    Abstract: To form a layer separating two volumes of aqueous solution, there is used an apparatus comprising elements defining a chamber, the elements including a body of non-conductive material having formed therein at least one recess opening into the chamber, the recess containing an electrode. A pre-treatment coating of a hydrophobic fluid is applied to the body across the recess. Aqueous solution, having amphiphilic molecules added thereto, is flowed across the body to cover the recess so that aqueous solution is introduced into the recess from the chamber and a layer of the amphiphilic molecules forms across the recess separating a volume of aqueous solution introduced into the recess from the remaining volume of aqueous solution.

  • Patent number: 10160115
    Abstract: A management system (or controller) is configured to send commands to robotic components of different types (e.g., different command types, byte order types, etc.). Once configured, a translation component may be deployed to translate some commands to some robotic components that use a different command type than a native command type used by the management system. The management system uses a native byte order type to create commands, which may be big endian or little endian. While some of the robotic components (e.g., first robotic components) may also use the native byte order type, other robotic components (e.g., second robotic components) may use a non-native byte order type (in relation to the management system). For example, the native byte order type may be big endian while the non-native byte order type may be little endian, or vice versa.

  • Publication number: 20180143178
    Abstract: Arrangements are disclosed for measuring small electrical currents with high sensitivity, for example in the context of sensing molecular entities, for example via interactions between the molecular entities and a membrane protein inserted in an amphiphilic membrane. In one arrangement there is provided a current sensing circuit (52) configured to integrate the current output by a sensor element (56) during each of a plurality of sensing frames (62). In each sensing frame (62) first and second analogue samples of the integral are taken during first and second time windows (71,72). A readout circuit (54) processes the first and second analogue samples to output a digital output signal representing the current output by the sensor element (56). The processing comprises analogue to digital conversion processing and output processing. The output processing is performed exclusively during periods outside of the first and second time windows.
