  • Patent number: 11059000
    Abstract: [Problem] A preparation of forming bubbles of carbon dioxide gas which is put into a micro-bubble generator is realized, unlike a conventional tablet, as a tablet which can retain an ability to neutralize and remove completely chlorine contained in tap water from start of dissolution of the tablet inside the micro-bubble generator to the completion of dissolution thereof, thereby providing a method for producing micro-bubbles of carbon dioxide gas by using the tablet and a device thereof. [Solution] There is provided a method for producing carbon dioxide gas/micro-bubbles mixed water in which a carbonated bathing agent is a tablet which is 7 mm or more both in tablet diameter and tablet thickness, 15 kg or more in tablet hardness, 10 wt % or less in tablet friability and from 5.5 to 9.

  • Patent number: 10995271
    Abstract: The bioorganic soil conditioner includes biochar derived from plant waste and a mix of chemicals including sulfonated naphthalene formaldehyde, urea-formaldehyde and polyvinyl alcohol. The bioorganic soil conditioner is made by infusing biochar from lignin-rich plant waste with the mix of chemicals. The bioorganic soil conditioner improves soil aggregation and moisture and nutrient retention capacity. Thus, the bioorganic soil conditioner may be added to soil to improve crop production and stabilize soil, for example, in conditions of high wind or desertification.

  • Patent number: 10520462
    Abstract: An electrochemical screening method for the selection of DNA aptamers against 11-deoxycortisol (11-DCL) using gold electrode for target immobilization is described. The gold electrode is used as solid matrix instead of the beads for SELEX. The selection steps (SELEX) are performed on the 11-DC modified electrode directly as the DNA library in the first round or the enriched DNA pools in the subsequent rounds were incubated on the electrode, then the unbound DNA is washed and the bound DNA is measured directly by square wave voltammetry. Then elution of the bound DNA is performed for further use.

  • Patent number: 8969250
    Abstract: A process for treating foliage by retaining an active agent in contact with the foliage is provided that includes the application of a biologically active ingredient carrier granule. The granule includes a mineral component, a cellulosic component, and a binder flowing upon wetting intermixed with the mineral component and the cellulosic components. A biologically active ingredient is added to the granule to treat the foliage. The foliage in either a dry or pre-wetted state. The contact of the granule with water causes the granule to flow to form a coherent film bound by the binder on the foliage with the active agent retained in the film in contact with the foliage.
