Time filter

Source Type

A system is provided comprising an optical filter. The optical filter comprises a Cuporphyrin dye compound. The transmission spectrum of the system has an average transmission across the wavelength range of 460nm-700 nm of at least 80%. The transmission spectrum of the system has an average transmission across the wavelength range 400nm-460nm that is less than 75%.

A biodegradable, thermally insulated mailer and cooler, and method of making them, are disclosed. The thermally insulated packaging material are made from laminated starch foam and bio-plastic film. The lamination can be performed by heat bonding, without the use of an adhesive bonding agent, to produce biodegradable packaging materials that can pass ASTM and other certifications for home compostability and marine environment safety.

Various forms of a cable fixation device, instrumentation, kit, and methods useful for repairing the skeletal system are introduced. The system utilizes a clamp housing fixing a butt end of a surgical cable therein. In an operative configuration the cable is looped around a damaged bone segment and reentered through a lock aperture in the clamp housing then through a collet and lock cap residing within the lock aperture. The cable loop and each aforementioned component comprise a central axis aligned within a single plane. A sliding interface situated between the lock cap and collet prevent twisting of the surgical cable. The locking mechanism is non-destructive to the cable despite repeated unlocking and relocking of the fixation device. The axis for tensioning of the cable is coincident with the locking axis. A counter torque instrument has a torsional input shaft generally perpendicular to the elongated axis of the instrument.

Instruments, kits, and methods are disclosed for installing an implant spacer through an incision and down a surgical corridor. The instruments also serve to align a drill guide and align and insert a spacer stabilizer for stabilization of adjacent bone portions. The instrument comprises an elongated guide bar body, an inserter face at a distal end of said guide bar body for abutting an instrument attachment portion of a spacer, a connection tip portion for securing a spacer against an inserter face, and a guide portion of said elongated guide bar body for aligning instruments with said spacer and for introducing a stabilizer to secure the spacer in a predetermined position between the bone portions. Included is a retractable graft block for securing graft material within an aperture of said spacer during insertion of the spacer.

A method of controllably directing an elongate device into a vessel network including the steps of: obtaining a tubular component with a tubular wall bounding a passageway and having an aperture between spaced ends; directing an introducing member into the vessel network towards a target site; placing the introducing member and tubular component in an operative relationship wherein at least a portion of the introducing member resides within the passageway; relatively repositioning the introducing member and tubular component by guided movement, one against the other, to place the aperture at an introduction location; and directing the device through the passageway to and through the aperture to the target site.

A method of controlling intravascular sheaths including the steps of: a) obtaining a guide assembly having a body with a tubular wall bounding a passageway, the body having a length between axially spaced ends and an outer surface that tapers towards each of the spaced ends, the body flexible at each of the spaced ends to allow the spaced ends to bend transversely to the length of the body; b) directing the guide assembly into an operative state within a human body vessel; c) obtaining a first sheath having a tubular body extending around a passageway; and d) relatively moving the guide assembly body and first sheath to thereby direct the guide assembly body into the passageway on the first sheath and thereafter guidingly sliding the first sheath lengthwise against the outer surface of the guide assembly body to: a) advance the first sheath into the human body vessel; or b) withdraw the first sheath.

Means are provided of increasing the growth potential and abiotic stress resistance in plants, characterized by expression of polynucleotides stably integrated into a plant genome or stably incorporated in the plant. Further provided are isolated nucleic acids and their stable inclusion in transgenic plants. The transgenic plants have shown desirable phenotypic characteristics when compared to control plants, for example, improved drought-resistance. Also taught are plants having increased growth potential due to improved abiotic stress resistance.
