Provided is a locking plate system for treatment of a distal radius fracture, intended to improve cooperation between screw anchors made of metal and a plate made of resin as well as to enhance matching with respect to the radius. The radius locking plate (4) is a flat laminate of intermediate molding materials that each include carbon fibers as reinforcing material and thermoplastic resin as a matrix. The screw anchor (5) includes a shaft portion (10) which has a principal thread (13) achieving a self-tapping action formed thereon and an outer circumference of a head portion of the screw anchor (5) which has an auxiliary thread (13) achieving a self-tapping action tapped thereon. A diameter of a through-hole (6) in the radius locking plate (4), which allows the radius main body (3) and the fractured bone piece (2) to be threadably fixed to the radius locking plate (4), is oversized relative to the principal thread (11), and is undersized relative to the auxiliary thread (13).

Provided is a microparticle separation chip capable of continuously separating microparticles from a solution in a short period of time in which microparticles having different particle diameters are mixed, without the need to use antibodies or the like. Also provided are a microparticle separation system and method for microparticle separation using the chip. The microparticle separation chip comprises a substrate and at least three or more pillars, a single capture site for capturing to-be-captured microparticles being formed using the at least three or more pillars having one end provided on the substrate and the other end open above, the spacing Z between any mutually adjacent pillars that form the single capture site being Y < Z X, where X is the size of the to-be-captured microparticles, and Y is the size of the microparticles to be removed, and the at least three or more pillars that form a single capture site being arranged in a positional relationship in which to-be-captured microparticles captured in the capture site do not flow out from between any adjacent pillars.

[Object] To provide a radical generator which can produce radicals at higher density. [Means for Solution] The radical generator includes a supply tube 10 made of SUS, a hollow cylindrical plasma-generating tube 11 which is connected to the supply tube 10 and which is made of pyrolytic boron nitride (PBN). A first cylindrical CCP electrode 13 and a second cylindrical CCP electrode 30 are disposed outside the plasma-generating tube 11. A coil 12 is provided so as to wind about the outer circumference of the plasma-generating tube 11 at the downstream end of the first CCP electrode 13. A thin connecting tube 23 extending from the bottom of the plasma-generating tube 11 is inserted into the supply tube 10.

Provided is an embedding medium for specimen preparation that, when preparing a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen, involves no thermal invasion of the tissue, minimizes wrinkling and tearing during thin slicing, and makes it possible to confirm the position of the tissue in the embedding medium, and also for preparing a curable base material penetrating specimen on the same plane as a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen. The problem can be solved by using an embedding medium for specimen preparation that includes gelatin that is in a liquid state at 15C-25C and assumes a solid state at 4C when made into an aqueous solution.
