  • Publication number: 20210316246
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to the design of a preconcentrator system for preconcentrating air samples. This preconcentrator system includes a plurality of preconcentrators that preconcentrate the air samples prior to chemical analysis, and a delivery structure comprising a manifold that selectively routes a sample airflow to the plurality of concentrators so that the plurality of preconcentrators receive a sample airflow concurrently or individually.

  • Publication number: 20200392448
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for monitoring cell density during cell expansion resulting from a cell culture process in a bioreactor comprising the steps of: a) cultivating cells in a bioreactor culture chamber according to a cell culture process having cell culture parameters; b) during said process, introducing cell culture fluid inputs and generating waste materials; c) determining the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and their chemical species in the waste materials; and d) estimating the density or population of cells in the bioreactor based on said determination.

  • Publication number: 20190137476
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to a technique for detecting Huanglongbing (HLB) infection in a citrus plant. This technique involves first gathering one or more samples of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emanating from the citrus plant. Next, a system measures VOCs in the gathered samples to determine a VOC profile for the citrus plant, wherein the VOC profile comprises measured values for a set of VOCs that comprise disease-specific biomarkers for HLB infection. Finally, the system determines an HLB infection status for the citrus plant by analyzing the VOC profile.
