  • Publication number: 20230405313
    Abstract: Devices, systems and methods are provided for delivering molecules, particularly small molecules and/or macromolecules, to cells within the body, particularly to target cells which directly therapeutically benefit from the functionality of the molecules. Example molecules include DNA plasmids, RNAs (e.g. messenger RNA (mRNA), small interfering RNA (siRNA), micro RNA), oligonucleotides, antisense oligonucleotides (ASO), proteins and/or materials which invoke genetic or epigenetic changes in the cellular behavior, to name a few. In such instances, the molecules are driven into the target cells with the use of pulsed electric fields (PEFs) which deliver the molecules through the cell wall of the target cells so that the desired genes are able to carry out the desired effect within the cells. Thus, the molecules are to be delivered to the desired location within the body at a desired time and in a desired concentration relative to the delivery of the pulsed electric fields for optimal outcomes.

  • Patent number: 11578002
    Abstract: Ceramic slurries may include ceramic particles, a photoreactive-photostable hybrid binder, and a photoinitiator. The photoreactive-photostable hybrid binder may include a photoreactive organic resin component, a photoreactive siloxane component, and one or more photostable siloxane components. Methods of forming a ceramic part may include curing a portion of a ceramic slurry by exposing the portion of the ceramic slurry to light to form a green ceramic part, and partially firing the green ceramic part to form a brown ceramic part. The brown ceramic part may be sintered at or above a sintering temperature of the ceramic particles to form a ceramic part, wherein sintering includes heating the brown ceramic part to a sufficient temperature to promote reaction bonding that converts silica from the photoreactive-photostable hybrid binder into silicates that bond with the ceramic particles.

  • Patent number: 11322275
    Abstract: A data cable is provided herewith, along with related methods. The disclosed data cables may meet the requirements for a UL 2196 flame test, including subsequent hose stream test. The disclosed data cables include two or more pairs of conductors wrapped with a flame-retardant tape and surrounded by low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) thermoset insulation. A shield may surround the conductor pairs and a non-halogen flame retardant polyolefin may surround the shield. In certain embodiments, the pairs of conductors present in the cable may have different lay lengths.

  • Publication number: 20220032585
    Abstract: A method of making a component of an electric machine using an additive manufacturing process is disclosed. The method includes forming a first lamina of a conductive material, building a first layer of a second material on a first surface of the first lamina, treating the second material on the first surface of the first lamina to define a first insulative layer, and building on the first insulative layer a second lamina of a conductive material. The steps can be repeated iteratively until a desired thickness or number of layers is reached.
