  • Patent number: 11389748
    Abstract: Methods and systems for removing gases and/or pressure formed during the sterilization, e.g., the gamma irradiation, of prepacked chromatography systems (column plus attached tube and valve set) are described. The methods include purging the gas and/or pressure through specially designed tube and valve sets without breaching the sterility of the prepacked sterile chromatography system. The systems include a sterile or aseptic pre-packed chromatography column including a column having an inlet and an outlet, a tubing and valve set attached to the inlet and the outlet, and a pump configured to pump sterile or aseptic liquid from the fluid source along the tubing and valve set, into the column tube inlet and out of the column tube outlet along a first flow path, thereby removing any entrapped gas and/or pressure from the chamber.

  • Patent number: 9983420
    Abstract: In the optical device, a ring-resonator modulator, having an adjustable resonance (center) wavelength, optically couples an optical signal that includes the carrier wavelength from an input optical waveguide to an output optical waveguide. A monitoring mechanism in the optical device, which is optically coupled to the output optical waveguide, monitors a performance metric of an output optical signal from the output waveguide. For example, the monitoring mechanism may monitor: an average optical power associated with the output optical signal, and/or an amplitude of the output optical signal. Moreover, control logic in the optical device adjusts the resonance wavelength based on the monitored performance metric so that the performance metric is optimized.

  • Publication number: 20180039951
    Abstract: Implementations relate to computer-assisted agendas for videoconferences. In some implementations, a computer-implemented method includes receiving, at a device, scheduling input associated with a videoconference, where the scheduling input includes a time for the videoconference and one or more identifiers of one or more participants for the videoconference. In response to receiving the scheduling input, the method generates a record of the videoconference in storage, and determines an agenda for the videoconference including a plurality of agenda items. Each agenda item is associated with a respective time period in the videoconference, and at least one of the time periods is automatically determined. The method detects that the videoconference is in progress, and in response, causes output during the videoconference on one or more participating user devices connected to the videoconference, where the output is based on at least one of the agenda items.
