Toxicity detector for liquid consumable by humans

A process provides for testing for certain toxins and poisons in liquids, gases and solids that are consumed by humans or otherwise come in contact with humans. In the process, the material to be tested is mixed with aerobic microorganisms in a biomass to form a mixture. The mixture is observed to determine if a preselected change in the biomass occurs. Preferably, the mixture is observed to determine if the biomass has a normal rate of respiration.

Anti-infection and toxin elimination device

The invention provides an apparatus for removing airborne pathogens and toxic substances from a surface of an article or a volume of air, comprising: a main processing chamber having a door for ingress to and egress from the main processing chamber, at least two high voltage electrodes for generating a current. The electrode can form ozone, if desired, to destroy pathogens. Optionally, the electrodes can be in a sealed or unsealed glass tube, with or without mercury, to generate ultraviolet light for photochemical reaction with pathogens or other contaminants. The apparatus also includes a post processing chamber comprising at least one filter for removing or absorbing airborne particulates and pathogens, and includes low voltage electrodes to neutralize charges in air transmitted from the main processing chamber. The system further includes a shutter between the main processing chamber and the post processing chamber for preventing ultraviolet light from entering the post processing chamber from the main processing chamber; and a fan for moving fluid from the main processing chamber to the post processing chamber.

Method for analyzing the influence of an active substance on biological cells

Disclosed is a method for analyzing the influence of an active substance on cells, according to which the cells are immobilized on s sample carrier (13, 14) that is located inside a reaction chamber (12). Electrical signals that make it possible to draw a conclusion about the electrical properties of the cells (11) can be read out via the electrically conductive sample carrier (14) by impinging the reaction chamber with the active substance (which is contained in the nutrient solution for the cells, for example). Said method allows especially dead cells to be detected, whereby the toxic effect of the active substance can be tested. Said test makes it possible to limit or even dispense with the otherwise necessary tests on animals. (common LD50 toxicity tests).

Toxic material containing device and method for reducing toxicity of the toxic material in the containing device

Device and method for reducing toxicity of a toxic material (106, 406) in a toxic material containing device (100, 400). A toxic material containing device (100, 400) has a first chamber (104, 404) containing a toxic material (106, 406) and a second chamber (108, 408) containing a neutralizing material (110, 410) capable of reducing the toxicity of the toxic material (106, 406) when the toxic material (106, 406) and the neutralizing material (110, 410) are combined. A control mechanism (122, 422) enables selective combining of the toxic material (106, 406) and the neutralizing material (110, 410) to provide a combined material (230) that is less toxic than the toxic material (106, 406). The device and method enable the toxicity of a toxic material (106, 406) in a device (100, 400), such as liquid mercury in a liquid mercury containing device, to be reduced to a safe level to facilitate safe disposal of the device (100, 400).

Rearing of snakes for producing poison components

The invention relates to biology and the pharmaceutical industry, in particular to the breeding of snakes and, more specifically of a common viper-Vipera Berush in order to produce a natural biologically active component which is afterwards used for producing drugs containing a natural biologically active component extracted from poison. The inventive method consists in capturing snakes and keeping them in the cages of an ophidiarium provided with conditions which are identical to the natural conditions, namely with respect to heat and light conditions. The snakes are fed with veal and frogs and drink chlorine-free water. Said method for rearing and breeding snakes makes it possible to create standard conditions for rearing and feeding snakes, thereby producing raw poison with specified content of the toxic components.
