  • Publication number: 20200086248
    Abstract: An authentication system for authenticating a water filter cartridge at an appliance is provided. The water filter cartridge comprises a connection assembly having one or more connection devices that are structured for engaging an electrical connector of an appliance water filter manifold assembly of an appliance, to establish an electrical connection between the connection assembly and a controller of the appliance. A method of use of the water filter cartridge at the appliance comprises inserting the water filter cartridge into a receptacle of an appliance water filter manifold assembly. A method of authentication of the water filter cartridge comprises establishing an electrical communication link between a memory device of a water filter cartridge and an appliance water filter manifold assembly of the appliance, and retrieving, via the electrical communication link, a unique identifier associated with the water filter cartridge from the memory device.

  • Publication number: 20190321401
    Abstract: Provided herein are binding molecules, such as those that recognize or bind a peptide epitope of a cancer antigen, such as expressed on a cancer cell, including cells infected with human papilloma virus (HPV) or that contain HPV DNA sequences and/or those that recognize or bind a peptide epitope of HPV 16 E6 or E7, in the context of a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecule. Among the provided binding molecules are T cell receptors (TCRs) or antibodies, including antigen-binding fragments thereof, that bind or recognize such peptide epitopes. The present disclosure further relates to engineered cells comprising such binding molecules, e.g., TCRs or antibodies (and chimeric antigen receptors containing the antibodies), and uses thereof in adoptive cell therapy.

  • Patent number: 10412041
    Abstract: A system is provided in which a position for each device (relative to other devices) in a topology, and a corresponding device ID for each device, may be predetermined. Then, the predetermined position and corresponding device ID for each device may be compared to actual devices in a topology having preprogrammed device ID's and pre-assigned IP addresses. If the comparison produces a match, the pre-assigned IP addresses in the actual devices may be utilized. However, if the comparison does not produce a match, the condition may be reported for further action.

  • Patent number: 10412042
    Abstract: IP addresses may be allocated to devices in an industrial control system by applying starting address information in combination with each device's relative position in a local network. The starting address information, which may include an IP subnet address, gateway address, subnet mask, subnet size, and/or local network group identifier, may be provided to a first positioned, or “initiator,” device in a local network. The initiator device may determine its IP address by applying the starting address information and knowledge of being the first positioned device. The initiator device may send the position information and at least a portion of the starting address information to a next device, which may determine its relative position based on the received position information, and which may apply its relative position with the portion of the starting address information to determine its IP address. This process may continue sequentially for each device.

  • Patent number: 8763606
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an inhaler having a vibration element for aerosolizing medicament contained in a blister pack, wherein a plurality of individual blister packs are arranged in a rotary cassette that fits within a housing, and wherein the individual blister packs are dragged up into a clamping position between the vibration element and a piercing element. The motion of the blister pack is controlled by a rotary disk within the housing which further coordinates the movement of the piercing and vibrating elements for the piercing and deaggregation, respectively, of the individual blister packs.

  • Publication number: 20110144736
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a flexible expandable stent for implantation in a body lumen, such as a coronary artery. The stent generally includes a series of metallic cylindrical rings longitudinally aligned on a common axis of the stent and interconnected by a series of links which be polymeric or metallic. Varying configurations and patterns of the links provides longitudinal and flexural flexibility to the stent while maintaining sufficient column strength to space the cylindrical rings along the longitudinal axis. The metallic material forming the rings provides the necessary radial stiffness.
