Method for calibrating clinical chemistry instruments


A method of deriving correction for instrument-to-instrument variations in the illumination band centroid wavelengths and wavelength band shapes of the optical systems of clinical chemistry instruments includes the steps of determining the centroid wavelength and wavelength band shape of a light source used in the optical system of a clinical chemistry instrument to provide a determined wavelength band shape and centroid wavelength, comparing the determined wavelength band shape and centroid wavelength with a known reflection density or absorbance wavelength spectrum of a specific type of chemical reagent test to provide a correction value, and calculating the correction value, which is to be used to modify a reflection density or absorbance measurement taken by the instrument of a reagent test of the a specific type of chemical reagent test.. .

Method for verifying manufacturing measurements used for virtual analysis instrument in a factory


A method for verifying manufacturing measurements used for predicting outputs by virtual analysis instruments in a factory, which has production equipment and a virtual analysis instrument, comprises steps: using model-building data of the virtual analysis instrument to build a verification model via a pca method, and obtaining control limits of the verification model; inputting a plurality of pre-verification measurements into the verification model to calculate verification statistic, and using the verification statistic and the control limits to exclude at least one failure value from the pre-verification measurements to generate the validated measurements; and finally inputting the validated measurements into the virtual analysis instrument for predicting the outputs to determine that the manufacturing measurements are valid, and using the production equipment to undertake production according to predictions of the virtual analysis instrument. Thereby, the virtual analysis instrument can be prevented from predicting erroneous output results due to invalid input..

Apparatus for use in spinal surgery


Described here are deformable monolithic, stabilization devices, or implants, suitable for use within bone and between bones, for instance, to fuse vertebral bodies, to repair herniated discs, or to repair spinal compression fractures. The implants are introduced into a chose site at a first, smaller height and then plastically deformed to achieve a second, but unique, pre-selected, larger height.
