  • Patent number: 10519434
    Abstract: Collection devices and kits for biological sample collection include a biologic sample collection device having a hydrophilic swab matrix that includes a modified polycaprolactone (PCL). Methods of production and use thereof are also described herein. The biologic sample collection devices, kits and methods described herein are used to collect a biologic sample (e.g., blood, buccal cells, etc.) and to enable extraction of nucleic acids (e.g., DNA) from that biologic sample so that the nucleic acids can be analyzed (e.g., sequencing and subsequent analyses of DNA).

  • Publication number: 20190357442
    Abstract: An agricultural baler including a baling chamber and a pre-compression chamber, the baling chamber including at least one movable wall. The agricultural baler further includes multiple sensors and a controller adapted for controlling operation of the agricultural baler based on inputs of the multiple sensors, wherein a first subset of the multiple sensors is related to a first feature and a second subset of the multiple sensors is related to a second feature. The controller is configured to control the operation of the agricultural baler in a first time period until the first feature is within a first predetermined range, and to control the operation of the agricultural baler in a subsequent time period, until the second feature is within a second predetermined range.

  • Publication number: 20190133046
    Abstract: An agricultural baler including a bale case, a plunger, a duct, and a stuffer unit, operably associated with the duct. The stuffer unit includes a fork assembly including tines, a drive mechanism acting on the fork assembly, and a clutch arrangement for selective coupling the drive mechanism to a power source of the baler. The clutch arrangement includes a selectively operable dog clutch including a driving clutch member and a driven clutch member. The driving and the driven clutch member are configured for selectively engaging each other in one direction of rotation of the driving clutch member relative to the driven clutch member. The clutch arrangement furthermore includes an overrunning clutch associated with the driving clutch member and the driven clutch member.
