  • Publication number: 20240124550
    Abstract: A recombinant immune cell expresses a heterologous IgG Fc receptor. In some embodiments, the heterologous IgG Fc receptor can be a chimeric IgG Fc receptor. Generally, the chimeric IgG Fc receptor includes an extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular domain. The extracellular domain generally includes a sufficient portion of CD64 to bind to an IgG Fc region. The intracellular domain of the chimeric IgG Fc receptor includes a sufficient portion of an Fc receptor allowing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif (ITAM) to initiate cell signaling when an IgG Fc region binds to the extracellular domain.

  • Patent number: 11871237
    Abstract: In some examples, a system and method for pairing a payment object reader with a point-of-sale (POS) terminal is described herein. The method includes determining, by a wireless transceiver, a first value of signal strength corresponding to a current position of the payment object reader and a second value of signal strength corresponding to a new position of the payment object reader. The POS terminal then identifies the first wireless device as an intended candidate for pairing with the second wireless device based on variation in signal strength from the first value of signal strength to the second value of signal strength. Accordingly, the POS terminal establishes a wireless communication channel between the POS terminal and the payment object reader device for exchange of information. Once paired, the payment object reader allows the POS terminal to accept payments from a customer.

  • Publication number: 20230184576
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a pool condition monitoring device (50) comprising a hermetically sealable housing (52) having a floor (54) defining a lower external surface (56) of the housing. A sensing probe (60) depends from the lower external surface of the housing, for immersion in water (18) in the pool along a part of the length of the probe. An electronic circuit (7) and power source is within the housing, the electronic circuit including a telemetry device (120), suitable to connect the device to a remote system via a local area wireless network or a mobile telephone station. The sensing probe (60) is adapted to return a value to the electronic circuit depending on the degree of immersion of the probe in water, and thereby to indicate a fill level of the pool. The probe is sized to pass through a circular hole (40) of less than 3 cm in diameter in a lid (26) of a pool overspill sump (22), whereby the device can be supported by the lower external surface of the housing on the lid.

  • Patent number: PP34885
    Abstract: A new cultivar of Abelia named ‘Rhabpe22’ that is distinguishable by dense, compact and mounding plant habit and colorful variegated foliage. In spring and early summer, and in shade, the leaves of ‘Rhabpe22’ exhibit mid-green centers and contrasting cream-yellow margins. In summer to fall, the leaves of ‘Rhabpe22’ develop very dark green centers and Rhabpe22-orange margins. In combination, these characteristics. In combination these traits distinguish ‘Rhabpe22’ from all other varieties of Abelia known to the inventor.
