  • Patent number: 11151529
    Abstract: Methods and systems for retaining credit card usage through systematic recognition of recurring payments are described. In some embodiments, a method includes receiving user transaction data relating to a payment instrument issued to a user. The user transaction data may include payees and a schedule of payments to the payees. The method may further include identifying recurring payees based on a category of each of the payees. In response to a triggering event requiring an account update of the payment instrument, a report identifying the recurring payees may be generated for the user.

  • Patent number: 10853796
    Abstract: Techniques are described for automatically presenting workflow(s) in an application based at least partly on detected signal(s). A radio-frequency signal may be emitted from a transceiver included in, attached to, or otherwise associated with a payment card. The signal may be received by a transceiver of a user device when the card is in proximity to the device and, in response, an application may launch a workflow including one or more pages of content in the application. The launched workflow may include functionality for activating a payment card, based on a determination that the card is not yet activated. The launched workflow may also include functionality for viewing account information, based on a determination that the card is already activated.

  • Publication number: 20090002716
    Abstract: An apparatus for assessing topology of a surface of a target. The apparatus includes an optical source for generating a probe laser beam. The apparatus also includes means for scanning the probe laser beam across at least a portion of the surface of the target. The apparatus further includes a beamsplitter for redirecting a return signal toward means for detecting the return signal in a substantially quadrature condition, the return signal resulting from reflection of the probe laser beam off the surface of the target. A quadrature interferometric method for determining the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample. The method comprises generating a laser probe beam having a wavelength ? and a waist wo to probe at least a portion of a substrate having a reflecting surface that has been exposed to the sample.

  • Publication number: 20070212257
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for use with a probe beam and detector for detecting the presence of a target analyte in a sample. The apparatus includes a substrate; and a biolayer located on the substrate designed to react to target analyte when the sample is deposited on the biolayer. The substrate can be selected to substantially minimize reflectance by the substrate while substantially maintaining scattering by the target analyte. The substrate can be designed so waves reflected by the substrate are substantially in quadrature with waves scattered by target analyte; or so waves reflected by the substrate and scattered by target analyte interfere in the far field and directly create intensity modulation detectable by the detector. The biolayer can include a plurality of spots, and the spots can be grouped into unit cells having specific antibodies and non-specific antibodies for reacting with target analyte.

  • Publication number: 20070023643
    Abstract: A method of probing a plurality of analyzer molecules distributed about a detection platform is disclosed. The method includes contacting a test sample to the plurality of analyzer molecules, scanning the plurality of analyzer molecules at a rate relating to a carrier frequency signal, and detecting the presence or absence of a biological molecule based at least in part upon the presence or absence of a signal substantially at a sideband of the carrier frequency signal. A molecule detection platform including a substrate and a plurality of targets positioned about the substrate is also disclosed. Specific analyzer molecules adapted to bind a specific analyte are immobilized about a first set of the targets. Nonspecific analyzer molecules are immobilized about a second set of the targets. The targets positioned about the substrate along at least a segment of a scanning pathway alternate between at least one of the first set and at least one of the second set.

  • Publication number: 20070003436
    Abstract: A phase contrast quadrature interferometric method for determining the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample. The method comprises using a laser beam having a wavelength ? and a waist wo to probe at least a portion of a substrate having a reflecting surface that has been exposed to the sample. The reflecting surface includes at least a first region having a layer of recognition molecules specific to the target analyte and a second region that does not include a layer of recognition molecules specific to the target analyte. The method further comprises measuring a time dependent intensity on a photodetector of a substantially only first quadrature at one of a pair of quadrature angles ?q of a reflected diffraction signal of the probe beam while probing the first region and the second region. An apparatus for phase-contrast quadrature interferometric detection of the presence or absence of a target molecule on a planar array, comprises a laser source for generating a probe beam.
