Apparatus and controlled dosage of pills
This invention is an apparatus that, connected to a computer program, controls the process of filling of pills in trays for medicine dispensers or pillboxes with multiple chambers. The apparatus is characterized by applying a control scanner and a precision weight for precise dispensing of the pills and by gate templates to guide the pills to selected chambers in the target pillboxes.
Apparatus for drawing of a bodily fluid and method therefor
A sample holder that enables mid-infrared spectroscopy of a test sample using mid-infrared light is disclosed. The sample holder includes an inlet port and a sample chamber that comprises a sample region and a capillary channel that fluidically couples the inlet port and the sample region.
Smoking system having a liquid storage portion
A smoking system includes a capillary wick for holding liquid, at least one air inlet, at least one air outlet and a chamber between the air inlet and air outlet. The air inlet, the air outlet and the chamber are arranged so as to define an air flow route from the air inlet to the air outlet via the capillary wick so as to convey aerosol formed from the liquid to the air outlet.
Method of fabricating semiconductor device
A method of fabricating a semiconductor device includes forming line patterns over a first region of an etch target layer and a pre-pad pattern over second and third regions of the etch target layer; forming pillars over the line patterns and a sacrificial pad pattern over the pre-pad pattern; forming first spacers over sidewalls of the pillars such that the first spacers contact one another and form first pre-openings therebetween; removing the pillars to form second pre-openings; cutting the line patterns through the first and second pre-openings, and forming cut patterns; etching the pre-pad pattern using the sacrificial pad pattern as an etch mask, and forming a pad pattern; and etching the etch target layer using the cut patterns and the pad pattern as an etch mask, to define first patterns and a second pattern over the first region and the second region, respectively.. .

Correlation of disease activity with clonal expansions of human papillomavirus 16-specific cd8+ t-cells in patients with severe erosive oral lichen planus
A massive clonal expansion of activated cd8+ t-cells with increased frequency of hpv 16-specific cd8+ t-cells was discovered to be a characteristic of oral lichen planus (olp), indicating a causal link between hpv infection and the dysimmune process. The invention relates to compositions and methods for the diagnosis and treatment of olp patients..
