Gentle and efficient restructuring of wooden supporting structures

A major challenge of construction within existing contexts is that renovated as well as newly built supporting structures have to comply with similar requirements regarding statics and outer appearance. E.g. component connections have to comply with standards in the fields of fire protection, corrosion protection and protection of historical monuments. Steel elements pasted into wood provide a solution for these rquirements. 29.06.2015 | nachricht Read more

Rotatory ultrasound machining

Device for machining with rotatory ultrasound-vibrations: Reduced tool wear, very fine surface roughness and only little feathering of workpieces prove the advantages of hybrid manufacturing processes such as ultrasound machining. A newly developed device for machining combined with rotatory ultrasound oscillations enables a low-wear and thus more efficient processing of high performance materials such as hard metal, ceramic and fiber-reinforced plastics, compared to conventional methods. 29.06.2015 | nachricht Read more

Vector Phase Tracking of GNSS carrier signals

GNSS enables the determination of positions by the help of a carrier phase with an accuracy down to some centimeters. The GNSS receivers typically determine the carrier phase by help of a phase locked loop continuously. However, up to now GNSS receivers are tracking the carrier phase of each satellite and each frequency separately. This is a big drawback since the strong spectral and spatial correlation between carrier phases is not being exploited which makes phase tracking error-prone. Furthermore, this leads to a number of phase jumps especially with low-cost GNSS receivers. The new patented invention comprises a vector phase tracking method, which processes the carrier phases of all visible satellites on all available frequencies simultaneously, thus using the spectral and spatial correlation of the measurement. It enables a continuous, smooth tracking of carrier phases, even when the signal strength (C/NO) of individual satellites breaks down by 20 dB. Therefore the method is very suitable for the use of low-cost GNSS receivers/antennas in environments with multiple faults and ionospheric scintillations. 29.06.2015 | nachricht Read more

SMA therapy approach - Down-regulation of NCALD in spinal muscular atrophy and diseases with a disturbed calcium homeostasis

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disorder based on the loss of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) genes. The severity of the disease is inversely correlated with the copy number of the main disease modifying gene SMN2. In rare cases, siblings of SMA patients do not show SMA, although they carry exactly the same SMN1 and SMN2 gene status as their SMA affected relatives. So other genetic factors are able to fully protect homozygously SMN1-deleted individuals from developing SMA. The inventors found that this phenomenon might be caused by the overexpression of plastin 3, an actin-bundling protein, and/or low expression levels of the calcium sensing protein neurocalcin delta (NCALD). In vitro and in vivo studies show that inhibitors of neurocalcin delta (NCALD) are suitable for treating and preventing such disorders in a patient. Said inhibitors are, likewise, effective tools for in vitro neuronal differentiation and maturation, and restoration of impaired endocytosis. 22.06.2015 | nachricht Read more

Sampling Device for High-Throughput Light-Sheet-Based Microscopy

Light-sheet-based fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is a powerful method to analyze 3D living or fixed biological samples - such as cell cultures, embryos, or tissue - with high temporal resolution.

Method and Device for Fluorescence Investigations of Fixed and Living Three-Dimensional Samples

Light-sheet-based fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is a powerful method to analyze 3D living or fixed biological samples - such as cell cultures, embryos, or tissue - with high temporal resolution. An advanced method has been developed to minimize negative effects due to bleaching and light-induced stress. Additionally, it is suited for larger sample sizes. 18.06.2015 | nachricht Read more

Orthodontic Duplex Pliers - Intraorally applicable two-sided angled 3-prong pliers

In orthodontics, there is a multitude of intraoral devices and wires that can be activated by bending. However, due to restricted access, wire bending is often difficult if not impossible, especially in the palatine region and lingual of the mandible. Moreover, in many cases mirror-inverted pliers would be necessary for respective bending on the other side of the oral cavity. So far, there are no orthodontic pliers available, that enable ergonomic wire bending on both sides of the oral cavity. The present invention solves this problem by connecting the two handles with an olong hole system. According to the invention, the one-prong branch can be swiveled to the other side of the two-prong branch, thus allowing mirror-inverted application. A locking mechanism is activated when the pliers are closed to prevent accidental shifting of the branches. Another aspect of the invention is an convenient working angle between branches and handle, which facilitates intraoral application. A design model is available for demonstration. 16.06.2015 | nachricht Read more
