  • Publication number: 20180233323
    Abstract: A method of locating a substrate within a field of view of an imaging system includes acquiring an image of a first marker on a substrate in the field of view. The first marker has a first spatial pattern representing a position of the first marker relative to the substrate. The method also includes determining possible positions of the substrate based on the first spatial pattern and moving the substrate relative to the field of view based on the possible positions of the substrate. The method also includes acquiring an image of a second marker on the substrate in the field of view. The second marker has a second pattern representing a position of the second marker relative to the substrate. The method further includes determining the position of the substrate relative to the field of view based on the position of the second marker on the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20180171300
    Abstract: Formulations and methods are disclosed for the harvesting and subsequent passaging of human pluripotent stem cells without the use of enzymes and/or scraping to dislodge cells from cell culture vessels. The formulations and methods permit the harvesting of cells as large clusters from the surface of various cell culture vessels including multilayer cell culture vessels. Further, the formulations and methods provide high yields of harvested cells for subsequent passaging and high post-harvest cell viability. Pluripotent stem cells passaged with the formulations according to the methods remain undifferentiated and express typical stem cell markers, while, at the same time, they retain the differentiation capability and arc able to differentiate into the cells in all three germ layers and generate teratomas, even after numerous rounds of harvesting and passaging. These hPSCs also maintain normal karyotype after passaged with the formulations for extended period of time.

  • Patent number: 9982806
    Abstract: A tubular duct member comprises a plurality of sheet metal panels 10, 12 joined along adjacent longitudinal edges by cooperating folded sheet metal catches 14, 16, the catches being pushed together such that respective detent surfaces 28, 30 on each catch engage behind one another to retain the edges of the sheets together. One of the catches 14 includes a body 36 of resilient material compressed between the catches and biasing the catches apart to maintain the detent surfaces 28, 30 bearing against one another.

  • Publication number: 20180070843
    Abstract: In an aspect, a neurological data collecting apparatus is described. A plurality of electronically interconnected interface panels configured to selectively display stimuli and accept input is provided. An interface panel frame supports the plurality of interface panels and aggregates the plurality of interface panels into a user interface screen 6 that extends into the user's peripheral vision when the user is standing within a predetermined distance from the user interface screen. A supporting stand is connected to the user interface screen. The supporting stand includes a height adjustment mechanism for adjusting the height of the user interface screen to eye level of the user. A control unit electronically connects the user interface screen to a computer.
