  • Publication number: 20210060226
    Abstract: The disclosed subject matter relates to extracorporeal blood processing or other processing of fluids. Volumetric fluid balance, a required element of many such processes, may be achieved with multiple pumps or other proportioning or balancing devices which are to some extent independent of each other. This need may arise in treatments that involve multiple fluids. Safe and secure mechanisms to ensure fluid balance in such systems are described.

  • Publication number: 20210054498
    Abstract: Process for manufacturing a printhead for a 3D manufacturing system that uses metal electrodeposition to construct parts. The printhead may be constructed by depositing layers on top of a backplane that contains control and power circuits. Deposited layers may include insulating layers and an anode layer that contain deposition anodes that are in contact with the electrolyte to drive electrodeposition. Insulating layers may for example be constructed of silicon nitride or silicon dioxide; the anode layer may contain an insoluble conductive material such as platinum group metals and their associated oxides, highly doped semiconducting materials, and carbon based conductors. The anode layer may be deposited using chemical vapor deposition or physical vapor deposition. Alternatively in one or more embodiments the printhead may be constructed by manufacturing a separate anode plane component, and then bonding the anode plane to the backplane.

  • Publication number: 20210037383
    Abstract: Techniques for authenticating a mobile user device at a base station of a mobile network, and more specifically for implementing a distributed ledger based authentication that is shared by multiple base stations of the mobile network is provided. In one or more examples, the base stations of a mobile network can act as nodes in a distributed ledger system. A mobile device seeking to gain access to the mobile network can be provided a distributed ledger identification number by a base station. The distributed ledger identification number can be converted to a block of the distributed ledger, and then transmitted to the other base stations (i.e., nodes) that maintain the same distributed ledger. The mobile device can subsequently use the distributed ledger identification number for future access requests at either the same base station, or any of the other base stations that maintain the same distributed ledger.

  • Publication number: 20210033098
    Abstract: A fan, such as a ceiling fan, includes a learning mode of operation. This learning mode may permit a user to input a desired speed for the fan for a given condition, such as ambient temperature, and adjustments for other conditions would be automatically determined based on the user input. A subsequent selection of fan speed at that condition (such as, for example, for a different user) or a different condition setting would also be obtained, either during initialization or later, and then used as an updated measure of the desired fan speed for the condition. Related methods of controlling the operation of a fan are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210034906
    Abstract: In various examples, frames of a video may include a first visual object that may appear relative to a second visual object within a region of the frames. Once a relationship between the first visual object and the region is known, one or more operations may be performed on the relative region. For example, optical character recognition may be performed on the relative region where the relative region is known to contain textual information. As a result, the identification of the first visual object may serve as an anchor for determining the location of the relative region including the second visual object—thereby increasing accuracy and efficiency of the system while reducing run-time.

  • Publication number: 20210024292
    Abstract: A method of transferring an item between a motor vehicle and a locker can include extending an extension mechanism between a motor vehicle and a locker. The extension mechanism includes a conveyor system having an extension mechanism item carrying surface. The locker includes a conveyor system having a locker item carrying surface. The method assesses whether the motor vehicle is receiving an item from the locker, or transferring an item to the locker. When the item is to be transferred from the locker, the method positions the extension mechanism relative to the locker such that the extension mechanism item carrying surface is vertically lower than the locker item carrying surface. When the item is to be transferred from the motor vehicle, the method positions the extension mechanism relative to the locker such that the extension mechanism item carrying surface is vertically higher than the locker item carrying surface.

  • Patent number: 10890588
    Abstract: This invention is directed to methods for the facile and accurate identification of cancer cells in a tissue sample, such as a surgical field. In particular, the compositions and methods employ conjugates comprising pro-fluorescent fluorescein based moieties bound to folic or pteroic acid targeting moiety optionally through a linker. The pro-fluorescent fluorescein based moieties are non-fluorescent but capable of being rendered fluorescent by intracellular processes. The conjugates are employed to detect cancer cells that overexpress folic acid receptors thereby providing for differential accumulation of these conjugates in these cells.

  • Patent number: 10885250
    Abstract: Electronic design automation systems, methods, and media are presented for clock gate placement with data path awareness. One embodiment involves accessing a circuit design with a clock tree, clock gates, and an initial movement area. A set of positions for a set of data path connection points associated with the data routing lines are identified, along with an expansion direction from the initial placement position toward the set of positions for the set of data path connection points, and the initial movement is expanded to consider additional placement options for the clock gate based on the data path connection points.

  • Publication number: 20200408737
    Abstract: A microfluidic coagulation analysis method includes introducing a fluid sample into a measurement device including a pinch point that includes a microfluidic channel of substantially consistent width and height connecting a slot and a chamber. The at least one pinch point permits passage of the fluid sample from the slot to the chamber. The method further includes measuring, with a sensor in or near the pinch point, transits of individual cells in the sample passing through the at least one pinch point, and computing, at least in part with a processor, at least one metric indicative of a time period during which the flow of the sample transitions from substantially fluid flow to substantial cessation of flow.
