  • Publication number: 20240093136
    Abstract: A culture module is contemplated that allows the perfusion and optionally mechanical actuation of one or more microfluidic devices, such as organ-on-a-chip microfluidic devices comprising cells that mimic at least one function of an organ in the body. A method for pressure control is contemplated to allow the control of flow rate (while perfusing cells) despite limitations of common pressure regulators. The method for pressure control allows for perfusion of a microfluidic device, such as an organ on a chip microfluidic device comprising cells that mimic cells in an organ in the body, that is detachably linked with said assembly, so that fluid enters ports of the microfluidic device from a fluid reservoir, optionally without tubing, at a controllable flow rate.

  • Patent number: 11933268
    Abstract: A nacelle includes in turn a nacelle frame, and a yaw bearing having likewise/in turn at least a geared ring for providing a rotatable connection between the nacelle and the tower around a yaw axis. A method includes the steps of: a) disengaging the rotatable connection between the nacelle and the tower; b) lifting the nacelle from the tower by using lifting means, allowing the rotation of the geared ring; and c) rotating the geared ring around the yaw axis until the geared ring reaches a predetermined position with respect to the component to which the geared ring is connectable, either to the nacelle or the tower.

  • Publication number: 20240084235
    Abstract: An organomimetic device includes a microfluidic device that can be used to culture cells in its microfluidic channels. The organomimetic device can be part of dynamic system that can apply mechanical forces to the cells by modulating the microfluidic device and the flow of fluid through the microfluidic channels. The membrane in the organomimetic device can be modulated mechanically via pneumatic means and/or mechanical means. The organomimetic device can be manufactured by the fabrication of individual components separately, for example, as individual layers that can be subsequently laminated together.

  • Publication number: 20240068994
    Abstract: A device and method for real-time measurement using acoustic wave sensors, without the measurement being altered by environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, flow or pressure, and without requiring the use of external gauges. The proposed method and device improve the stability and detection limit of quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensors. The method and device are based on the high degree of correlation between acoustic resonators integrated into a single piezoelectric substrate. The use of a reference sample to correct the instability of the baseline is not required. The method and device are intended for the industrial sector of the production of measuring devices based on quartz crystals.

  • Patent number: 11875219
    Abstract: This invention provides a system and method for detecting and acquiring one or more in-focus images of one or more barcodes within the field of view of an imaging device. A measurement process measures depth-of-field of barcode detection. A plurality of nominal coarse focus settings of a variable lens allow sampling, in steps, of a lens adjustment range corresponding to allowable distances between the one or more barcodes and the image sensor, so that a step size of the sampling is less than a fraction of the depth-of-field of barcode detection. An acquisition process acquires a nominal coarse focus image for each nominal coarse focus setting. A barcode detection process detects one or more barcode-like regions and respective likelihoods. A fine focus process fine-adjusts, for each high-likelihood barcode, the variable lens near a location of the barcode-like regions. The process acquires an image for decoding using the fine adjusted setting.

  • Patent number: 11853845
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling a depth of field for a reader in a vision system includes a dual aperture assembly having an inner region and an outer region. A first light source can be used to generate a light beam associated with the inner region and a second light source can be used to generate a light beam associated with the outer region. The depth of field of the reader can be controlled by selecting one of the first light source and second light source to illuminate an object to acquire an image of the object. The selection of the first light source or the second light source can be based on at least one parameter of the vision system.

  • Patent number: 11845664
    Abstract: A process for the manufacturing of 3D reduced graphene oxide/Fe2O3 material includes the following steps: (i) putting in contact a graphene oxide (GO) water dispersion with an aqueous solution of iron(II) sulfate; (ii) hydrothermal treatment; and (iii) freezing the reaction product obtained in step (ii) at a temperature ??5° C.; and (iv) lyophilisation. A 3D reduced graphene oxide/Fe2O3 material is obtainable by the process and further relates to electrodes for CDI devices having the material. A method for removing ions from a fluid, like saline water, using the capacitive deionization device includes applying a voltage to the electrodes while supplying the fluid into the capacitive deionization device.
