  • Patent number: 9339121
    Abstract: A system for monitoring inventory for scratch-off lottery tickets to simplify tracking inventory and aid in theft prevention. A computing device communicates with lockable metal ticket dispensers to maintain real-time inventory of product and display product inventory on the product dispensers. Dispensers log ticket inventory information and the identity of users associated with ticket dispensing.

  • Patent number: 8985672
    Abstract: Inflatable cover apparatus is disclosed in which a double-layer shroud is configured for encompassing a vehicle or other relatively large object. An inflatable chamber is defined by an inner layer and an outer layer of the shroud connected at their peripheries. A drawstring assembly encircles the periphery of the shroud and may be secured in a constricted state or released to an extended state. A blower adapted to inflate the inflatable chamber is capable of maintaining the shroud in an active inflated state in order to shield the covered object from being impacted by falling objects such as hail. A control module controls the blower and provides a communication circuit for enhancing control.

  • Publication number: 20140043162
    Abstract: A tobacco product display for monitoring inventory and aiding in theft prevention. A position sensor tracks the quantity of products on the display. A scanner, such as a barcode reader, tracks the identification of products removed from the display. A proximity and identity sensor detects authorized removal of products from the display and identifies persons removing the products. An alarm is triggered in the case of unauthorized product removal. Product inventory information is printed, sent to a network, computing device, smart phone, or similar device to alert authorized personnel of inventory reports and alarms.

  • Publication number: 20070037185
    Abstract: Methods of the invention include the application of fluorescent technology, total genome amplification, high throughput automated microsatellite fragment analysis, robotics, and novel computational methods. Computational methods include determining a microsatellite instability (MSI) phenotype (frequency and significance of MSI over multiple loci) using SP-PCR at higher than 0.5 genome equivalents (0.5 to 2 genome equivalents).
