  • Publication number: 20220365072
    Abstract: Methods and devices are provided herein for identifying a cell population comprising an effector cell that exerts an extracellular effect. In one embodiment the method comprises retaining in a microreactor a cell population comprising one or more effector cells, wherein the contents of the microreactor further comprise a readout particle population comprising one or more readout particles, incubating the cell population and the readout particle population within the microreactor, assaying the cell population for the presence of the extracellular effect, wherein the readout particle population or subpopulation thereof provides a direct or indirect readout of the extracellular effect, and determining, based on the results of the assaying step, whether one or more effector cells within the cell population exerts the extracellular effect on the readout particle. If an extracellular effect is measured, the cell population is recovered for further analysis to determine the cell or cells responsible for the effect.

  • Publication number: 20120280031
    Abstract: A method for using a quick response (QR) code in printed materials includes determining a long URL for use with a product or service (501). A short URL is created based on the long URL (503). The short URL is then included within a quick response (QR) code (505). Next, the QR code is used in connection with printed matter in a channel of trade (507). Upon scanning the code (509), the user is redirected to the long URL based on the short URL at a remote computer system (511, 513). Finally, an advertiser or business owner can determine if the QR code should be redeployed in the same or a different channel of trade based on the use and pass though of the short URL (517, 523, 525).
