  • Patent number: 10800091
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for smoothing a material having wrinkles. The material is positioned on a vacuum table having a group of segments.

  • Patent number: 10795901
    Abstract: The invention relates to a computer-implemented system and method for providing data services to a user via a best fit data matching application programming interface (API). The method may comprise exposing to the user, via the API, data services that are available electronically to the user. The data services are invoked with a query comprising a set of parameters. An automated query processing service is used to automatically analyze the parameters and match the parameters to a best electronic data source among a plurality of electronic data sources using a metadata store. The step of matching the parameters to the best electronic data source is based on a data quality metric, a date range and user permissions. The retrieved dataset, which is automatically presented to the user electronically via the API, can also be customized to include client-specific data elements.

  • Patent number: 10791119
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media, network traffic management apparatuses, and network traffic management systems that receive a request from a client to log into an application hosted by an application server. A determination is made when the client is authenticated in response to the request. Attribute(s) are extracted from the request, when the determining indicates that the client is authenticated. A first password is generated for the client. A record for the client stored at a global catalog server is identified based on the extracted attributes and the generated first password is injected into the identified record. Credential(s) including at least the generated first password are sent to the application hosted by the application server.

    Abstract: An article formed of a metal alloy is covered at least partially with a metal hydride and a shell metal to form an assembly. Load is applied to the assembly and the assembly is heated. The shell metal deforms around the article and the metal hydride and forms a gas proof seal. The metal hydride thermally decomposes to form hydrogen gas. At least a portion of the hydrogen gas dissociates and moves as monoatomic hydrogen into the article. The metal alloy can be a zirconium metal alloy, the metal hydride can be a zirconium metal hydride, and the shell metal can be substantially copper.

  • Publication number: 20200179595
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides improved methods for calibrating the zero position of at least one drive member of an injector system is disclosed. Automated methods of position calibration of the drive member of a fluid injector are disclosed. These methods address sources of error in positional accuracy and fluid delivery inaccuracies, such as disposable syringe tolerance and injector wear over time. According to other embodiments of the present disclosure, methods and fluid injector systems for determining and correcting for the amount of slack in a fluid injection apparatus are described. An understanding of the calibration and the amount of slack in a fluid injection system allows a processor to correct for the slack, thereby ensuring more accurate fluid delivery to the patient and more accurate imaging processes.

  • Publication number: 20200141858
    Abstract: Systems and methods for analyzing blood samples, and more specifically for performing a nucleated red blood cell (nRBC) analysis. The systems and methods screen a blood sample by means of fluorescence staining and a fluorescence triggering strategy, to identify nuclei-containing particles within the blood sample. As such, interference from unlysed red blood cells (RBCs) and fragments of lysed RBCs is substantially eliminated. The systems and methods also enable development of relatively milder reagent(s), suitable for assays of samples containing fragile white blood cells (WBCs). In one embodiment, the systems and methods include: (a) staining a blood sample with an exclusive cell membrane permeable fluorescent dye; (b) using a fluorescence trigger to screen the blood sample for nuclei-containing particles; and (c) using measurements of light scatter and fluorescence emission to distinguish nRBCs from WBCs.
