  • Patent number: 10486155
    Abstract: A microfluidic chip that can have a body defining a microfluidic network including a test volume, one or more ports, and one or more channels in fluid communication between the port(s) and the test volume is described. Gas can be removed from the test volume before a sample liquid is introduced therein by reducing pressure at a first one of the port(s), optionally while the liquid is disposed in the port. Liquid in the first port can be introduced into the test volume by increasing pressure at the first port. The microfluidic network can define one or more droplet-generating regions in which at least one of the channel(s) defines a constriction and/or two or more of the channels connect at a junction. Liquid flowing from the first port can pass through at least one of the droplet-generating region(s) and to the test volume.

  • Publication number: 20190344565
    Abstract: Maintenance routines that can be used to maintain the operability of one or more DOD print heads in a card processing system. The maintenance routines can include, but are not limited to: a cover routine where a cover or cap is selectively and automatically located over the print head(s) to protect the print head(s); a shake pulse routine that energizes the nozzles of the print head(s) without causing an ejection of ink; a spit routine where the nozzles of the print head(s) are energized to eject one or more drops of ink; and a purge routine where the nozzles are not electrically energized but the pressure holding the ink in the nozzles of the print head(s) is reversed to push ink out of the nozzles.

  • Publication number: 20190284899
    Abstract: A diverter assembly includes a tubing segment and one or more sleeve members disposed therein. The tubing segment includes apertures that are selectively alignable with apertures of an inner sleeve disposed within the tubing segment. The tubing segment includes a series of stops (e.g., shear pins) to arrest movement of the first sleeve within the bore of the tubing segment. A first one or more ball seats are included in the first sleeve such that deployment of a first ball and pressurization of the well above the first ball causes a first set of shear pins to fail, thereby allowing the first sleeve to slide downhole to cause apertures of the sleeve to align with apertures of the tubing segment, thereby causing fluid to flow to an annulus between the tubing segment and wellbore wall.

  • Publication number: 20190258977
    Abstract: An intermediate server synchronizes reporting data between a requestor computing device and an effector computing device. The server stores a plurality of event identifiers, and a plurality of reporting templates. Each template has a template identifier, and a mapping between a subset of the event identifiers and a set of reporting stages. The server, responsive to a production task request from the requestor device, obtains a selected templated identifier and generates a reporting data record for the production task request. The reporting data record includes fields for each stage defined by the selected template. After relaying the production task request to the effector device, the server receives reporting data from the effector device, containing values corresponding for a reported subset of the events. The server stores a portion of the values in the reporting data record according to the template; and transmits the reporting data record to the requestor device.
