||PCT/NL2015/050268||CADENS BEHEER B.V.||EMANUEL, Mark Hans|
The invention pertains to improved contraceptive methods based on a reversible pseudo state of the Asherman's syndrome, in which the female body follows the normal natural part of the menstrual cycle that occurs in the ovary, the ovulatory cycle, and as a consequence the emotional life follows the normal mental passion patterns, but in which the normal uterine cycle and endometrium functions have been effectively switched off and the uterus resides in a quiescent phase preventing pregnancy and menstruation. The invention can also be used for preventing or suppressing abnormal endometrial bleeding.
WO/2016/171544 SHIFTED BINNING IN X-RAY SENSORS||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/NL2015/050269||TELEDYNE DALSA B.V.||DERKS, Henk|
The present invention is related to an image sensor and to a method for operating such sensor. The sensor of the invention comprises a pair of butted sensor tiles, each sensor tile comprising a pixel array comprising a plurality of rows and columns of photosensitive pixels. By constructing first row groups using at least one imaginary row, a different center-to-center distance exists between the different row groups than that which is obtained in prior art devices. More in particular, the construction according to the present invention allows the center positions of the rows to lie on a regular grid thereby lowering the geometrical distortion of the resulting image.

||PCT/NL2016/050219||SANOVO TECHNOLOGY NETHERLANDS B.V.||WIKKERINK, Dirk Willem|
An egg sorting and packaging method and assembly, wherein eggs are placed on an endless egg conveyor (2) by means of an egg supply device (3). The eggs are selectively moved from the endless egg conveyor into packaging lines (6a-6c), in which packaging lines the eggs are packed into egg packages. Eggs which are not released into one of the packaging lines remain on the endless egg conveyor and are recycled to pass by the packaging lines again in order to be released into one of the packaging lines.

The invention relates to a security document comprising an image area, a repeating image pattern in the image area of mutually spaced image elements at a mutual distance D and a layer of a plastics material overlying the image area and an array of lenses in the plastics material. The lenses are spaced at a mutual distance L which maybe equal to D or which may differ from D, the array of lenses overlying only a part of the image area surface and are formed in the plastics material within an image contour. Within the contour an image may be observed such as a Moiré magnification or a Moiré effect of light and dark stripes. The lenses may be formed for instance by laser ablation or by imprinting.
