  • Patent number: 10394815
    Abstract: A computing device is provided, comprising a processor configured to select at least one pair of columns. Each pair may include a source column of the first table and a target column of the second table. For each pair, the processor may detect that the columns contain data with different granularities. The processor may modify the data to have the same granularity, and may generate an example including an element from the source column and an element from the target column. For each example, the processor may programmatically generate a script that, when performed on the source column, produces a value consistent with the target column. For the script with output that meets a matching criterion, the processor may convey the output for display, and may, in response to a signal accepting the script, join the tables at least in part by performing the script on the source column.

  • Patent number: 10359423
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are devices and methods that use aqueous two phase systems and lateral flow assays to detect target analytes in a sample. These devices and methods may be used to diagnose a disease or condition in a biological sample, such as blood or serum. In addition, these devices and methods may be used to detect allergens in a food samples or contaminants, such as environmental toxins, in water samples. Device and kit components may be conveniently assembled in a portable container and are amenable to actuation in most settings. The devices are simple to use, requiring a non-trained operator to simply add the sample to the device. Conveniently, the time it takes to detect the target analyte is very short. Thus, the devices and methods disclosed herein provide novel and useful means for point-of-care.

  • Patent number: 7393680
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for penetration of lipid bilayer membranes in order to insert at the tip of a hollow needle-shaped object, such as a micropipet-, into a container formed of a lipid bilayer membrane, wherein said container is placed between said needle-shaped object, with the tip of said needle-shaped object placed in contact with said conainer in such a way that it applies a mechanical force to the lipid membrane of said container, thus mechanically straining it, and a second electrode, whereupon a transient electric pulse of 1-to-103 V/cm is applied between the electrodes, resulting in a focused electrical field over said container C which induces a dielectric breakdown of the lipid bilayer causing the needle-shaped object to penetrate the container. Disclosed is also an electroinjection method based on the above method, wherein substances are introduced through the needle-shaped object and into the container after penetration of the needle-shaped object.

  • Patent number: 7109034
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for permeabilization of a cell structure consisting of a single cell, an intracellular structure or an organelle comprising the following steps: (a) microelectrodes, preferably two carbon fiber electrodes or hollow fiber electrodes, are provided, (b) the microelectrodes are connected to a power supply, (c) the electrodes, individually controlled by high-graduation micromanipulators, are placed close to the cell structure at an appropriate inter-electrode distance, and (d) a highly focused electric field of a strength sufficient to obtain electroporation is applied between the electrodes. The method may be used in order to transfer cell impermeant solutes, such as drugs or genes, into the cell structure or out of the cell structure, in biosensors, in the treatment of tumours and neurodegenerative diseases and in the study of biophysical processes.
