  • Publication number: 20080052009
    Abstract: A method for quantifying fluorescent puncta comprising acquiring at least one first intensity distribution comprising fluorescence intensity values from a plurality of first fluorescent puncta; acquiring at least one second intensity distribution comprising fluorescence intensity values from a plurality of second fluorescent puncta, wherein each second fluorescent puncta has a determined number of fluorescent emitters; determining the relationship between the first and second intensity distributions; and fitting the second intensity distribution to the first intensity distribution to provide a count and distribution of the number of fluorescent emitters within the first fluorescent puncta.

  • Publication number: 20070037172
    Abstract: This document discloses, among other things, a method and system for a substrate having a bypass region for fluid flow. The substrate includes a plurality of fluid flow channels with each channel configured to concurrently allow fluid flow while precluding passage of a target particle or object.

  • Publication number: 20060262746
    Abstract: The flexible through-connection process, operational in a Mobile Switch Center, that provides support for allowing the call routing processor of the Mobile Switch Center to independently perform a through-connection/switch-connection based on different types of calls so that the Mobile Switch Center can make a through-connection at different stages of the outgoing call leg. In operation, the present flexible through-connection process includes in the call control processor of the switching system a new parameter in the existing inter-process message which is sent to the call routing processor at call setup time. The values supported for this new parameter will be pre-defined in the Mobile Switch Center and used by the call routing processor to determine when to perform through-connection/switch-connection for an outgoing call leg.

  • Publication number: 20050003411
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention employ complexly shaped, high-surface-area channels for separation and purification of molecules, including important biopolymers such as proteins, glycoproteins, polysaccharides, and other molecular components of living cells. The relatively large internal surface areas of the complexly shaped channels employed in embodiments of the present invention provide, in comparison to traditional, simply shaped separation channels, increased heat dissipation during electrokinetic separation, and a decreased tendency for bulk-solution flow. Heat dissipation prevents high temperatures that can denature proteins and that can induce thermal currents within the separation channel. Bulk-solution flow within a separation channel can overwhelm the generally linear, electrical-potential-induced migration of molecules that leads to efficient and well-resolved molecular separations.
