|20130261794||METHODS AND SYSTEMS TO SECURE CONTROL AND ENHANCE MEDICATION ADHERENCE - Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods to provide safe, secure and accurate point-to-point delivery of prescription and non-prescription drugs in the long-term home care or ambulatory care environment. More specifically, embodiments of the present invention provide for a low-cost, easy-to-use system comprised of a secure drug dispensing unit and medication enclosure combined with wireless connectivity and software based on smart mobile phone technology. Such systems and methods, referred to herein as a Secure, Control, and Enhance Medication Adherence (SCEMA) system, can mitigate the aforementioned risks associated with the use of prescription and non-prescription drugs. These risks can be significantly reduced for the elderly in the homecare environment, as well as the general public, without disrupting, or a significantly increasing the cost, to the existing prescription and non-prescription drug distribution infrastructure. In addition, the SCEMA system can provide a powerful platform for drug research.||10-03-2013|
|20130096817||TRACKING ACTIVITY, VELOCITY, AND HEADING USING SENSORS IN MOBILE DEVICES OR OTHER SYSTEMS - Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods for tracking a mobile device using sensors within the device and without using external signals to determine location, velocity, or heading. According to one embodiment, locating and tracking a mobile device can comprise reading sensor data from each of a plurality of sensors within the mobile device. The sensors can provide the sensor data without relying on a signal from a device external to the mobile device. For example, the plurality of sensors can comprise a compass, a gyroscope, and an accelerometer. Motion, velocity, and heading of the mobile device can be determined based on the sensor data.||04-18-2013|
|20130059761||Assembly of High Fidelity Polynucleotides - Methods and apparatus relate to the synthesis of high fidelity polynucleotides and to the reduction of sequence errors generated during synthesis of nucleic acids on a solid support. Specifically, design of support-bound template oligonucleotides is disclosed. Assembly methods include cycles of annealing, stringent wash and extension of polynucleotides comprising a sequence region complementary to immobilized template oligonucleotides. The error free synthetic nucleic acids generated therefrom can be used for a variety of applications, including synthesis of biofuels and value-added pharmaceutical products.||03-07-2013|
|20120220497||Methods and Microfluidic Devices for the Manipulation of Droplets in High Fidelity Polynucleotide Assembly - Methods and devices are provided for manipulating droplets on a support using surface tension properties, moving the droplets along a predetermined path and merging two droplets together enabling a number of chemical reactions. Disclosed are methods for controlling the droplets volumes. Disclosed are methods and devices for synthesizing at least one oligonucleotide having a predefined sequence. Disclosed are methods and devices for synthesizing and/or assembling at least one polynucleotide product having a predefined sequence from a plurality of different oligonucleotides having a predefined sequence. In exemplary embodiments, the methods involve synthesis and/or amplification of different oligonucleotides immobilized on a solid support, release of synthesized/amplified oligonucleotides in solution to form droplets, recognition and removal of error-containing oligonucleotides, moving or combining two droplets to allow hybridization and/or ligation between two different oligonucleotides, and further chain extension reaction following hybridization and/or ligation to hierarchically generate desired length of polynucleotide products.||08-30-2012|
