  • Publication number: 20190350164
    Abstract: A system for milking multiple bovines simultaneously is disclosed herein. The system includes a rotary-platform, a platform-drive, a plurality of enclosures, and a plurality of automatic milking-machines. The rotary-platform is round, having a platform-center and a platform-edge. The platform-drive is able to rotate the rotary platform about the platform-center. The plurality of enclosures is affixed to and rest upon the rotary-platform and are arrayed radially around the platform-center near the platform-edge. Each of the plurality of enclosures has an entry on the side of the enclosure nearest to the platform-edge. Each of the plurality of enclosures are structured to contain a cow and may be accessed by a cow voluntarily at any time when the system is incorporated into a milking barn. The plurality of milking-machines corresponds to the enclosures, such that one milking-machine is next to each enclosure to milk a cow residing in the enclosure.

  • Patent number: 7588725
    Abstract: An auto-injection system provides high throughput screening of fluidic samples. A sample injection valve has a first position which applies a reduced pressure to a sample sipper tube for aspirating a fluidic sample into the sample sipper tube, and a second position which delivers the fluidic sample to a sample supply loop. A column control valve has a first position which delivers the fluidic sample from the sample supply loop to a sample chromatography column, and a second position which reverses direction of fluid flow through the sample chromatography column to deliver the fluidic sample to a sample analyzer. A wash control valve has a first position which supplies a wash buffer solution to the sample chromatography column in a forward fluid flow direction, and a second position which supplies elution solvent to flush the sample supply loop.

  • Publication number: 20050166305
    Abstract: The invention comprises a toilet seat that forms a hollow inside chamber that runs within the toilet seat. The bottom surface of the toilet seat also forms a plurality of linear, elongated louvers to allow a sweeping motion of air across the underside surface of the toilet seat and into the hollow inside chamber. These openings are oriented to establish a horizontal movement of the air inside the perimeter of the toilet seat to minimize the escape of odors from the toilet bowl. The toilet seat also forms a rear opening that a fan that withdraws air from the hollow inside chamber. The exhaust air passes through an odor adsorbing chamber adsorbing odors. The air is then expelled into the room back and downward, away from the user. Alternatively, the exhaust is channeled ventilation piping in the structure to be exhausted to the outside.

  • Publication number: 20050123970
    Abstract: A system for high throughput sample preparation and analysis. The system includes a chromatography column including an insoluble matrix. A fluidic circuit is capable of passing a fluid over the insoluble matrix in a first direction such that an analyte in the fluid binds to the insoluble matrix, and back-eluting an elution fluid over the insoluble matrix in a second direction opposite the first direction to output a sample that includes the analyte. A controller controls the fluidic circuit to periodically perform the steps of passing the fluid over the insoluble matrix and back-eluting the elution fluid over the insoluble matrix to output a plurality of samples at a periodic rate.

  • Publication number: 20040250684
    Abstract: Apparatus for removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air or other gas, which includes a vertical gas absorption reactor containing loosely packed mixing units submerged in a carbon dioxide absorbent liquid; gas to be treated is admitted at or near this base of the rector, is broken into small bubbles by the mixing units, and passes through the absorbent liquid to remove a high percentage of carbon dioxide; treated gas leaves from the top of the reactor, a regenerator associated with the reactor continually or intermittently regenerates the absorbent liquid and is arranged to receive absorbent liquid to be treated through an outlet from the reactor which is located higher up the wall of the reactor than the inlet for returning treated liquid to the reactor.

  • Publication number: 20030119193
    Abstract: A system and method for high throughput screening of fluid samples. A reduced pressure is applied, via an injection valve, to a sample aspiration tube. A first fluid and a second fluid are alternatively aspirated, via the sample aspiration tube, the first fluid for filling a sample loop with samples, the second fluid for flushing the sample aspiration tube. Excess fluid aspirated from the first fluid source and all fluid aspirated from the second fluid source is captured in an inline trap.

  • Publication number: 20020001544
    Abstract: A method for high throughput processing of a plurality of droplets. The droplets are dispensed onto a moving surface and delayed in a delay line in which the droplets hang from the moving surface for at least a specified minimum period of time. A laminate may be spooled onto the moving surface and each droplet may be dispensed onto the laminate. At least one operation is performed on each droplet from the group of operations consisting of mixing, diluting, concentration, heating, cooling, humidifying, filtering, and analyzing. The laminate may then, in certain embodiments, be spooled off the moving surface, processed, and reused.
