Canopy's NanoString service offers a simple, web-based ordering tool. Researchers are able to choose from one of NanoString's pre-made gene panels or design their own custom panel. Each panel enables the simultaneous measurement of over 700 genes. Edward Weinstein, PhD, CEO of Canopy Biosciences, said "Canopy is excited to be able to offer NanoString services. NanoString instruments are costly, which has limited the access to this powerful technology for many researchers. Not only can we now offer the technology to all researchers, but we've also simplified the complex ordering process and can provide complete data analysis for our customers."

For this year’s edition of the annual commission, the artist reconfigured the environment of the Cantor Roof by adding a new pergola, a bar, a grand tiled floor, public benches and augmented plantings throughout the space. In this welcoming setting, replicas of over 100 pieces from the Met’s collection are joined to form an experience that encompasses thousands of years of artistic production over several continents and cultures. The Infinity Canopy was selected to cover the bar area, both for visual design and to protect the bar and its visitors from the elements. “We’re highly honored to have Infinity Canopy incorporated in an art exhibition, both for its appearance and its function,” stated Infinity Canopy’s inventor Alan Shargani. “The Met is one of the most visited and most prestigious art museums in the world, and we are delighted to be able to enhance the appearance and function of their annual roof garden commission.” Infinity Canopy is a highly versatile, patented modular canopy system that visually recalls classic Roman shades. The retractable, slide-on-wire canopy adds shade, rain protection, and ambiance to any space. Unlike other canopies and shade systems that are one piece and can’t be modified after fabrication, Infinity Canopy is comprised of individual shade panels that connect together to create a canopy of any length, in one or multiple colors. Every aspect of Infinity Canopy can be easily changed, even after installation, allowing it to be lengthened, shortened, and modified into new configurations and designs not possible with any other shade system. Shade modules can easily be switched or re-arranged to match changing décor, or even to complement the changing seasons. The Met’s 40’x34’ Infinity Canopy, featuring Sunbrella Firesist fabric, was custom fabricated and delivered within one week from the order date, meeting a tight deadline for installation and subsequent opening of the exhibit. However, after installation, it was discovered that the plans given to the fabricator were wrong, and the canopy was two feet shorter than the actual size of the trellis. Due to the unique modular design of Infinity Canopy, an extension could be quickly manufactured and overnighted to the museum, allowing it to be installed by the museum’s staff in time for the opening. This easy modification stands in sharp contrast to conventional canopy systems, which would have required re-manufacture of the entire canopy at considerable cost and time delay. Installation was provided by the local Infinity Canopy dealer, GSS Awning of NY. Infinity Canopy is available in standard sizes and colors for rapid delivery throughout North America, supported by a broad network local dealer/installers. Custom sizes, colors and fabrics are available with slightly longer delivery times. About Infinity Canopy Infinity Canopy is the originator of the modular canopy system. Created to provide a flexible and versatile retractable canopy system that is inexpensive, fast to fabricate, and easy to install, modify and repair; Infinity Canopy has multiple patents and won numerous awards for its innovative approach and durable, long-lived design. Infinity Canopy is available in 22 standard colors and fabrics plus custom shades in virtually any fabric or color, and is suitable for both commercial and residential applications.

A system that incorporates teachings of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a water vehicle including a deck that accommodates a group of passengers above a waterline and an observation gondola accommodating the group of passengers below the waterline. The access between the observation gondola and the deck is provided by way of an aperture in a top of the observation gondola. The observation gondola includes a transparent floor and walls allowing the group of passengers to enjoy an underwater experience without exposure to the water and while maintaining an unobstructed panoramic view of the underwater environment. The underwater observation gondola can include a substantially open top, which may include a sun screen or weather protective cover. The open top exposes the observation gondola to fresh air, while alleviating any claustrophobic sensations as might otherwise be experienced by passengers during underwater observation. Other embodiments are disclosed.
