The present invention discloses use of butylidenephthalide (Bdph), a method of using the same, and a method for preparing a pharmaceutical composition containing the same. Because Bdph has the capability of promoting the hair growth and reducing the -amyloid protein (A) level in nerve cells, the efficacy of improving the health and appearance of a subject can be achieved by administrating an effective amount of Bdph to the subject. Specifically, the Bdph has the efficacy of preventing or treating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers disease caused by excessive build up of A in the cells, and as an active ingredient in a topical composition, the Bdph is effective in promoting the hair growth at the site where the Bdph is administered. Furthermore, the method for preparing a pharmaceutical composition containing Bdph comprises preparing the pharmaceutical composition through an organic synthesis reaction, wherein the Bdph is coated with a polymeric material such as F127 by covalent bonding of the polymeric material with the Bdph, thereby achieving the effect of reducing the cytotoxicity of the pharmaceutical composition for an organism.

An ion focusing member includes a ball having a surface with a plurality of dimples. The ion focusing member is adapted for being disposed in a mass spectrometer in a way that the ball is located at a spray path of analyte ions and located between a metal capillary and a mass analyzer. When the analyte ions pass through the ball, the analyte ions can be gathered at a downstream position of the ball, which in turn flow into the mass analyzer by a potential difference. Therefore, the ion focusing member of the present disclosure can effectively enhance the amount of the analyte ions entering into the mass analyzer, thereby improving ion transmission efficiency. As a result, a mass spectrometer equipped with the ion focusing member may have increased signal intensity of analyte, lowered limit of detection (LOD), and minimized detection error.

A focusing ionization device includes a ball having a surface with a plurality of dimples and a metal needle located at one side of the ball and capable of generating corona discharge. The focusing ionization device is adapted for being disposed in a mass spectrometer in a way that the ball is located at a spray path of gaseous analytes and the metal needle is located adjacent to a sample inlet of a mass analyzer. When the gaseous analytes pass through the ball, the gaseous analytes can be gathered around the metal needle, which in turn are ionized to produce analyte ions to be transmitted into the mass analyzer by a potential difference. Therefore, the focusing ionization device of the present disclosure can effectively enhance the amount of the analyte ions entering into the mass analyzer, thereby improving ion transmission efficiency. As a result, a mass spectrometer equipped with the focusing ionization device may have increased signal intensity of analyte, lowered limit of detection (LOD), and minimized detection error.

An explicit real-time fire disaster alarming device includes a fire disaster detector, human body detector, controller and outdoor light displaying portion. If the fire disaster detector detects any fire inside a space or room, it will send out a fire signal. The human body detector detects whether there is any human inside the space and send out a YES signal or a NO signal accordingly. When the controller receives the fire signal, the outdoor light displaying portion changes from a storing form to an extending form. When the controller receives the YES signal, the outdoor light displaying portion turns on a light for showing there is a human inside the space. When it receives the NO signal, the outdoor light displaying portion turns on another light for showing there is no human inside. Hence, fire fighters and rescuers are provided with a priority reference for life rescue.
