Title: Stylin Kombs

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/150293   Filing Date: 07/Jul/2008

Abstract:Stylin Kombs address the problem of separating hair that is not being styled from the portion that is being styled without the use of pins, short combs, rubber band or braiding. Styling hair can be a quicker process once the "komb" which fits the hair is pressed down onto the hair that needs to be separated while the other hair is being worked on. Once the stylist is ready for more hair to work with the Stylin Komb is then pulled upward and removed from the separated portion of the hair and placed on to the next part of the hair that needs to be separated. This process is repeated until the styling process is completed. Stylin kombs can also be used to part the hair during the hair separation process. This "komb" can also be used an accessory with or without decorative flowers, cords and ribbon. This komb is very versatile because it can be changed into a hair accessory beautifies any hair style or type. The "Komb" is fits the shape of the head and the rim and sides where you hold the comb is made of flexible plastic or other flexible material. The teeth of the comb are made from a harder plastic or metal and protrude downward.

Abstract:Described are hair styling devices and methods. A hair straightening and drying device includes a hair blow dryer integrated into a flat iron and operable to dry damp hair placed within the flat iron. A hair straightening and drying device can include a handle portion housing a motorized fan, opposing distal arms housing heatable surfaces coupled to heating elements and at least one distal portion housing an air duct configured to receive air from the motorized fan and to channel the air to the hair that is being styled, and a hinge that provides for rotation of the distal portions in relation to the handle portion and each other. The motorized fan creates a pressure gradient causing air to flow into an air duct enclosed in one of the distal portions and the air is dispersed through openings in the duct onto hair that is being styled and dried. Each distal portion houses a heatable surface that is heated by a heating element. The opposing heatable surfaces are closed around strands of hair to straighten the hair. In this manner, damp hair is straightened and blown dry at the same time creating time efficiencies and allowing for certain styling techniques.

Title: METHODS FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL DETECTION/QUANTIFICATION OF A NUCLEIC ACID

Applicant/Assignee: AGENCY FOR SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH

Application No.: 12/376782   Filing Date: 08/Aug/2006

Abstract:The invention provides methods and kits for the electrochemical detection and/or quantification of a target nucleic acid molecule by means of a detection electrode. In one method there is immobilized on the detection electrode a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) capture molecule, which has a nucleotide sequence that is at least partially complementary to at least a portion of the target nucleic acid molecule. The electrode is contacted with a solution expected to include the target nucleic acid molecule and the target nucleic acid molecule allowed to hybridize to the PNA, thereby allowing the formation of a complex between the PNA capture molecule and the target nucleic acid molecule. A polymerisable positively chargeable precursor is added, which associates to the complex formed between the PNA capture molecule and the target nucleic acid molecule. A suitable reactant molecule is added, initiating the polymerisation of the polymerisable positively chargeable precursor and the formation of an electroconductive polymer. An electrochemical measurement at the detection electrode is performed. In another method a nucleic acid capture molecule is immobilized on the electrode. In this method a polymerisable positively chargeable precursor, a suitable substrate molecule, and an enzyme attached to a detection probe nucleic acid molecule are used. The detection probe nucleic acid molecule is at least partially complementary to at least a portion of the target nucleic acid molecule. The detection probe hybridizes to a portion of the target nucleic acid that is different from the portion to which the capture nucleic acid molecule hybridises.

Abstract:The invention provides a method of electrically detecting a biological analyte molecule by means of a pair of electrodes. The electrodes are arranged at a distance from one another within a sensing zone. A capture molecule, which has an affinity to the analyte molecule and which is capable of forming a complex with the analyte molecule, is immobilised on an immobilisation unit. The immobilisation unit is contacted with a solution suspected to comprise the analyte molecule. The analyte molecule is allowed to form a complex with the capture molecule. The invention also provides a probe defined by a nanoparticulate tag that comprises or consists of electrically conducting matter that is capable of chemically interacting with the analyte molecule. In the method of the invention the electrically conducting nanoparticulate tag is added. Thereby the electrically conducting nanoparticulate tag is allowed to associate to the complex formed between the capture molecule and the analyte molecule. The presence of the analyte molecule is determined based on an electrical characteristic, influenced by the electrically conducting nanoparticulate tag, of a region in the sensing zone.

Title: Environmentally safe hairbrush with automatically disentangling removable handle, magnetic rollers and removable bristles

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/383333   Filing Date: 23/Mar/2009

Abstract:A hairbrush comprises a detachable handle

a metal roller including linear apertures and disposable bristles, and a coupling mechanism allowing the roller to automatically rotate on an axis of rotation when it encounters a tangle during use. A degree of resistance of the roller to rotation varies to correspond to a hair type of the client. A ribbed inner wall of a receiving portion of the roller receives a top portion of the handle. The top portion may have within it prongs and a movable piece inward of the prongs that varies the pressure against rotation of the roller. Ball bearings extend outwardly from the prongs to the ribbed inner wall. Bumps on the prongs keep the handle from detaching from the roller unless an exertion is made. A magnetic attraction between the rollers emplaces the rollers firmly in the hair and allows the brush to be extended.

Applicant/Assignee: NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED INDUSTRIAL SCIENCEAND TECHNOLOGY

Application No.: 12/792580   Filing Date: 02/Jun/2010

Abstract:Stem cell reprogramming genes cloned into a single sustained expression-type Sendai viral vector are shown to reprogram differentiated somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells without integration of vector sequences into the host cell's genome. The genes are transduced into normal differentiated somatic cells via infection with recombinant Sendai virus. After expression of the reprogramming genes and subsequent induction of pluripotency, the vector genome RNA including the reprogramming genes is removed from the cell to establish an iPS cell that is genetically identical to the parent somatic differentiated cell thus reducing the risk of tumorigenic transformation caused by random integration of vector sequences into the host genome. The method promises to provide safe, autologous iPS cells that can be used for human cell replacement and regeneration therapeutic applications.
