleic acids, and carboxyl groups formed on the electrostatic layer, wherein the ratio, (COO peak intensity)/(C—C peak intensity) in the C1s spectra obtained by X-ray photoelectron spectrometry (XPS) performed for the surface of the substrate ranges from 0.10 to 0.20. The solid support for immobilizing nucleic acids is produced by active esterification of carboxyl groups of the substrate.

  • Patent number: 8211456
    Abstract: The present invention relates to “grafting to” methods of modifying materials surfaces with high-density polymer brushes. A method of the present invention comprises contacting in succession or simultaneously an activated material surface, a solution of a polymeric material having a polymeric backbone with pendant reactive moieties, and a melt of brush-forming terminally-functionalized polymer chains, in order to allow a covalent bonding reaction to occur between surface and polymers, wherein upon completion of the reaction, the polymeric material forms a layer between the material surface and the brush polymer chains.

  • Publication number: 20120064293
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a coated aluminium strip, in which the aluminium strip is unwound from a coil and fed into a unilateral or bilateral extrusion coating arrangement, the aluminium strip is extrusion coated with a thermoplastic polymer and after being extrusion coated, the aluminium strip is reheated to a metal temperature above the melting point of the thermoplastic polymer. The object of providing a method for producing an aluminium strip by which an extrusion-coated aluminium strip can be produced which can be processed at high processing speeds in follow-on composite tools is achieved in that the unilateral or bilateral plastics material coating of the aluminium strip is textured, after being reheated, using rolls which have a superficial structure.
