  • Patent number: 10922358
    Abstract: The invention relates to a computer-implemented system and method for analyzing unstructured data from a plurality of input files, and standardizing the data to a format that can be consumed by downstream systems. The method may comprise the steps of: receiving at least one input file to be analyzed, wherein the at least one input file includes the structured and unstructured data, splitting the at least one input file into a plurality of documents, classifying each page of the plurality of documents as one of structured or unstructured data, parsing the pages of the plurality of documents classified as unstructured data, extracting relevant data from the parsed pages, mapping each of the extracted relevant data to standardized output; and generating canonical data sets based on the standardized outputs.

  • Patent number: 10888021
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a computer enclosure with a first fan, a second fan, a fan controller, and an input for receiving a signal from a microphone indicating an amount of noise at a target location. The apparatus further includes a first actuator coupled to the first fan for adjusting an axial position of the first fan, wherein the controller controls the operation of the first actuator to position the first fan to reduce the noise indicated by the signal from the microphone with the first and second fans in operation. The microphone senses sound pressure and the controller automatically adjusts a position of one or more fans using an actuator to change the distance from the fan to the microphone, which may be co-located with a user, to provide destructive interference at the location of the microphone.

  • Publication number: 20200223913
    Abstract: Processes for producing and purifying recombinant proteins are disclosed. In particular, the present disclosure provides processes of producing and purifying multi-subunit proteins expressed in yeast or filamentous fungal cells. The production and/or purification of such proteins are monitored for impurities, preferably using lectin binding assays, such that one or more process parameters may be adjusted to maximize the amount of desired recombinant protein and minimize the amount of glycosylated impurities. The processes can also be monitored for other undesired product-associated impurities, such as aggregates and nucleic acids. In exemplary embodiments, the recombinant proteins are multi-subunit proteins, such as antibodies, the host cell is a yeast, such as Pichia pastoris, and the glycosylated impurity is a glycovariant of the desired recombinant polypeptide, such as an N-linked and/or O-linked glycovariant.
