  • Patent number: 10676778
    Abstract: Methods, devices, systems and compositions for detecting nucleic acids in polymerase chain reaction assays, such as droplet digital polymerase chain reaction (ddPCR) assays, using intercalating dyes. A dual surfactant system with at least one fluorosurfactant and at least one non-ionic non-fluorosurfactant may be employed for droplet generation and nucleic acid detection.

  • Publication number: 20200090002
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a service receives machine learning-based generative models from a plurality of distributed sites. Each generative model is trained locally at a site using unlabeled data observed at that site to generate synthetic unlabeled data that mimics the unlabeled data used to train the generative model. The service receives, from each of the distributed sites, a subset of labeled data observed at that site. The service uses the generative models to generate synthetic unlabeled data. The service trains a global machine learning-based model using the received subsets of labeled data received from the distributed sites and the synthetic unlabeled data generated by the generative models.
