  • Publication number: 20200080073
    Abstract: An electroporation apparatus and its novel chamber with inlet ports for mixing cells and exogenous material. The inlet ports are oriented in nonparallel to each other immediately adjacent at the same top comer of the first wall of the chamber. The mixing chamber comprises successive wall sections, two curved walls at its bottom; the first curved comer is on the same side of the chamber where the liquids enter the chamber, and directs the liquids to the second curved comer at the opposing side of the chamber, which in turn further redirects the mixing to the first curved corner. The direction of the liquid flow mixture change direction at least twice into the mixing chamber.

  • Publication number: 20190237314
    Abstract: The present invention comprises novel methods of continuously monitoring the performance of an atmospheric pressure ionization (API) system. The methods of the invention allow for improved quality monitoring of the processes that leads to the formation of ions at atmospheric pressure. The methods of the invention further allow for continuously monitoring for the quality of the ion formation process in API without the addition of extraneous material (such as labelled compounds or control known compounds) to the system being monitored.

  • Patent number: 5346474
    Abstract: Disclosed is a syringe assembly which greatly reduces the chances of an operator coming in contact with an infectious needle. The syringe assembly is initially provided with its needle retracted within its barrel, in a sterile and safe environment. When used, the needle is engaged by the plunger, and locked in place at the forward end of the syringe barrel. Before disposal, the needle is withdrawn back into the barrel, and the plunger is broken off. Thus, the disposed of syringe is incapable of being reused, and there is little or no danger of accidental punctures, because the needle is retained within the syringe barrel.
