  • Publication number: 20190324033
    Abstract: Generally, this disclosure relates to expression constructs that encode a reporter enzyme-affinity binding tag fusion protein that is produced after the construct is inserted into bacteriophage and the bacteriophage infects bacteria. In some embodiments, the fusion protein is captured and produces a detectable signal. Signal intensity may correlate with the number of bacterial cells in a fluid sample. Methods of detecting bacteria using the expression constructs, and microfluidic devices for detecting bacteria using the expression constructs are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10364477
    Abstract: Processes for producing continuous bulk forms of iron-silicon alloys and bulk forms produced thereby. Such a bulk form is continuous in a longitudinal direction thereof and has a continuous cross-sectional form transverse to the longitudinal direction. The bulk form is formed of an Fe—Si alloy and has a crystallographic texture that comprises <111> and {110} fibers that are inclined relative to the longitudinal direction. The bulk form may be produced by a process that includes deforming a solid body formed of an Fe—Si alloy with a cutting tool in a single step to continuously produce a continuous bulk form from material obtained from the solid body.

  • Publication number: 20190217005
    Abstract: A method for implanting a cardiac support device (CSD) on a patient's heart. An amount of contrast agent sufficient to cause structures on the heart to be visible upon fluoroscopic or other imaging is introduced into the pericardial space surrounding the heart. The heart and contrast agent are imaged to provide a visual indication of the location of the structures of the heart. The CSD is placed on the heart using the visual indications provided by the imaging.
