  • Patent number: 11994528
    Abstract: Purifying target biomolecules, such as nucleic acids or proteins, from a biological source is a time intensive process and is typically performed by a skilled technician or scientist owing to the highly technical nature of the work. Systems, devices, and methods disclosed herein enable the automated bioprocessing and purification of target biomolecules from a biological source. For example, an instrument and disposable cartridge are provided for automatedly isolating and purifying nucleic acids (such as plasmid DNA from a bacterial culture) or for isolating protein from any biological sample. Such an exemplary instrument and cartridge can work in concert to timely release, mix, and move the target biomolecule and various reagents and buffers through a target biomolecule purification process, resulting in a purified target biomolecule with less manual oversight than traditional approaches.

  • Patent number: 11966629
    Abstract: A distributed data storage system can be configured with a host connected to a first device and an initialization module that performs a default initialization procedure on the first device in response to detecting the first device has an unknown manufacturing origin. Conducting the default initialization procedure may allow the first device to service data access requests from the host. In response to the connection of a second device to the host and initialization module, a manufacturing origin of the second device is identified with the initialization module before the initialization module customizes the default initialization procedure to a custom procedure that is executed to allow the second device to satisfy a background operation prescribed by the initialization module.

  • Publication number: 20230418507
    Abstract: A distributed data storage system may connect a host to a device and a dedication module. The dedication module can identify a manufacturing origin of the device before dedicating a type of host-generated data access request to the device. The type of host-generated data access request is chosen by the dedication module in response to an operating capability correlated to the device by the dedication module based on the identified manufacturing origin. At least one host-generated request of the dedicated type is then completed with the device.

  • Publication number: 20230418959
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for executing hidden computational functions in a distributed data processing environment. In some embodiments, a trust boundary includes a target device such as a storage device, and a source device such as a client device in a computer network. A storage device processor executes a hidden command function (HCF) routine to accumulate HCF output data in a local cache responsive to an HCF command received from the client device over a data interface. The processor further establishes a smaller retention boundary within the trust boundary that includes the storage device and excludes the client device. The HCF output data are stored locally in a non-volatile memory (NVM) of the storage device while not transferring any portion of the HCF output data outside the retention boundary, including to the client device. The HCF routine can update a block-chain ledger or take some other form to provide data security.

  • Publication number: 20230418525
    Abstract: A distributed data storage system can be configured with a host connected to a device and a distribution module. The distribution module identifies a manufacturing origin of the device and diverts a system operation from an upstream component connected to the distribution module to the device in response to the identified manufacturing origin of the device. The manufacturer installed operating parameters of the device are then used to complete the system operation.

  • Publication number: 20230418685
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for offloading upstream processing tasks to peer groups of downstream data storage devices. A peer control circuit forms a peer group of storage devices in response to a detected processing bottleneck associated with a network controller. One of the storage devices in the peer group is designated as a primary device, and is responsible for interface communications, for subdividing the processing task for execution by secondary devices in the peer group, and coordinating overall execution. The peer group and the processing task are selected to avoid or minimize the processing bottleneck at the network controller level while maintaining ongoing data transfer performance at the storage device level. A list of available device resources and capabilities may be maintained by the peer control circuit. Offloaded tasks can include data rebuilds, cryptographic functions, new device authentication operations, and the like. Multiple overlapping peer groups can be formed as needed.
