|Patent application number||Title||Published|
|20100167284||NUCLEIC ACID SIZE DETECTION METHOD - The present invention provides methods of determining the size of a particular nucleic acid segment of interest in a sample of nucleic acids through fragmentation of DNA, size fractionation, an optional second fragmentation, and identification using a marker sequence. In particular aspects, an expansion or reduction of tandem repeat sequences can be detected. In further aspects, carriers and individuals afflicted with fragile X syndrome or other diseases associated with tandem repeats can be distinguished from normal individuals.||07-01-2010|
|20100120101||REACTION CHAMBER - A chamber in which an agent, like genomic DNA, may be harvested and optionally manipulated rapidly (e.g., on the order of a few hours), without shearing or fragmentation.||05-13-2010|
|20100116025||AIR SAMPLER - An air sampler includes an inertial impactor with a compressible porous collector that receives particles greater than a lower threshold size from an air sample. Before reaching the collector, the air sample may pass through a sorter that prevents that removes particles above an upper threshold size. A mechanism transfers the compressible porous collector and base between the air sampler and a wash position outside of the air sampler. An agitator at the wash position may agitate the compressible porous collector to remove particles therefrom. The compressor may be wetted with various substances to facilitate particle collection from the air, preservation of particles on the collector, and removal of particles from the collector.||05-13-2010|
|20100112576||FOCUSING CHAMBER - Aspects of the invention relate to devices and methods of use thereof for concentrating, positioning and/or manipulating agents within a fluid, including but not limited to genomic DNA.||05-06-2010|
|20100035247||Heterogeneous Assay of Analytes in Solution Using Polymers - The invention relates to methods and systems for identifying, quantitating and/or analyzing analytes from samples. The analytes may be organic or inorganic in nature and include but are not limited to pathogens such as viruses.||02-11-2010|
|20090215032||ANALYTE DETECTION USING BARCODED POLYMERS - The invention relates to methods and systems for identifying, quantitating and/or analyzing analytes from samples. The analytes may be organic or inorganic in nature and include but are not limited to pathogens such as viruses.||08-27-2009|
|20080254549||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETECTING AND ANALYZING POLYMERS - A detection system and methods for improving the ability of the detection system to recognize labels that are disposed on a polymer. Embodiments of the invention include schemes for selecting emitters and labels used within the system in a manner that allows an increase in the number of distinct labels that can be used together in a system. In other embodiments, the detection system and methods are directed to identifying portions of a detection signal that may be associated with extra labels residing within a detection zone. In other embodiments, the detection system and methods relate to using wide field imaging detectors while reducing out of focus noise contributions to detection signals of the system. Still, other embodiments relate to the use of linear array detectors to detect labels||10-16-2008|
