  • Publication number: 20240150508
    Abstract: In some examples, novel photochemically-reversible hydrogels and nanogel particles are described comprising copolymer chains including at least one reactive alkene or reactive 1,4-diene end group capable of [2+2] or [2+2+2+2] photodimerization, respectively, at wavelengths >270 nm. In various examples, the photochemically-reversible hydrogels comprise copolymer chains including at least one —N3, —C?CH or —CO2H end group for dual functionality and/or pH responsiveness. For nucleic acid sequencing, amplification primers are grafted to photochemically-reversible hydrogels or nanogel particles reversibly bound to surfaces within a flow cell. After sequencing is complete, the photochemically-reversible hydrogel or nanogel particles is/are removable from the flow cell surfaces by irradiation, enabling the flow cell to be reusable.

  • Patent number: 11969945
    Abstract: In one example in accordance with the present disclosure, a system is described. The system includes a reader to 1) read an identifier from a three-dimensional (3D) System printed object that includes a storage element and 2) read a location of the 3D printed object within a build material bed. An extractor of the system extracts, based on the identifier, a post processing operation to execute on the 3D printed object. A controller of the system controls a post processing operation based on extracted post processing operation information and the location.

  • Publication number: 20240126333
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a flexible display and a device housing that defines a translation surface for the flexible display. A blade assembly is positioned between the flexible display and the translation surface. A rotor is positioned within a curvilinear section of the blade assembly and flexible display. A translation mechanism translates the blade assembly and flexible display between an extended position, a retracted position, and a peek position revealing an image capture device.

  • Publication number: 20240117426
    Abstract: In some examples, novel nanogel particles are described having dual functionality, temperature responsiveness and pH responsiveness. For nucleic acid sequencing, amplification primers are grafted to nanogel particles to form primer-grafted nanogel particles, and the primer-grafted nanogel particles are captured onto surfaces within a flow cell. Within flow cells such as used in SBS nucleic acid sequencing, each primer-grafted nanogel particle functions as a nano-well in the flow cell, thus eliminating the need for nano-wells in some examples.

  • Publication number: 20240106840
    Abstract: Systems, computer program products, and methods are described herein for identifying and preventing misappropriation using normalized request sequences. The method includes receiving a sequence of two or more requests associated with a user. The method also includes comparing the sequence of two or more requests with one or more past sequence of two or more past requests. The method further includes determining whether the sequence of two or more requests were carried out by the user or the malfeasant actor. The determination is made based on a comparison of the sequence of two or more requests with at least one of the one or more past sequence of two or more past requests. The method also includes causing an escalation action to be executed in an instance in which the sequence of two or more requests was carried out by the malfeasant actor.

  • Publication number: 20220380844
    Abstract: In one example, a method of preparing a fluidic channel includes covalently coupling a first region of a substrate to a first region of a cover using first moieties covalently coupled to the first region of the substrate and second moieties covalently coupled to the first region of the cover. The covalent coupling between the first region of the substrate and the first region of the cover suspends a second region of the cover over a second region of the substrate to form a fluidic channel.
