  • Publication number: 20200277660
    Abstract: Embodiments provide detection systems and methods for detecting the presence of a nucleic acid in one or more samples. In a detection method, a sample and one or more nucleic acid probes are introduced into a channel. A first potential difference is applied across the length of the channel in a first direction, and a first electrical property value is detected. Subsequently, a second potential difference is applied across the length of the channel in a second opposite direction, and a second electrical property value is detected. Presence or absence of a nucleic acid in the channel is determined based on a comparison between the first and second electrical property values.

  • Patent number: 10686417
    Abstract: A modulator circuit includes a plurality of signal processing branches, each branch having a modulator for performing a delta-sigma modulation of a respective data stream portion in order to generate a modulated signal. The modulator circuit receives an input data stream having a carrier frequency; splits the input data stream into a plurality of data stream portions. Delta-sigma modulation is performed in each branch on a respective data stream portion. The respective modulated signals from each branch are combined to form an output signal for outputting at the carrier frequency.

  • Patent number: 10667938
    Abstract: An orthosis for increasing range of motion of a body joint. The orthosis includes a rotational linkage mechanism having a driving link and a driven link configured for rotation about a joint axis. The driven link is selectively attachable to a body part to rotate the body part about the joint axis. A dynamic force mechanism is operatively connected between the driving link and driven link to impart a dynamic force upon the driven link when the driving link rotates relative to the driven link and the driven link resists rotation with the driving link due to a resistance force imparted on the driven link by the body part reaching a maximum range of motion. The dynamic force is transferred through the driven link to the body part.
