  • Publication number: 20190362304
    Abstract: An article tracking system including: a plurality of tags, each tag being attached to a respective article in use and including: a power supply; a tag transceiver that transmits or receives messages; and a tag processing device; a number of tag readers, each tag reader including: at least one reader transceiver that transmits or receives messages; and, a reader processing device in communication with the at least one tag reader; and, at least one processing system in communication with the number of tag readers, and wherein in use each tag reader: generates a message; and, transmits the message to one or more tags within an operating range of the reader, wherein ones of the one or more tags in a passive operating mode are responsive to the message to: receive the message; selectively change a tag operating mode; and, if the message is a broadcast message, transmit a tag message at least partially indicative of an identity of the tag; receives any tag messages; generates location data at least partially indica

  • Publication number: 20180354669
    Abstract: A sealed multi-handled bag is provided that includes a first handle at a first end and a second handle at a second end. In one embodiment, the handles are on substantially opposite ends of the bag. The sealed bag may be made from plastic and may contain loose materials, such as a salt. In some embodiments, one or more of the handles are formed from heat-sealed layers of bag material having a grip cut therein. A method for filling and sealing the multi-handled sealed bag includes filling a bag having a first closed end through a second open end, and sealing the second open end to form a handle. In one embodiment, sealing the second open end includes heat-sealing opposing layers of bag material together and cutting a handle through the layers. In another embodiment, the method includes folding-over the layers of bag material.

  • Patent number: 7473772
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, and virology. More particularly, it relates to the identification of GB virus B (GBV-B)/HCV chimeras. The invention involves nucleic acid constructs and compositions encoding GBV-B/HCV chimera, including at least part of a 5? NTR derived from a HCV 5? NTR. This construct, and chimeric versions of it, may be employed to study GBV-B and related hepatitis family members, such as hepatitis C virus. The invention thus includes methods of preparing GBV-B/HCV chimeric sequences, constructs, and viruses, as well as methods of employing these compositions.
