Page 49 - A method is provided for determining bacterial levels in urine samples, which method depends on the quantitative determination of bacterial adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the presence of non-bacterial adenosine triphosphate. After the removal of nonbacterial ATP, the bacterial ATP is released by cell rupture and is measured by an enzymatic bioluminescent assay using an enzyme obtained from the firefly.
Page 95 - This invention is a panel for selectively absorbing solar thermal energy comprising a metallic substrate, and a solar thermal energy absorbing coating carried on the bright metallic material. A layer of zinc is interposed between the metal substrate and the layer of bright material or the metallic substrate can be anodized for receiving the layer of bright metallic material. Also disclosed is the method for producing the coating which selectively absorbs solar thermal energy.
Page 35 - An electron microscope is described, which includes an electron source, a condenser lens having either a circular aperture for focusing a solid cone of electrons onto a specimen or an annular aperture for focusing a hollow cone of electrons onto the specimen, and an objective lens with an annular objective aperture, for focusing electrons passing through the specimen onto an image plane. The invention also entails a method of making the annular objective aperture, using electron imaging, electrolytic...
