  • Patent number: 10393553
    Abstract: A modular sensor for a fluidic analysis or biological assay system, such as an analytical instrument system, and other systems involving fluid flow, includes a cap and base which include one or more sensors therein, which may be a flow sensor, a pressure sensor, a temperature sensor, a pH sensor, and so forth. The base of the modular sensor includes input and output ports for fluid passageways therethrough to provide a fluid pathway which is at least partially adjacent to or near the sensor. The modular sensor may also include an adapter having ports adapted to sealingly engage with fitting assemblies. The sensor may be partially or wholly encapsulated as part of the base of the modular sensor. The modular sensor's base and cap are adapted so that a first modular sensor can be disconnected and removed from a fluidic system and a second modular sensor can be added and connected to the system in place of the first modular sensor.

  • Patent number: 10389769
    Abstract: Online meeting experience is integrated with online and/or offline collaborative workspace(s). Documents and other content generated through team collaboration and managed by a content management system are automatically made available during the meeting, updated, and stored in collaborative workspace linked to a particular meeting. Newly generated content during the meeting is also added to the workspace. As a result, online meetings become part of the collaborative workspace rendering reusable and searchable data through meeting content and updates to associated documents.

  • Patent number: 10299744
    Abstract: An x-ray detector comprises: a housing, including a cover removably fastened on a flange of a flanged base and forming a semi-hermetic seal therebetween, the flanged base including a bottom surface and the flange surrounding a perimeter of the bottom surface; and an x-ray imager positioned on the bottom surface, the x-ray imager including a scintillator and an image sensor, wherein the seal semi-hermetically encloses the x-ray imager in the housing, and is positioned nonadjacently to surfaces in contact with the x-ray imager. In this way, a simpler and less costly seal for a digital x-ray panel can be provide; furthermore, the seal is reusable and resealable, facilitating repair and refurbishment of the device.

  • Publication number: 20190086609
    Abstract: A method includes providing a semiconductor wafer that includes at least one optical waveguide extending in a longitudinal direction. Stealth dicing laser processing is applied to the semiconductor wafer by producing defect regions into the wafer along at least one cutting line. The cutting line is oblique to the longitudinal direction of the at least one optical waveguide. The wafer is expanded to induce fracture thereof at the at least one cutting line, thereby producing an end surface of the at least one optical waveguide. The end surface is oblique to the longitudinal direction of the at least one optical waveguide.
