  • Publication number: 20220012047
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided that may be utilized to detect occurrence of one or more specified circumstances. A determination may be made as to whether one or more specified circumstances are detected such as responsive to one or more user actions or an occurrence of an event unrelated to a user. One or more binary digital signals may be generated to store a detection of one or more specified user circumstances in a log or memory at least partially in response to detection of the one or more specified circumstances.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 11162060
    Abstract: A novel Self-Locking Optoelectronic Tweezers (SLOT) for single microparticle manipulation across a large area is provided. DEP forces generated from ring-shape lateral phototransistors are utilized for locking single microparticles or cells in the dark state. The locked microparticles or cells can be selectively released by optically deactivating these locking sites.
    Type: Grant
