  • Publication number: 20200283823
    Abstract: Various approaches for generating long-distance contiguity information to facilitate contig assembly and phase determination are disclosed. Nucleic acids are assembled into complexes using binding moieties such that, when the nucleic acid backbones are cleaved, the ensuing fragments remain bound. Exposed ends are tagged and ligated either to one another or to tagging moieties such as oligo labels. Ligated junctions are sequenced, and the sequence information is used to assemble contigs into common scaffolds or to assign phase information. Various approaches to tagging the exposed ends are presented.

  • Patent number: 10639167
    Abstract: A spinal implant system includes bone growth promoting material, and an electrical bone growth stimulator. The electrical bone growth stimulator includes a mesh that surrounds at least a portion of the bone growth material, and the electrical bone growth stimulator is configured to conduct an electric current to stimulate tissue growth adjacent to the electrical bone growth stimulator.

  • Publication number: 20200085366
    Abstract: A system for assessing a spinal disorder includes a wearable electronic device having one or more sensors and an assessment system. The wearable electronic device is configured to be positioned on a portion of a lower back of a wearer, and the one or more sensors are configured to obtain patient data associated with the wearer. The system receives patient data from the one or more sensors, where the patient data includes movement data associated with movement of the lower back of the wearer, classifies the movement data into an initial grouping, further classifies the at least a portion of the movement data into one of the plurality of activity categories, generate a score corresponding to the at least a portion of the movement data based on the activity category to which the movement data is classified, and cause the score to be displayed via a client electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20200022735
    Abstract: A load sensing assembly for a spinal implant includes a set screw having a central opening that extends from a first end of the set screw toward a second end of the set screw. The second end of the set screw is configured to engage with an anchoring member. The load sensing assembly includes an antenna, an integrated circuit in communication with the antenna, where the integrated circuit is positioned within the central opening of the set screw, and a strain gauge in connection with the integrated circuit. The strain gauge is located within the central opening of the set screw in proximity to the second end of the set screw.

  • Patent number: 8790033
    Abstract: A painting apparatus comprising a paint module, an applicator assembly, and a dip-tube assembly containing a pump, the paint module having a container receiving section which is closeable by a releasably attachable lid, the applicator assembly being fluidly connectable to liquid in the container receiving section via the dip-tube assembly, in which the lid includes an aperture to allow the dip-tube assembly to pass therethrough and submerge the pump in the liquid (FIG. 1).

  • Publication number: 20070095057
    Abstract: An exhaust tip assembly including a cylindrical collar adapted to be secured to the distal end of a vehicular exhaust pipe and to extend beyond the distal end of the exhaust pipe. A rigid support structure is secured inside the collar and a turbine is rotatably coupled on the distal side of the rigid support structure. In a preferred embodiment, the turbine is concentric with the collar and has a fixed axial position adjacent the distal end of the cylindrical collar. It is also preferred for the turbine to form a plurality of vanes facing the distal end of the exhaust pipe such that exhaust gases pass over the vanes and cause the turbine to freely spin in one direction. It is further preferred if the turbine is free to continue spinning independent of exhaust gases continuing to exit the exhaust pipe through the collar.
