  • Publication number: 20190251411
    Abstract: A device comprising a physical support and an electronic chip supported by the support and comprising a memory module and a processor configured to implement a computer program configured to produce a result from data. The device further comprises a display module configured to display the result and a radio antenna configured to receive at least one electromagnetic signal configured to electrically supply the display module. The data comprises at least one item of static data, stored in a non-transient memory and an item of dynamic data, circulating in a transient memory. The dynamic data is received by the device through the at least one electromagnetic signal and the at least one electromagnetic signal is received by the device from at least one communication device.

  • Patent number: 9046483
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for characterizing a target polynucleic acid by providing a surface containing a channel of a dimension sufficient to allow sequential monomer-by-monomer passage of a single-stranded polynucleic acid, but not of a double-stranded polynucleic acid; providing a source of hybridized target polynucleic acid at the surface; inducing passage of the target polynucleic acid through the channel, whereby the target polynucleic acid undergoes base pair separation (melts) prior to its passage; and making one or more measurements over time as the target polynucleic acid moves relative to the channel yielding data suitable to determine a monomer-dependent characteristic of the target polynucleic acid.

  • Patent number: 6673615
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for detecting a double-stranded region in a nucleic acid by (1) providing two separate, adjacent pools of a medium and a interface between the two pools, the interface having a channel so dimensioned as to allow sequential monomer-by-monomer passage of a single-stranded nucleic acid, but not of a double-stranded nucleic acid, from one pool to the other pool; (2) placing a nucleic acid polymer in one of the two pools; and (3) taking measurements as each of the nucleotide monomers of the single-stranded nucleic acid polymer passes through the channel so as to differentiate between nucleotide monomers that are hybridized to another nucleotide monomer before entering the channel and nucleotide monomers that are not hybridized to another nucleotide monomer before entering the channel.
