  • Patent number: 9708600
    Abstract: Collection devices and kits for biological sample collection include a biologic sample collection device having a hydrophilic swab matrix that includes a modified polycaprolactone (PCL). Methods of production and use thereof are also described herein. The biologic sample collection devices, kits and methods described herein are used to collect a biologic sample (e.g., blood, buccal cells, etc.) and to enable extraction of nucleic acids (e.g., DNA) from that biologic sample so that the nucleic acids can be analyzed (e.g., sequencing and subsequent analyzes of DNA).

  • Patent number: 9662096
    Abstract: Collection devices, kits and methods related to sample collection and analysis can be used to collect and store samples (e.g., biological samples) from a variety of sources and optionally, for analysis of such samples (e.g., forensics analysis, medical diagnostics, etc.). Methods of production and use thereof are described herein. A device for collecting a sample (e.g., a sample including nucleic acid) includes an outer protective housing and a collection tip operably coupled to a carrier. The collection tip includes a hydrophilic and at least partially soluble material (e.g., hydrophilic and at least partially soluble polycaprolactone (PCL)) and is movable (e.g., retractable) from a first protected position within the outer protective housing to a second collecting position outside the outer protective housing.

  • Publication number: 20110287524
    Abstract: A method and system to predict a design of an article of manufacture, which can include the steps of introducing a biological organism into a test environment to activate at least one molecular component of the biological organism representing at least one set of genetic characters of the biological organism; monitoring for change in at least one expression phenomenon pattern in response to the test environment; translating the monitored change in the at least one expression phenomenon pattern into a molecular data profile; interrogating the molecular data profile against a stored database to generate an information pattern of a phenotype correlated to the molecular data profile; and translating the information pattern of the phenotype into a correlated design component of the article of manufacture.
