  • Patent number: 10212029
    Abstract: Techniques for provisioning cloud services in cloud computing systems are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method can include providing a user portal configured to communicate with a deployment application configured by a user for provisioning cloud services in the cloud computing system. The method can also include receiving a notification from the user-configured deployment application that a provisioning process is initiated for a cloud service in the cloud computing system. In response to receiving the notification, the method can include assigning a distinct provisioning identifier to the initiated provisioning process associated with the notification and causing an output field associated with the distinct provisioning identifier to be displayed on the user portal. Subsequently, messages of status updates can be forwarded to the status display according to the assigned distinct provisioning identifier.

  • Publication number: 20040033623
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for detecting a target antigen in a fluid sample of an individual. In preferred embodiments, the fluid sample is urine, cerebral spinal fluid, or synovial fluid. After an optional concentration step, the fluid sample is passed through a membrane suitable for binding the target antigen, thereby binding the target antigen to the membrane. Target antigen, bound to the membrane, is then detected using an antibody specific to the target antigen.
