  • Publication number: 20190282141
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein relate to measuring multiple analytes in a medical system configured to draw in biological fluids. The system can include a fluid handling network configured to receive a fluid sample drawn from a patient and to deliver at least a portion of the fluid sample to an analyte measurement system. The measurement system can include a flow cell incorporated in line in a fluid system, shaped to allow a light source to directly abut the flow cell and cause radiation to pass through to a spectrometer on the other side.

  • Publication number: 20190234167
    Abstract: Apparatus and methodologies are provided for modifying the wellhead structure of a production well to seal the production well before subterranean fracturing operations. The apparatus includes an enclosure tubular and adapter 5 for sealingly engaging the polish rod extending from the wellhead structure, while maintaining the entire rod string in tension in a manner to ensure that the string and its connection with the downhole pump are not compromised. More specifically, the present preparations involve retaining the rod string in tension while removing at least the stuffing box from the wellhead structure, and 10 temporarily installing the enclosure tubular and adapter to seal the wellhead, preventing wellbore blowouts.

  • Patent number: 10242360
    Abstract: A data protection system for online data is described that can be used to obfuscate sensitive data to relieve security compliance requirements for one or more entities involved in processing, storing, and/or communicating the sensitive data to complete an online purchase transaction. The data protection system can receive online purchase data from a client application, and then remove the sensitive information of the online purchase data to sanitize the online purchase data. The data protection system can also maintain the sensitive information, and communicate the sanitized online purchase data to an eCommerce server that then communicates with a payment service provider for payment authorization of the online purchase, where the sanitized online purchase data relieves security compliance requirements at the eCommerce server.

  • Patent number: 9976543
    Abstract: A transmission for a motor vehicle includes an input shaft, a transmission pump, a transmission sump and a pump-driving element, which is preferably a drive gear. The drive gear and the transmission pump are located in the transmission sump. Power is transmitted from the input shaft to the transmission pump through the drive gear. In a preferred embodiment, power is transmitted from the input shaft to the drive gear through at least one gear, and from the drive gear to the transmission pump through a pump shaft. The drive gear is preferably at least partially enclosed by a shroud, coupled to the transmission pump, in order to separate the drive gear from transmission fluid located in the transmission sump and thereby reduce drag on the drive gear. The shroud preferably also includes a discharge port so that transmission fluid located in the shroud is expelled through the discharge port when the drive gear rotates.

  • Patent number: 8561208
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for handling secure user interface content. In one aspect, a method includes receiving, at a data processing apparatus, content over a communication network from a computing system separate from the data processing apparatus; determining that the received content is authentic secure content; retrieving information stored at the data processing apparatus and previously selected by a user for purposes of securing user interface content; rendering the received content, to a display of the data processing apparatus, as a user interface with a visual wrapper, where the visual wrapper includes the retrieved information, visually separates the user interface from other visual elements on the display, and includes an indication that the user interface is secure; and processing input received through the user interface.
