  • Publication number: 20190206273
    Abstract: iFormative Feedback (iFF) is an electronic formative feedback acquisition and analytics system which leverages mobile technology, QR codes, and web-based dashboards to provide users with meaningful, real-time, 360-degree assessments of performance, iFF is designed to record the spirit of a user's observations without increasing the administrative burden of data entry, security, collation, interpretation, and dissemination. Through iFF, organizations can efficiently track individual performance through downstream (supervisor to supervisee) and upstream (supervisee to supervisor) analyses of standardized observations recorded in the system.

  • Patent number: 8703497
    Abstract: A system and method for analyzing nucleic acids is presented herein. The system can include a nanowire assembly including a plurality of nanowires. In some embodiments, at least two nanowires can be coupled to a different probe corresponding to a different sequence version of a polymorphism. The system can include a reagent delivery system capable of delivering a template polymorphic nucleotide, an extension nucleic acid, and an enzyme to the nanowire assembly. The system can include an electrical detector configured to measure an electrical characteristic of the nanowire assembly and/or a controller in communication with the reagent delivery system. In some embodiments, the electrical detector can be configured to collect data corresponding to changes in the electrical characteristic in response to contact with the template polymorphic nucleotide, the extension nucleic acid, and the enzyme.
