  • Patent number: 10515356
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present disclosure provides a system and associated processes for sharing cardholder data (CHD) between a merchant that utilizes tokenization and a second merchant that may or may not utilize tokenization. In one embodiment, the merchant, or an employee of the merchant, can use the system and associated processes to reacquire CHD from a tokenization provider system. In one embodiment, the merchant identifies to the tokenization provider system a desire to share CHD, which is associated with a token, with a second merchant. The merchant and/or the tokenization provider system can then invite the second merchant to register with the tokenization provider system. Once registered with the tokenization provider system, the second merchant can access any CHD that the merchant associated with the second merchant.

  • Publication number: 20190306275
    Abstract: A method for software development, installation, and management in a computer system may include: allowing first users to create components of applications; allowing second users, at a display of a web-browser-capable communications device, to build, edit, save, and compile new applications, using the components of the applications as end-user development tools, and to add the new applications to the library of applications; and allowing the second users, at the display of the web-browser-capable communications device, to download one or more of the new applications from the library of applications to mobile communications devices. When executed by the processor, the stored instructions control the computer system to perform functions that may include: connecting the mobile communications devices in a network using the downloaded one or more of the new applications; and causing information transfer to occur within the network that is independent of the processor of the computer system.

  • Patent number: 10385384
    Abstract: A method including (a) providing an amplification reagent including an array of sites, and a solution having different target nucleic acids; and (b) reacting the amplification reagent to produce amplification sites each having a clonal population of amplicons from a target nucleic acid from the solution. The reacting can include simultaneously transporting the nucleic acids to the sites at an average transport rate, and amplifying the nucleic acids that transport to the sites at an average amplification rate, wherein the average amplification rate exceeds the average transport rate. The reacting can include producing a first amplicon from a nucleic acid that transports to each of the sites, and producing subsequent amplicons from the nucleic acid or from the first amplicon, wherein the average rate at which the subsequent amplicons are generated exceeds the average rate at which the first amplicon is generated.

  • Publication number: 20190195252
    Abstract: A clamp for mounting a structure on a support. The clamp includes a fixed jaw, a base, and a moveable thruster plate between the fixed jaw and the base. The clamp includes a thruster cylinder configured to be rotatably received through the clamp body and having threads that engage a screw so that when the thruster cylinder rotates, the screw is advanced or retracted to move the thruster plate into and out of engagement with the support. A knob is used to rotate the thruster cylinder. The clamp includes a friction washer or collet located between the thruster cylinder and the clamp body. The clamp is configured so that when the thruster plate engages the support, further axial movement of the screw is prevented and further rotation of the knob and thruster cylinder compresses the friction washer or collet.
