  • Publication number: 20220228198
    Abstract: Methods for characterizing a population of microbes in a sample are described. The methods include: amplifying microbial polynucleotides obtained from the sample to form a plurality of amplicons and combining the amplicons with a plurality of microbeads, wherein each of the microbeads has a lanthanide spectral signature paired with the sequence of capture polynucleotides immobilized on the microbead. At least some of the capture polynucleotides comprise a sequence substantially complementary to a microbe-identifying sequence in one or more amplicons, such that at least some amplicons are captured onto beads by the capture polynucleotides and the microbe can be identified based on the lanthanide spectral signature of with which the capture polynucleotide is paired. Further described are methods for the identification of pathogens present in a sample by evaluating patterns of hybridization of a capture oligonucleotide to amplicons.

  • Publication number: 20220125450
    Abstract: An aspiration catheter for removing clot from a blood vessel includes a catheter body having a scaffold extending distally from a distal end of the body. An aspiration lumen runs from the distal end to a proximal end of the body, and a central clot-receiving passage in the scaffold is contiguous with the aspiration lumen of the catheter body. A vacuum-resistant membrane covers the scaffold and establishes a clot aspiration path from a distal end of the scaffold to a proximal end of the aspiration lumen, in the catheter body so that applying a vacuum to the proximal end of the aspiration lumen can draw clot into the central clot-receiving passage. The scaffold may have a comical configuration, a cylindrical configuration, or a combination thereof, and at least a distal portion of the scaffold is radially expandable from a delivery configuration to an extraction configuration.

  • Patent number: 10984042
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer program product for transforming RDF quads to relational views. The method commences by receiving a named graph, the named graph comprising at least one RDF quad, and analyzing the named graph to produce analysis metadata. The method uses the analysis metadata to generate relational views. The method further comprises publishing a relational view in the form of a SPARQL query. The quality of the results can be quantitatively measured and reported by calculating a goodness score based at least in part on aspects of the relational view definitions. Several variants for transformation include generating relational view definitions formed using a named-graph strict variant, or a named-graph relaxed variant, or a named-graph agnostic variant. The transformations can form outputs responsive to characteristics or properties such as a number of classes, a number of single-valued properties, a number of nullability properties, or a number of type-uniformed ranges.
