A first end (14) of the first lock member (5) is adapted to be installed in the first end portion (10) of the adaptor slot (9). A second end portion (15) of the first lock member (5) includes a first bearing surface (16) including a first orifice (17) therein. A first end (18) of the second lock member (6) is adapted to be installed on the second end portion (11) of the adaptor slot (9). A second end of the second lock member (6) includes a second bearing surface (19), an engagement portion, and a second orifice therethrough. The engagement portion is shaped to said cutout (13) of said wear plate (3). In use, the wear plate (3) is aligned on said adaptor (2), said first lock member (5) is installed in said first end (10) portion of said adaptor slot (9), said second lock member (6) is then installed in said second end portion (11) of said adaptor slot (9), such that, the bearing surfaces substantially bear against each other, and such that each of said orifices are substantially aligned. Thereafter, said fastener (7) is adapted to be installed in said aligned orifices (17, 20)) to lock said locking members together, thereby releasably securing said wear plate (3) to said adaptor (2).

||PCT/AU2014/000913||QMR (IP) PTY LTD||CAVANOUGH, Gary|
A portable and disposable apparatus for rapidly measuring the depth of blast holes and water levels including a disposable vessel filled with material to weight the vessel. The vessel adapted to lowered into a blast hole at the end of a cord from means to dispense the cord and record the depth at which water in the hole or the bottom of the hole, causes immediate deceleration of the vessel and the temporary and/or sustained release of tension in the cord and wherein, the cord is cut post measurement and disposed of with the vessel in the hole.

||PCT/AU2014/000973||RAPAPORT, Morris||RAPAPORT, Morris|
A new dental appliance incorporates mandibular advancement blocks into upper and lower sequential plastic aligners, enabling simultaneous treatment of both crooked teeth and an undershot jaw. Because the alignment of teeth can proceed together with the correction of the jaw relationship and upper dental protrusion, this approach is far more efficient than a sequential treatment approach of first correcting jaw alignment with mandibular advancement and then afterwards, straightening the teeth with sequential plastic aligners.

||PCT/AU2014/000976||PRESTON, John||PRESTON, John|
A building module for use in construction of a structure incorporating a plurality of said modules which together form at least part of the structure. Each building module comprises a first peripheral frame of a first size defining a space which receives a layer of barrier material, a second peripheral frame of a second size defining a space which receives a layer of barrier material and which is joined at a first junction to the first peripheral frame of the first size in abutting end to end relationship to form a first auxiliary module. A third peripheral frame has the same size as the first peripheral frame and which defines a space which receives a layer of barrier material. A fourth peripheral frame has the same size as the second peripheral frame and which defines a space which receives a layer of barrier material and which is joined at a second junction to the third peripheral frame of the first size in abutting end to end relationship to form a second auxiliary module. The first and second auxiliary modules are attached side by side to form said building module; wherein the first and second auxiliary modules are attached to each other so that the first and second junctions are staggered along the length of the structure.
WO/2015/054733 IMPROVED THERMOCYCLER||WO||23.04.2015|
||PCT/AU2014/000983||BIO MOLECULAR SYSTEMS PTY LTD||CORBETT, John|
The present invention provides a thermocycler comprising: a rotatable platform having a plurality of reaction wells or being adapted to receive a plurality of reaction containers, wherein the rotatable platform and/or the reaction wells are formed, at least in part, of a material which is adapted to be inductively heated by exposure to electromagnetic energy. An electromagnetic energy source is provided and is configured to direct electromagnetic energy at the rotatable platform, wherein the electromagnetic energy source surrounds a sufficient amount of the rotatable platform in order to heat the entire platform substantially simultaneously. In preferred embodiments, the electromagnetic energy source completely surrounds the rotatable platform. The invention further comprises a method of cycling a reaction mixture between predetermined temperatures utilising the novel thermocycler apparatus of the invention. The invention also comprises use of the novel thermocycler apparatus of the invention for conducting a nucleic acid amplification reaction such as the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and the ligase chain reaction (LCR).
