  • Publication number: 20210037699
    Abstract: An agricultural planting implement includes a number of row units. The row units include one or more seed meters for receiving, singulating, and dispensing seed to the ground such that preferred spacing of subsequent seed is attained. A seed meter provides seeds one at time to a seed carrier, such as a brush wheel. The brush wheel may move the seeds one at a time to a seed conveyor by directly moving seeds along a curved portion of a seed disc in the seed meter. The seed conveyor may be a flighted belt, and the velocity of the seeds when transferred from the seed carrier may match the velocity of the flighted belt. The seed conveyor conveys the seeds to a position near the bottom of a furrow, and ejects the seeds with little or no horizontal velocity relative to the bottom of the furrow.

  • Patent number: 10912676
    Abstract: A delivery system is disclosed which can be used to deliver an ocular implant into a target location within the eye via an ab interno procedure. In some embodiments, the implant can provide fluid communication between the anterior chamber and the suprachoroidal or supraciliary space while in an implanted state. The delivery system can include a proximal handle component and a distal delivery component. In addition, the proximal handle component can include an actuator to control the release of the implant from the delivery component into the target location in the eye.

  • Publication number: 20200352155
    Abstract: Methods and systems of maintaining, evaluating, and providing therapy to a lung ex vivo. The methods and systems involve positioning the lung in an ex vivo perfusion circuit; circulating a perfusion fluid through the lung, the fluid entering the lung through a pulmonary artery interface and leaving the lung through a left atrial interface; and ventilating the lung by flowing a ventilation gas through a tracheal interface. Maintaining the lung for extended periods involves causing the lung to rebreath a captive volume of air, and reaching an equilibrium state between the perfusion fluid and the ventilation gas. Evaluating the gas exchange capability of the lung involves deoxygenating the perfusion fluid and measuring a time taken to reoxygenate the perfusion fluid by ventilating the lung with an oxygenation gas.

  • Publication number: 20200197218
    Abstract: Methods and devices for handling a fluid and delivering the fluid to the eye. The device has a vibrating element with a plurality of openings through which a fluid is ejected when the vibrated. An enclosure defines a chamber which holds a single application of the fluid. The enclosure may be biased against the vibrating element with a spring load developed in whole or part by the resilient structure of the enclosure. The chamber may be substantially empty after the single application.

  • Publication number: 20190365567
    Abstract: A system for extracting lens material from an eye including an instrument having a first aspiration pump driven by a drive mechanism having a motor, and an elongate member sized and configured to extend through an anterior chamber to a capsular bag of the eye. The elongate member configured to be oscillated by the drive mechanism includes an inner lumen fluidly coupled to the first aspiration pump and defining at least a portion of an aspiration waste line, and an open distal end having a distal cutting tip. The system can further include a fluid system remote from the surgical instrument including a second aspiration pump and a fluid line configured to deliver background aspiration from the second aspiration pump to the inner lumen of the elongate member to aspirate the lens material from the eye towards the inner lumen. Related devices, systems, and methods are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20190259472
    Abstract: The present invention comprises the capture and display of arthropod, human and arthropod-based metadata, which is capable of tracking and displaying the metadata, which is time and location-based, in order to show migration paths of arthropods and/or the diseases they have the potential to carry. This real-time view can help predict future arthropod and disease based on various scenarios such as, but not limited to: increased exposure based on the following: a user's geo-location, date and/or time of year, carrier type, etc. These variables can then assist with the education, awareness and potential prevention of disease.

  • Publication number: 20140323995
    Abstract: This disclosure relates generally to methods and devices for use in treating eye conditions. In some embodiments, a site-specific therapeutic agent is mixed with a releasing agent with a dual syringe apparatus in order to achieve homogeneity. Once mixed, the site-specific therapeutic agent and releasing agent can be either dispensed directly within an area of the eye or within an implant. The implant can be at least partially filled with the site-specific therapeutic agent and releasing agent either prior to or after implantation into the eye. Some ratios of site-specific therapeutic agents to releasing agents are disclosed which provide various releasing profiles of the site-specific therapeutic agent within the eye.
