  • Publication number: 20210214779
    Abstract: A method for estimating a diagnostic score includes adding a first aliquot of a test sample to a first reaction vessel, and a second aliquot of the test sample to a second reaction vessel. The test sample includes a first target nucleic acid and a second target nucleic acid. The second target nucleic acid has a lower expected abundance than the first target nucleic acid. The second aliquot has a larger volume than the first aliquot. A first relative abundance value of the first target nucleic acid and a second relative abundance value of the second target nucleic acid are estimated by performing a first real-time quantitative isothermal amplification assay in the first reaction vessel, and performing a second real-time quantitative isothermal amplification assay in the second reaction vessel, respectively. The diagnostic score is estimated based on the first relative abundance value and the second relative abundance value.

  • Patent number: 9990187
    Abstract: A computing device executes analytic source code published to it. A revision definition includes source code in a first programming language compiled using a first compiler. When the source code compilation is successful, the source code is parsed to define code elements, an integration function is generated, the integration function is compiled with the source code using a second compiler in a second programming language to define an executable, an entry point address to the generated integration function is retrieved from the defined executable, an incremented revision number and the entry point address are stored in a created revision data structure, and the created revision data structure is stored in a created module context data structure. The integration function maps first input and output parameters of the source code in the second programming language to second input and output parameters of the source code in the first programming language.

  • Patent number: 9964101
    Abstract: A pumping apparatus for pumping a liquid from a source to a target including a motor and pump driven by the motor. The pumping apparatus further includes a support frame, a swivel platform pivotably mounted on the support frame and a drive assembly connected with the support frame and the swivel platform for pivoting the swivel platform with respect to the support frame, wherein pivoting of the swivel platform by the drive assembly changes an angle defined between a longitudinal axis of the motor and a longitudinal axis of the pump piston, and wherein a spacer is provided for limiting the range of the angle.

  • Publication number: 20160305412
    Abstract: A pumping apparatus for pumping a liquid from a source to a target including a motor and pump driven by the motor. Sacrificial zinc components are utilized to minimize corrosion due to chlorine vapors. Measures to ensure that liquid is pumped in only one direction include the use of a full wave rectifier and/or a spacer incorporated with a swivel platform to limits the range of the angle between the motor shaft and the pump piston. To minimize the risk of rupturing the pump, the pump piston includes a relieved portion in fluid communication with a transverse bore of the pump housing when the piston is axially inserted within the pump housing in its full forward position. To prevent overheating and damage to the pump components, the pumping apparatus makes use of a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) resistor interposed between the motor and a current source.
