  • Publication number: 20190358434
    Abstract: A guide extension catheter may include a proximal shaft and a tubular distal sheath including an exchange channel allowing for access (e.g. side access) into the lumen. Guide extension catheters may be used in conjunction with a guide catheter and a medical device having a distal region disposed within the guide catheter and a proximal region disposed outside of the guide catheter. A portion of the proximal region of the medical device can be passed through the exchange channel and into the lumen, and the guide extension catheter can be advanced into the guide catheter over the medical device without removing the medical device from the guide catheter. The exchange channel can extend in a straight line path along the sheath, or may extend in an indirect path along the sheath.

  • Patent number: 10287938
    Abstract: A method for a vehicle comprises responsive to installation of a new exhaust particulate filter, doping fuel with an ash-producing additive, and combusting the doped fuel to produce ash, wherein the ash deposits as an ash coating on the new exhaust particulate filter. In this way, a filtration efficiency of an exhaust particulate filter can be increased quickly as compared to a filter with no deposited ash coating, inexpensively as compared to conventional methods using membranes, and with a lower back pressure drop as compared to conventional methods.

  • Patent number: 8063196
    Abstract: The invention provides a set of highly orthogonal six-code universal sequences for use in bDNA singleplex and multiplex nucleic acid hybridization assays. The six-code orthogonal sequences do not cross-hybridize and thus, minimize or eliminate the 3-mer cross-hybridization inherent in the second and third generation bDNA assays. The highly orthogonal universal sequences may be used in singleplex or multiplex bDNA assays quantitatively and qualitatively to determine mRNA levels in a sample; to screen for and genotype targets, such as viruses, that are present in low volumes in a sample; to screen for and genotype SNPs; and to measure changes in the amount of a gene in a sample such as when gene amplifications or deletions occur. The highly orthogonal universal sequences may also be used as universal capture probes to selectively bind assay components in a way that facilitates their further analysis.

  • Publication number: 20070231821
    Abstract: Methods of determining the presence or amount of a target polynucleotide in a sample are provided. A sample that contains a target polynucleotide, a polynucleotide that may include nucleic acid analogs and that is complementary to a target nucleic acid sequence of the target polynucleotide, and a dye for which the rate of change in an optical property is different in the presence and absence of a target polynucleotide/polynucleotide hybrid are combined to produce a reaction mixture. The rate of change in an optical property of the dye in the reaction mixture is compared to a reference value characteristic of the rate of change in the optical property of the dye in a similar reaction mixture containing a known amount of a polynucleotide/polynucleotide hybrid to determine a relative rate of change in the optical property. The relative rate of change in the optical property of dye in the reaction mixture is correlated with the presence or amount of the specified target polynucleotide in the sample.

  • Patent number: 5024095
    Abstract: A method of diagnosis utilizing a diagnostic locator for detecting sources of electronic circuit malfunction caused by fractured solder connections or other kinetically locatable electronic circuit malfunctions comprises a diagnostic locator using kinetic energy at sonic frequencies which is discriminately applied to particular circuit areas to reveal mechanical intermittance on an accurate basis. The locator includes an elongated non-conductive test probe which is mounted within a housing at one end containing a transducer for kinetically activating the probe. An operator may adjust the kinetic energy being released at the probe tip for greater or lesser propagation upon electronic circuitry being diagnosed. This diagnosis of mechanically malfunctioning electronic circuitry is accomplished while monitoring the output of the circuitry in a conventional manner.
