Patents by Inventor Daniel M. Ratner

Daniel M. Ratner has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210088535
    Abstract: Photonic devices, systems, and methods for detecting an analyte in a biological solution (e.g., whole blood) are provided. Representative photonic devices are optical ring resonators having nanoscale features and micron-sized diameters. Due to the compact size of these devices, many resonators can be disposed on a single substrate and tested simultaneously as a sample is passed over the devices. Typical analytes include blood cells, antibodies, and pathogens, as well as compounds indicative of the presence of blood cells or pathogens (e.g., serology). In certain embodiments, blood type can be determined through photonic sensing using a combination of direct detection of blood cells and serology. By combining the detection signals of multiple devices, the type of blood can be determined.

    Abstract: Provided herein are particles assemblies including a shell surrounding a core. The shell includes a particle-stabilizing random copolymer. The core includes a core random copolymer. The particle assemblies have a biomimetic design in which the polymeric components containing discrete chemical and biological functionalities are designed to spontaneously self-assemble into particles. Also provided herein are random copolymers having conjugated therapeutic agents that can be cleaved from the copolymers by an enzyme or water.

  • Patent number: 9518956
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for concentrating particles (e.g., bacteria, viruses, cells, and nucleic acids) suspended in a liquid. Electric-field-induced forces urge the particles towards a first electrode immersed in the liquid. When the particles are in close proximity to (e.g., in contact with) the first electrode, the electrode is withdrawn from the liquid and capillary forces formed between the withdrawing electrode and the surface of the liquid immobilize the particles on the electrode. Upon withdrawal of the electrode from the liquid, the portion of the electrode previously immersed in the liquid has particles immobilized on its surface.

  • Publication number: 20140235790
    Abstract: Provided herein are compositions and methods for intracellular delivery. The compositions are polymer compositions in which the polymer serves as a carrier for therapeutic and/or diagnostic agents. The polymer compositions are effective in targeted delivery of therapeutic and/or diagnostic agents to a cell. The polymer compositions include a targeting moiety that includes carbohydrate groups that effectively target specific cell surface receptors. The polymer compositions also include an agent binding moiety that effectively associates the therapeutic and/or diagnostic agent to be delivered to the cell.
