  • Publication number: 20200332347
    Abstract: A system and method for target material capture, the method comprising: receiving a set of target cells into an array of wells defined at a surface plane of a substrate; receiving a set of particles into the array of wells, thereby co-capturing the set of target cells and the set of particles; achieving a desired state for the array of wells upon receiving a washing fluid into a cavity in communication with the array of wells; receiving a lysis buffer into the cavity; receiving a partitioning fluid into the cavity, thereby displacing the lysis buffer from the cavity and partitioning each of the array of wells from adjacent wells, at the surface plane; and retaining intercellular material of the set of target cells, individually with the set of particles within the array of wells.

  • Patent number: 10735397
    Abstract: Systems and methods for decentralized and asynchronous authentication flow between users, relying parties and identity providers. A trusted user agent application or digital lock box under a user's control may perform the functions of an authentication broker. In particular, the user agent application or digital lock box can accept relying party requests and respond with authentication and identity data previously obtained from an identity provider server, and without the involvement of a centralized broker server.

  • Publication number: 20200128898
    Abstract: An adjustable hat has a first attachment member and a strap connection member that cooperate to allow a strap to be easily connected and removed from the adjustable hat. The two elements may also be reversed with regard to construction and attachment to parts of the hat. The two members can be disengaged from one another without having to access them in the space formed by the hat and the band.

  • Publication number: 20190297116
    Abstract: Distribution and management of services in virtual environments is described herein. In one or more implementations, a service distribution and management model is implemented in which system services and applications are seamlessly distributed across multiple containers which each implement a different runtime environment. In one or more implementations, a system for distributing access to services in a host operating system of a computing device includes a host operating system configured to implement a host runtime environment, and one or more services implemented by the host operating system. The system further includes a service control manager configured to enable communication between a client stub of a service implemented in a client runtime environment and a service provider of the service that is implemented in a service runtime environment that is separate from the first client runtime environment.

  • Patent number: 10375111
    Abstract: Anonymous containers are discussed herein. An operating system running on a computing device, also referred to herein as a host operating system running on a host device, prevents an application from accessing personal information (e.g., user information or corporate information) by activating an anonymous container that is isolated from the host operating system. In order to create and activate the anonymous container, a container manager anonymizes the configuration and settings data of the host operating system, and injects the anonymous configuration and settings data into the anonymous container. Such anonymous configuration and settings data may include, by way of example and not limitation, application data, machine configuration data, and user settings data. The host operating system then allows the application to run in the anonymous container.

  • Publication number: 20190060107
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to a convective blanket that includes an air permeable upper sheet having a periphery. The convective blanket includes a lower sheet bonded to the upper sheet with a peripheral seal proximate to the periphery of the upper sheet to form an interior space therein between the upper and lower sheets. The convective blanket includes a wing portion partially surrounded by a portion of the peripheral seal and a body portion. Additional aspects relate to a system including the convective blanket and a method that uses the convective blanket.

  • Publication number: 20190004841
    Abstract: A device runs multiple virtual machines, each having an associated virtual machine memory in which programs can be loaded and run. Situations can arise in which multiple virtual machines desire access to the same portion of the same file. For example, each virtual machine may be running the same word processing program and thus request loading of the same executable file. A virtual machine manager monitors requests from the virtual machines to load portions of files that can be shared. When a request is received from a virtual machine to load a portion of a file that can be shared into memory, the virtual machine manager loads (if not previously loaded) the portion of the file into memory of the device and records a mapping from the location in virtual machine memory to the location in memory of the device where the portion is stored.

  • Patent number: 10169343
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a virtual storage system 200 may represent a file data set differently based on the activity being performed. The virtual storage system 200 may execute a runtime activity on a runtime format file 214 representing a file data set 212 on a virtual execution layer 220. The virtual storage system 200 may execute an interchange activity on an interchange format file 230 representing the file data set 232.
