  • Publication number: 20040077091
    Abstract: A library of material samples is screened for properties such as permeability. A library of material samples is provided. A stimulus such as an exposure to a permeate fluid is provided to each member of the library.

  • Publication number: 20030218467
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for measurement of mass of small sample sizes. The method and apparatus is particularly adapted for providing microbalance measurement of solid materials as part of a combinatorial research program. The method and apparatus contemplate monitoring the response of a resonator holding a sample and correlating the response with mass change in the samples.

  • Patent number: 6650102
    Abstract: The present invention provides instruments and methods for screening combinatorial libraries that addresses many of the problems encountered when using conventional instruments. For example, the disclosed instruments can measure mechanical properties of library members in rapid serial or parallel test format, and can perform tests on small amounts of material, which are easily prepared or dispensed using art-disclosed liquid or solid handling techniques. Compared to conventional instruments, the disclosed instruments afford faster sample loading and unloading, for example, through the use of disposable libraries of material samples.

  • Publication number: 20030196896
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for screening separation media for performance in capillary electrophoresis. In one aspect the invention comprises concurrently loading a plurality of capillaries from one corresponding end of each with a respective plurality of separation media, adding a sample to each capillary, advancing the samples through the capillaries under an applied electric field, measuring a property of the samples or components thereof as they advance through the capillaries, and using the measured properties to identify one or more preferred sets of separation media. At least one of the steps of loading or advancing are carried out simultaneously over the plurality of capillaries.

  • Publication number: 20020029621
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for screening combinatorial libraries of materials by measuring the response of individual library members to mechanical perturbations is described. The apparatus generally includes a sample holder for containing the library members, an array of probes for mechanically perturbing individual library members, and an array of sensors for measuring the response of each of the library members to the mechanical perturbations. Library members undergoing screening make up a sample array, and individual library members constitute elements of the sample array that are confined to specific locations on the sample holder. During screening, the apparatus mechanically perturbs individual library members by displacing the sample array (sample holder) and the array of probes. Typically, all of the elements of the sample array are perturbed simultaneously, but the apparatus also can also perturb individual or groups of sample array elements sequentially.
