  • Patent number: 10765832
    Abstract: The invention primarily is directed to a medical tubing adapted for insertion into a body tissue or cavity and method of manufacturing different variations of the tubing along a length of the tubing. The tubing comprises a plurality of individual, discrete, generally ring-shaped elements arranged in series and fused or bonded together forming a continuous tubular structure. The ring-shaped elements may include a combination of flexible and rigid ring-shaped elements assembled along different portions or sections of the tubular structure. In another aspect of the invention, the medical tubing may further comprise a secondary lumen and a pull wire to control the tubular structure. In another aspect of the invention, the ring-shaped elements may vary in diameter and/or composition in different portions or sections of the tubular structure.

  • Publication number: 20140246599
    Abstract: An apparatus for illuminating individual particles comprising a device for moving and directing air containing particles into a system, the system comprising an electrodynamic linear quadrupole section, an ultra-violet electromagnetic radiation source located along the electrodynamic linear quadrupole section, and a collection device for collecting the particles. A method of illuminating individual particles comprising moving and directing air containing particles into a system, controlling the air flow by using an air pump that continuously pulls or pushes air through the system, directing the particles into an electrodynamic linear quadrupole section, confining the particles to the central axis of the electrodynamic linear quadrupole section, illuminating the particles with ultra-violet electromagnetic radiation, interrogating the particles, and collecting the particles.
