WO/2015/174862 POLYNUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCE||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/050060||VICTORIA LINK LIMITED ||HODGKISS, Justin |
The present invention provides for a polynucleotide sequence (aptamer) comprising the sequence: 5'- AAGGGATGCCGTTTGGGCCCAAGTTCGGCATAGTG-3' (SEQ ID No: 2) and a method of using this polynucleotide sequence to detect small molecules in a sample. The polynucleotide sequence and method of the present invention may be useful in the detection of small molecules in a sample by using a nanoparticle coated with the polynucleotide sequence to detect the presence of small molecules in a sample using a colorimetric aggregation assay.

||PCT/NZ2015/050061||VICTORIA LINK LIMITED ||HODGKISS, Justin |
The present invention provides for a method of optimisation of a polynucleotide sequence for use in an aptamer based assay, comprising adding additional bases to the ligand binding domain. The invention also covers methods of detecting target molecules in a sample using 5 optimised polynucleotide sequences in a suitable detection assay.
WO/2015/174859 USABILITY FEATURES FOR RESPIRATORY HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/050054||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED ||HENSMAN, Sally Margaret |
A humidification system for delivering humidified gases to a user can include a heater base, humidification chamber having an inlet, outlet, and associated fluid conduit, and breathing circuit including a supply conduit, inspiratory conduit, and optional expiratory conduit. The humidification system can include various features to help make set-up less difficult and time-consuming. For example, the supply conduit, inspiratory conduit, and optional expiratory conduit can be coupled into a one-piece circuit to aid set-up. Various components can be color-coded and can have corresponding structures to indicate which components should be connected to one another during set-up. Such features can also help make the set-up process more intuitive for an operator, which can reduce the need for specialized training and reduce the number of potential errors.
WO/2015/174856 DEVICES AND METHODS FOR IDENTIFICATION OF MEDICAMENT DELIVERY DEVICES||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/000037||NEXUS6 LIMITED ||SUTHERLAND, Garth Campbell |
This invention relates to a compliance monitor for monitoring usage of a medicament delivery device. The medicament delivery device includes a store of medicament, a medicament dispensing means for delivering a dose of medicament. The compliance monitor includes a compliance monitor housing adapted to attach to the medicament delivery device, a dose detection means for determining when a dose of medicament is dispensed, and a recognition means for identifying the properties of the medicament delivery device.
WO/2015/174861 ACTIVE SMOKE FILTRATION FOR INSUFFLATION||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/050059||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED ||SURENDRA, Wisnu Arya |
An active smoke filtration unit is used to remove smoke during laparoscopic surgery. The active smoke filtration unit is part of a recirculation circuit. The recirculation circuit is pneumatically isolated from a primary flow generator, such as an insufflator, by a valve assembly. The active smoke filtration unit can be housed separately from the valve assembly or together with the valve assembly. The recirculation circuit can include a humidifier to heat and humidify the insufflation gases.
WO/2015/174858 BOAT SUPPORT FRAME LOADING AND UNLOADING APPARATUS||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/050053||SUELEX LIMITED ||BACON, Lex Noel |
In one aspect the invention provides a boat support frame loading and unloading apparatus configured to draw a boat on to and off a boat support frame. This boat support frame has a loading end and a terminal end opposite to the loading end. The apparatus provided includes at least one roller assembly mounted to the support frame adjacent to the loading end of the support frame, said at least one roller assembly incorporating at least one roller element. The apparatus also includes at least one drive mechanism configured to rotate one or more roller elements to draw a boat onto and off the support frame through the loading end of the support frame. The roller assembly also includes a hull contact surface formed by a flexible belt which has a circumference greater than the circumference of the said at least one roller element incorporated into the roller assembly.
WO/2015/174855 A SEAT OR PART THEREOF||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/000030||SCARLETT, Rouand James Mortimer ||SCARLETT, Rouand James Mortimer |
As shown in figure 1 there is a torso support for a seat, having: • an padding base 2; • an outer link 3; • an inner link 4; • a U shaped clamp 6; • a release button 5; • a pivot pin 7; and • a seat attachment bracket 8. The inner link 4 has a space housing the button 5. The button 5 can be pressed so it pivots between locking and unlocking dispositions. When in the locking disposition the inner edge 13 of the button is close to a short arm of the clamp so they are almost abutting. This prevent the inner link 14 pivoting because to move in that way would cause a clash between the inner edge of the clamp 6 and the button 5.
