  • Publication number: 20160019557
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer readable media for facilitating machine-to-machine communication and consumer-to-machine communications are disclosed. Systems include a distributed interstitial platform configured to provide one or more application programming interfaces for the creation of first and second “inverse facing” applications. The platform may allow for receiving of instructions, such as from an end user, at the first application. The platform may allow for the instructions to be processed by a machine integrated with the second application. These instructions may thus be used to operate the machine or device. The distributed interstitial platform may then track the use of first and second created applications for revenue generation.

  • Publication number: 20150301805
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer readable media for facilitating machine-to-machine and consumer-to-machine communications and workflows are disclosed. Systems include a distributed interstitial platform configured to provide one or more Domain Extensible Languages for the creation of first and second “inverse facing” widgets and a third workflow/process widget. The platform may allow for receiving of instructions, such as from an end user, at the first widget. The platform may allow for the instructions to be processed by the third widget and the machine interactions to be implemented by the second widget integrated with the machine. These instructions may thus be used to operate the machine or device.

  • Publication number: 20090012466
    Abstract: A method for inhibiting adverse reaction of the contents of a prefilled container during a radiation sterilization procedure is disclosed. In the method, a container which is made of a material including a radiation stable polyolefin is prefilled with a medium prior to being subjected to a gamma irradiation sterilization treatment. By using a radiation stable polyolefin material as the container, such as a polyolefin with a radiation stabilizer additive, and by prefilling the container prior to the gamma irradiation treatment, the container can be effectively sterilized without adversely affecting its contents.

  • Patent number: 7332227
    Abstract: A non-volatile lubricious coating composition is provided for use with medical devices, such as hypodermic needles, catheters, and the like. The coating composition includes a first siloxane polymer having a very low viscosity less than about 50 centistokes, a second siloxane polymer having a high viscosity greater than about 1,000 centistokes, a reactive silicone polymer which is capable of crosslinking upon exposure to radiation, such as a UV curable silicone acrylate, and a photoinitiator to accelerate cross-linking of the reactive silicone polymer. The coating composition may further include an aminofunctional siloxane polymer to promote adhesion to metal surfaces when used with needles. The coating composition provides flowability without the need for any volatile organic solvent, and is capable of curing to provide adhesion and lubricity.
