  • Patent number: 10346731
    Abstract: Methods and systems for dynamically determining interchange fees. In an embodiment, an acquirer computer transmits a payment card account authorization request to a payment processing network, and receives an authorization response authorizing the transaction and comprising a spending history indication reflecting a compilation of spending history data of a group of payment card accounts that qualify for dynamic interchange rate setting.

  • Publication number: 20190177677
    Abstract: A microfluidic device for processing cells for the intracellular delivery of molecules or other cargo includes a plurality of microchannels disposed in a substrate or chip and fluidically coupled to an inlet configured to receive a solution containing the cells and the molecules or other cargo to be delivered intracellularly to the cells. Each of the plurality of microchannels has one or more constriction regions therein, wherein the constriction regions comprise an omniphobic, superhydrophilic, or superhydrophobic surface. In some embodiments, multiple microfluidic devices operating in parallel are used to process large numbers of cells. The device and method has particularly applicability to delivering gene-editing molecules intracellularly to cells.

  • Publication number: 20150221028
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer readable media for determining an interchange tier to apply to individual payment card accounts. In an embodiment, a payment card system operator computer establishes scoring rules and at least two interchange tiers to associate with payment card accounts, transmits the scoring rules to at least one issuer, receives payment card account data, and scores each of the plurality of individual payment card accounts, and scores each of the payment card accounts according to the scoring rules. The process also includes assigning an interchange tier to each of the plurality of individual payment card accounts in accordance with the scoring, and storing information indicating the interchange tier associated with each of the plurality of individual payment card accounts for use during purchase transactions in a tier and scoring database.

  • Publication number: 20130005611
    Abstract: The present invention overcomes the problems and disadvantages associated with prior art arrays by providing an array comprising a plurality of biological membrane microspots associated with a surface of a substrate that can be produced, used and stored, not in an aqueous environment, but in an environment exposed to air under ambient or controlled humidities. Preferably, the biological membrane microspots comprise a membrane bound protein. Most preferably, the membrane bound protein is a G-protein coupled receptor, an ion channel, a receptor serine/threonine kinase or a receptor tyrosine kinase.

  • Publication number: 20100088204
    Abstract: A method includes receiving transaction data associated with a payment transaction. The transaction data includes a payment account identifier. The payment account identifier identifies a payment account. The method further includes obtaining a spending history associated with the payment account identified by the payment account identifier. The spending history reflects a total amount of spending transactions charged to the payment account during a period of time. The method also includes providing an indication of the spending history to an acquirer.
