  • Publication number: 20190308191
    Abstract: Provided are devices for automated analysis of one or more samples in single or multi-well plates or vessels, wherein the process of automated analysis comprises automated flow, wherein the samples comprise liquid or particles in a sample vessel, and wherein the devices comprise an assembly of components that enable processing of a sample for analytical assessment by fluidic and/or particle based instruments. Automated flow may comprise systems for moving samples including vacuum systems, pressure-based systems, pneumatic systems, pumps, peristaltic pumps, diaphragms, or syringes. The devices may comprise an assembly of components that enable movement in X, Y, and Z dimensions, as well as switches, microfluidic tubing, well plate block, electronic pressure controllers, pneumatic or fluidic mixing devices, components for fluid handling, sampling vessels, and mechanical components for translating or transporting system components.

  • Publication number: 20190195773
    Abstract: A microfluidic chip configuration wherein injection occurs in an upwards vertical direction, and fluid vessels are located below the chip in order to minimize particle settling before and at the analysis portion of the chip's channels. The input and fluid flow up through the bottom of the chip, in one aspect using a manifold, which avoids orthogonal re-orientation of fluid dynamics. The contents of the vial are located below the chip and pumped upwards and vertically directly into the first channel of the chip. A long channel extends from the bottom of the chip to near the top of the chip. Then the channel takes a short horizontal turn that nearly negates any influence of cell settling due to gravity and zero flow velocity at the walls. The fluid is pumped up to a horizontal analysis portion that is the highest channel/fluidic point in the chip and thus close to the top of the chip, which results in clearer imaging.

  • Patent number: 10313379
    Abstract: The disclosed computer-implemented method for making security-related predictions may include (i) gathering information that comprises both signatures of events that occurred on computing systems during consecutive time slots and incident labels about incidents on the computing systems during the consecutive time slots, (ii) using the gathered information to train a machine learning model, (iii) predicting, by the machine learning model, at least one of an incident label about an incident and a signature of an event on a computing system during a time slot, wherein the computing system does not comprise at least one of an application capable of generating the signature and information about events occurring during the time slot due to the time slot having not yet occurred, and (iv) performing an action in response to the prediction. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20180108082
    Abstract: A method for conducting an online auction conducts, by an online auction system, the online auction to generate a final online auction bid. The online auction system determines whether to generate a counterbid offer responsive to first data relating to a seller and second data relating to a buyer providing the final online auction bid. The online auction system then completes the sale of the vehicle responsive to the determination to generate the counterbid offer.

  • Publication number: 20170221074
    Abstract: A system for vehicle title reassignment for vehicles has first and second tables of qualification. The first table defines a definable set of rules for selecting a state to retitle a vehicle responsive to a plurality of input parameters. The second table defines a second definable set of rules for selecting a title brand to retitle the vehicle responsive to the plurality of input parameters. A processor includes an instruction set for configuring the processor to perform a variety of actions. The set of instructions further define an application program interface and automated title system processing logic. The application program interface receives a plurality of input parameters related to at least one vehicle. The plurality of input parameters include at least a total loss decision parameter and a severity of damage rating parameter.

  • Patent number: 9677738
    Abstract: An optical device for transforming an input light distribution from an LED light source to provide an omni-directional output light distribution for solid-state lighting is disclosed. The optical device has a conical form, comprising first and second coaxial cones of different refractive index, defined by coaxial inner and outer cone surfaces, which converge from a cone base to a rounded tip at the apex. Preferably, each of the inner and outer cone surfaces comprises a plurality of conical facets defining a grating structure. The inner cone, i.e. air cavity, is directly coupled to an LED emitter area. Cone angles and spacings of conical facets, defining inner and outer gratings, are tailored to reshape a predetermined input light distribution. Apertures assist in heat dissipation. A lightweight, compact device with high transmission efficiency can be manufactured at low cost by one-step injection molding from an optical-grade polymer, such as PMMA.
