  • Publication number: 20090204078
    Abstract: Disclosed is a manifold including a housing having multiple ports and multiple bores networking the ports. An actuatable valve, such as a slidable valve, including one or more bores may be positioned in the housing such that the valve is actuatable between a first position and a second position. Actuation of the valve may selectively establish a desired fluid pathway through the manifold. One or more seals may be interposed between the valve and the housing. The seal includes at least a first sealing element, a second sealing element, and a land extending between the sealing elements. The sealing elements are configured to provide a fluid tight seal between the housing and the valve when the valve is in either the first or second position, and the land is configured to provide a fluid tight seal between the housing and the valve when the valve is in an intermediate position.

  • Publication number: 20070298515
    Abstract: A peptide or protein microassay method and apparatus in which a wide variety of chromogenic or fluorogenic peptide or protein substrates of interest are individually suspended or dissolved in a hydrophilic carrier, with aliquots of each substrate being deposited in an array or microarray of reaction loci, or “dots.” Each dot, therefore, provides an individual reaction vessel containing the peptide or protein of interest, to which a biological sample may be applied for assay purposes. The sample is applied to the array or microarray of dots by one of a variety of focused sample application techniques, including aerosolizing or misting of the sample, or target application of the sample, onto each dot without creating fluid channels between the dots which would cause cross-contamination. In additional aspects, the present invention provides methods of transferring samples from an electrophoretic gel to a target plate for subsequent MALDI MS analysis.

  • Publication number: 20060128814
    Abstract: Photolytic cross-linkable polymers comprises three domains, a cationic domain, a cross-linkable domain and a photolabile domain. The photolytic cross-linkable polymers according to the current invention are useful in a method to complex and compact DNA and RNA for delivery to a living cell, wherein the DNA or RNA is released by photolytic degradation of a cross-linked polymer, which encapsulates the DNA or RNA in a nanoparticle.

  • Patent number: 6976974
    Abstract: A fluid control apparatus is disclosed for controlling fluid flow between a catheter, an injector, a saline supply, a waste dump and a contrast supply. The apparatus includes a valve stem movable within a cavity disposed in a valve body. The valve stem is movable to a plurality of positions including a contrast position where the valve stem provides communication between the injector and a contrast supply, a saline/waste position where the valve stem provides communication between the injector and a saline/waste line and an injection position where the valve stem provides communication between the injector and an outlet port connected to the catheter.

  • Patent number: 6918893
    Abstract: A fluid control valve is disclosed which, with a single valve, can manipulate flow between a saline supply, a contrast supply, a waste dump and a catheter. The control valve includes three primary positions including a contrast position where the valve provides communication between an injector and a contrast supply while isolating the saline supply and catheter. The valve also can be moved to a saline/waste position where the valve provides communication between the injector and the saline supply and/or the waste dump while isolating the contrast supply and catheter. The valve also can be moved to an injection position where the valve provides communication between the injector and the catheter. A single valve provides all three functions. The valve also may provide communication between a pressure transducer and catheter during the saline loading, waste dumping and contrast loading functions. The valve also provides protection or isolation of the pressure transducer during injection procedures.
