  • Publication number: 20100029500
    Abstract: The present invention provides an oligonucleotide array capable of identifying genes and related pathways involved with the induction of a particular phenotype by a cell line, e.g., the genes and related pathways involved with the induction of transgene expression by the cell line. The invention is particularly useful when there is little or no information about the genome of the cell line being studied, because it provides methods for identifying consensus sequences for known and previously undiscovered genes, and for designing oligonucleotide probes to the identified consensus sequences. Additionally, when the array is to be used to determine optimal conditions for expression of a transgene by the cell line, the invention teaches methods of including oligonucleotide probes to transgene sequences in the array. The invention also provides methods of using the array to identify genes and related pathways involved with the induction of a particular cell line phenotype.

  • Patent number: 7068775
    Abstract: A system, including a method for prioritizing on hold calls connected to an automated telephone system is disclosed. The system and method utilizes customer information retrieved from a customer database as call prioritizing information for each connected call. The method begins by connecting a plurality of calls to the automated telephone system. Caller identifying information is obtained from each connected call and each connected call is placed on hold. Then, a customer database is searched and a customer database record is identified corresponding the obtained caller identifying information for each connected call. A call record for each connected call is created and inserted into the hold queue. Each call record includes the caller identifying information and call prioritizing information corresponding to the connected call. The connected calls are then directed to available agents based on the call prioritizing information stored in each call record in the hold queue.

  • Patent number: 6539538
    Abstract: An intelligent information router system comprising a telephony controller coupled to a private branch exchange through a link interface. The telephony controller may communicate with a handle manager and a script interpreter engine. The telephony controller may receive information from the link interface regarding telephone calls being placed to the private branch exchange. The telephony controller may initiate actions with the script interpreter engine that access information stored in a database through a database controller. In response to action of the script interpreter engine, the telephony controller may instruct the private branch exchange to route the call to an appropriate location within a company depending on the information received by the private branch exchange through automatic transmission of data or interaction with the calling party.

  • Patent number: 6330327
    Abstract: A system and method of retrieving customer records regardless of area code change affecting customer telephone numbers stored in customer records is provided. The method begins by providing an area code changes user interface on a system user display, which is configured to accept area code changes input by the system. Area code changes, which include actual area codes and old area codes are input using the interface. Next, each input area code change is stored in an area code changes memory. An ANI string corresponding to an incoming telephone call is then received and at least one customer record database is searched to identify any call records that include a telephone number corresponding to the ANI string. If no customer records are identified, then the area code changes memory is searched to identify if the ANI string includes an area code corresponding to an actual area code stored in the area code changes memory.

  • Patent number: 5426181
    Abstract: Pleiotropic pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF and IL-1, induce expression of a polypeptide molecule, termed TSG-14, in connective tissue cells. The TSG-14 polypeptide and functional derivatives thereof, DNA coding therefor, expression vehicles, such as a plasmids, and host cells transformed or transfected with the DNA molecule, and methods for producing the polypeptide and the DNA are provided. Antibodies specific for the TSG-14 polypeptide are disclosed, as is a method for detecting the presence of TSG-14 polypeptide in a biological sample, using the antibody or another molecule capable of binding to TSG-14 such as hyaluronic acid.

  • Patent number: 5029171
    Abstract: A test pattern data generator 16 may be made to create and generate all of the unique test vectors associated with it. These test vectors may have an arbitrarily selected programmable length 26(a-d) and may be generated in an arbitrarily selected programmable quantity 28(a-d). Furthermore, a unique test vector may be generated in a number of clock periods approximately equal to the number of shift registers (156, 158) contained in a scan or application interface unit 20. All these features are accomplished by initially placing a seed initialization value in the test pattern generator 16 and having the test pattern data generator cycle through a number of states, the second state of the test pattern generation being inputted to a seed register 12. The contents of the seed register 12 are used as the seed initialization value for the second test vector to be generated by the generator 16. This process is continued until all of the unique test vectors have been created.

  • Patent number: 5023875
    Abstract: A fault detection system 50 includes first and second serial data shift register stages 74, 94 which are connected to a logic circuit under test 106, and a third serial data shift register stage 84 which is logically connected between the first and second serial data sift register stages 74, 94. The fault detection system 50 permits all paths of the logic circuit under test 106 to be sensitized and allows for the detection of all propagation delay type faults at substantially the operational speed of the logic circuit under test 106.

  • Patent number: 4742293
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for testing for stuck- open faults in integrated circuits (10) having a plurality of combinational logic devices (18, 20). The apparatus includes a chain of shift register stages (22), with each stage including at least two latches (L1 and L3). The bits of an initialization test are shifted down the shift register and loaded into one of the latches (L3), while the bits of a detection test pattern are subsequently shifted down the chain and stored in the other latch (L1). A multiplexer (50) is provided for selecting one of the outputs from the two latches (L1, L3) so that the initialization test pattern and then the detection test pattern can be quickly applied to the combinational logic so as to minimize hazards which could invalidate the test results.
