  • Publication number: 20180154353
    Abstract: We describe assay modules (e.g., assay plates, cartridges, multi-well assay plates, reaction vessels, etc.), processes for their preparation, and method of their use for conducting assays. Reagents may be present in free form or supported on solid phases including the surfaces of compartments (e.g., chambers, channels, flow cells, wells, etc.) in the assay modules or the surface of colloids, beads, or other particulate supports. In particular, dry reagents can be incorporated into the compartments of these assay modules and reconstituted prior to their use in accordance with the assay methods. A desiccant material may be used to maintain and stabilize these reagents in a dry state.

  • Patent number: 5258293
    Abstract: An improved and highly productive method of continuously producing ethanol from lignocellulosic substrates is provided. The method involves providing a suitable microbial system within a reaction vessel and adding fermentable substrate to the reactor to form a reaction mixture. The fermentation reaction is allowed to proceed while a quiescent state is maintained within the reactor. During the fermentation, soluble substrate is differentially retained relative to the feed slurry and reaction biocatalysts are retained and internally recycled within the system. Further, while fermenting substrate is retained within the system, it forms a stratified zone within the reactor such that the concentration of actively fermenting substrate is highest at upper portions of the reaction zone and is lowest, near zero, at a lower portion of the reaction zone. Insoluble, fully reacted substrate may be withdrawn from a region near the bottom of the reactor.
