This invention proposes an apparatus for pyrolysing or gasifying material containing an organic content. The apparatus comprises an oven (10) mounted for rotation on at least one support (12, 14). The oven (10) comprises a main processing chamber (16) for heating the material in a low or zero oxygen atmosphere to gasify or pyrolyse its organic content. A secondary processing chamber (18) for receiving processed material from the main processing chamber (16) is also provided. An eddy current separator (22) is positioned adjacent or in the secondary processing chamber (18) and is located such that as the oven rotates, material in the second processing chamber repeatedly passes it. The eddy current separator (22) is orientated such that, in use, it ejects non-ferrous metals from the secondary processing chamber (18).

An image processing apparatus uses first and second digital vascular image data to register two images. The two images may be from different imaging modes. The first and second images are processed with a two- dimensional, directional filter (500) that has the effect of producing clusters of orthogonally adjacent image data points in which the magnitude of an intensity gradient between each orthogonally adjacent image data point is less than a predetermined value. Subsequently, common clusters are identified between the first and second image data using a corner detecting algorithm (600). The directional filter produces "stepping" features, where vascular features would otherwise appear with smooth edges. These numerous features are identified by the corner detecting algorithm and can be used (1000) for registering common clusters between the first and second image data. The filter may be a rotating Gabor filter matched to vascular features in the images.

||PCT/GB2014/050486||MARKES INTERNATIONAL LIMITED||SCHANEN, Pierre|
An analytical apparatus (1) for mass spectrometry comprises an electron impact ioniser including an electron emitter (22) and an ionisation target zone (18). The target zone (18) is arranged to be populated with matter to be ionised for analysis. An electron extracting element (36) is aligned with an electron pathway (34) defined between the electron emitter (22) and the ionisation target zone (18). The electron extracting element (36) is configured to accelerate electrons away from the emitter (22) along the electron pathway (34) between the emitter (22) and the extracting element (36) and to decelerate the electrons along the electron pathway (34) between the extracting element (36) and the ionisation target zone (18) to enable soft ionisation while avoiding the effects of coulombic repulsion at the electron source (22).
