||PCT/NZ2015/050038||GRANVILLE, Simon Edward||GRANVILLE, Simon Edward|
Disclosed herein are magnetic materials comprising rare earth nitrides and, more particularly, magnetic materials comprising multilayer-structured materials comprising one relatively soft and one relatively hard magnetic layer. The magnetic materials comprise a first ferromagnetic layer, a second ferromagnetic layer, and a blocking layer between and in contact with each of the first 5 and second ferromagnetic layers. The first and second ferromagnetic layers have different coercive fields. The first ferromagnetic layer comprises a first rare earth nitride material and the second ferromagnetic layer comprises a second rare earth nitride material. Also disclosed are methods for preparing the materials. The materials are useful in the fabrication of devices, such as GMR magnetic field sensors, MRAM devices, TMR magnetic field sensors, and magnetic 10 tunnel junctions.

WO/2015/147656 AUTOMATIC PROCESS AND SYSTEM FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT FOR APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/000019||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||ALI, Syed Adeel|
A computer system and process is provided to generate computer programming code, such as in a Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK generated allows an application to use a given API. An API description interface of the system is operable to receive API-description code describing one or more endpoints of the API. A template interface is operable to receive one or more templates of code defining classes and/or functions in a programming language which can be selected by the selection of a set of templates. A data store is operable to use a defined data structure to store records of API description code to provide a structured stored description of the API. A code generation module is operable to combine records of API with templates of code which are arranged in sets by the language of the code they contain. The combining of records and code from templates may use pointers to a data structure which is common to corresponding templates in different sets to allow templates of selected languages to be combined with any API description stored.

Described herein are stable veterinary formulations and methods of treatment and use, comprising at least one macrocyclic lactone and levamisole as active anthelmintic agents, optionally also with at least one benzimidazole class anthelmintic, wherein the actives are solubilised together in a solvent system comprising dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). The veterinary formulations, methods and use thereof include the ability to deliver two or more anthelmintic actives in the one solution (or suspension) whilst also maintaining formulation stability when stored over a period of time. Delivery of different anthelmintics with different activities allows several classes of parasite to be targeted in one dose.
