  • Publication number: 20200080991
    Abstract: Provided herein are screening methods that utilize transgenic nematodes exposed to heat shock conditions, such as agents that increase stability of F-actin. The transgenic nematodes used can be in a wild-type background, functionally deleted for OSG-1, or express human ARHGEF10 in an OSG-1 background. Such transgenic nematodes also express a fluorescent protein, such as GFP. Such methods are in some examples high throughput and automated. Also provided are recombinant nematodes and kits that can be used with such methods.

  • Publication number: 20200073866
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to a method for storing and time-correlating real-time and queryable test results of a test of a device under test (DUT). The method includes initiating the test applied to the DUT to collect real-time data from a multitude of data streams for multiple aspects of the DUT, the collected data including counters and fact-type values, the collected data having imperfectly synchronized time bases and the collected data being collected from different sources asynchronously at different times, specifying a recording time interval for recording the data collected among multiple databases, recording data according to the specified recording time interval, such that each piece of the recorded data is associated with a particular time interval, and at a conclusion of the test, correlating the recorded data with the test configuration data about a test state in the respective time intervals.

  • Patent number: 10285686
    Abstract: Methods and devices for repairing a cardiac valve. A minimally invasive procedure includes creating an access in the apex region of the heart through which one or more instruments may be inserted. The device can implant artificial heart valve chordae tendineae into cardiac valve leaflet tissues to restore proper leaflet function and prevent reperfusion. The device punctures the apex of the heart and travels through the ventricle. The tip of the device rests on the defective valve and punctures the valve leaflet. A suture or a suture/guide wire combination is inserted, securing the top of the leaflet to the apex of the heart. A resilient element or shock absorber mechanism adjacent to the outside of the apex of the heart minimizes the linear travel of the device in response to the beating of the heart or opening/closing of the valve.
