  • Publication number: 20200318175
    Abstract: A method for detecting a gene fusion includes amplifying a nucleic acid sample in the presence of primer pool to produce a plurality of amplicons. The primer pool includes primers targeting a plurality of exon-exon junctions of a driver gene. The amplicons correspond to the exon-exon junctions. The amplicons are sequenced and aligned to a reference sequence. The number of reads corresponding to each amplicon is normalized to give a normalized read count. A baseline correction is applied to the normalized read counts for the amplicons to form corrected read counts. A binary segmentation score is calculated for each corrected read count. A predicted breakpoint for the gene fusion is determined based on the amplicon index corresponding to the maximum absolute binary segmentation score. Gene fusion events may be detected in a partner agnostic manner, i.e. without prior knowledge of the specific fusion partner genes or specific breakpoint information.

  • Patent number: 10796053
    Abstract: A computer implemented system and method is provided for generating a layout of the cell defining a circuit component, the layout providing a layout pattern for a target process technology. The method comprises obtaining an archetype layout providing a valid layout pattern for the cell having regard to design rules of the target process technology, and receiving an input data file providing a process technology independent schematic of the circuit component for which the cell is to be generated. A schematic sizing operation is then performed on the input data file, having regard to both schematic constraints applicable to the target process technology and layout constraints derived from the archetype layout, in order to generate an output data file providing a process technology dependent schematic of the circuit component. A cell generation operation is then performed using the output data file and layout data determined from the archetype layout in order to generate the layout of the cell.

  • Publication number: 20200306393
    Abstract: A radioisotope elution system is provided, that has at least a component comprised in a cabinet and accessible via a door equipped with an authentication system to ensure safety. The system may also have a user interface equipped with an authentication system. It is also provided a radioisotope elution system that has a dose calibrator equipped with a lifting mechanism for lifting and/or lowering the vial to be tested in the dose calibrator. Advantageously, the lifting mechanism may be controlled for preventing the vial from being lifted during a quality control test on a sample of eluate in the vial. This feature prevents a user from tampering and/or interfering with the vial while a quality control testing is in progress. In another feature, there is provided a radioisotope elution system with a scanning system for entering information about the radioisotope generator and/or the patient in the system.
