  • Publication number: 20210341360
    Abstract: A point-of-care diagnostic system that includes a cartridge and a reader. The cartridge can contain a patient sample, such as a blood sample. The cartridge is inserted into the reader and the patient sample is analyzed. The sample can be processed for data collection and analysis to provide interpretative results indicative of a disorder, condition, disease and/or infection of the patient. Processing can include external sonication and conjugating non-magnetic target material with magnetic nanoparticles and non-magnetic solids.

  • Patent number: 10938332
    Abstract: A control system that includes a converter circuit and a control device is disclosed. The converter circuit may be configured to control a phase current of a switched reluctance machine. The control device may be configured to determine an estimated flux based on a bus voltage, a phase voltage, and a mutual voltage. The control device may be configured to determine a flux threshold based on the phase current, and determine a first limit and a second limit relative to the flux threshold. The first limit and the second limit may be scaled relative to the flux threshold based on one or more of the target speed, the load demand, or the bus voltage. The control device may be configured to compare the estimated flux with the first limit, and reset the estimated flux to the second limit based on determining that the estimated flux satisfies the first limit.

  • Patent number: 10705081
    Abstract: Methods and compositions for the detection and quantitative measurement of biomarkers and other target analytes by determining impedance in bodily fluid samples and/or environmental samples using compositions comprising a base substrate with electrodes, a nanoporous membrane placed on top of the nanoporous membrane, O-rings placed on top of the nanoporous membrane and a manifold placed on top of the O-rings. Such a composition may be placed in a testing platform to ensure the application of constant, repeatable pressure to the composition.
