Patent
Ameriforge Group Inc., Erickson and Jason Inc | Date: 2017-05-31

Some embodiments of the present clamps include a first clamp portion having a first end defining a recess and a second end configured to be coupled to a first structure, a second clamp portion having a first end configured to be coupled to a second structure and a second end configured to be received in the recess of the first clamp portion, and a shear pin configured to secure the second clamp portion relative to the first clamp portion. Some embodiments include a retaining member disposed in the recess. In some embodiments, the recess and/or retaining member is configured to resist shearing of the shear pin if a force is applied to the second clamp portion in a first direction, but not if the force is applied in a second direction. In some embodiments, the first direction is substantially parallel with, but opposite to, the second direction.

Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety | Year: 2010

The microbiological safety of cabbage, carrots, celery, and onions/scallions as well as deli (mayonnaise-based) salads that contain these items is the subject of this review. Between 2000 and 2007, the number of outbreaks in the United States associated with these raw produce items ranged from 6 (celery) to 18 (carrots). For cases with confirmed etiologies involving these 4 types of produce as well as coleslaw, chicken, seafood, and other vegetable-based salads, more than 50% of the outbreaks were attributed to viral agents. In contrast, Salmonella spp. served as the major etiological agent in outbreaks associated with potato salad. Surveys conducted on these produce items within the United States and other developed countries found either an absence or infrequent contamination with foodborne pathogens. Despite this low prevalence, experimental studies have demonstrated the potential for preharvest contamination, and this event is more likely to occur when exposure is close to harvest. Postharvest contamination of these produce items has been documented in several cases with water, equipment, and incoming product serving as the principal cross-contamination agent. Survival of contaminated product during subsequent storage is dependent on the storage temperature, produce type, and presence of mayonnaise. Chemical interventions may be relied on to reduce cross-contamination during produce washing operations but are limited in their ability to inactivate pathogens on the produce surface. In contrast, irradiation at dosages (1.0 kGy) approved for use in the United States is an effective treatment for killing pathogenic bacteria in fresh-cut cabbage, carrots, and celery. © 2010 Institute of Food Technologists ®.

Critical Reviews in Microbiology | Year: 2014

The genus Shewanella is currently composed of more than 50 species that inhabit a range of marine environs and ecosystems. Several members of this genus, including S. oneidensis, have been identified that could potentially play key roles in environmental processes such as bioremediation of toxic elements and heavy metals and serving as microbial fuel cells. In contrast to this beneficial role, shewanellae are increasingly being implicated as human pathogens in persons exposed through occupational or recreational activities to marine niches containing shewanellae. Documented illnesses linked to Shewanella include skin and soft tissue infections, bacteremia, and otitis media. At present, it is unclear exactly how many Shewanella species are truly bona fide human pathogens. Recent advances in the taxonomy and phylogenetic relatedness of members of this genus, however, support the concept that most human infections are caused by a single species, S. algae. Some phylogenetic data further suggest that some current members of the genus are not true Shewanella species sensu stricto. The current review summarizes our present knowledge of the distribution, epidemiology, disease spectrum, and identification of microbial species focusing on a clinical perspective. © 2014 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

In the preferred embodiment, the container [10] has a box [100] with a lid [200] pivotally attached thereto. The box [100] has a bracket system [300] comprised of an upper bracket [310], a central bracket [320] and a lower bracket [340] which have complementary geometric relationships that facilitate attachment to the multiple structures.


An electrosurgical generator may reduce unintended tissue damage by improving regulation of output power. The electrosurgical generator may control the power during a cycle, and react to a change in power if arcing occurs. Voltage sources, especially, demonstrate the tendency to have large, uncontrolled power excursions during normal electrosurgical use. The magnitude of the power excursions may be dependent on various factors. An exemplary electrosurgical generator control scheme reduces or minimizes the thermal spread by accurately supplying the specified power within a few cycles. Additionally, fast and accurate regulation provided by the constant voltage mode reduces or minimizes unintentional tissue charring. Thus, reduced thermal spread and charring should result in better surgical outcomes by reducing scarring and decreasing healing times. An electrosurgical generator controller may be configured to control both a DC-DC buck converter and a DC-AC boost inverter based in part on electrical parameters of the electrosurgical generator.

Drug-resistant microorganisms and cancers result in more than 8 million deaths per year globally. While there has been extensive research into the mechanisms for bacterial or cancer drug resistance, there is no comprehensive method that allows the scientific community to easily search and draw comparisons across existing datasets. This project aims to build such a tool, deemed the Resistome. This project is conducted in collaboration with Prof. Juan Hsueh-Fen at the National Taiwan University, an expert in systems biology with invaluable experience in elucidating complex mechanisms underlying human disease. The Resistome will enable large-scale computational studies that were previously impossible, which will lead to new realizations about the nature of drug-resistance and will promote the eventual development of novel therapeutics that hinder resistance.

The initial vision for the database was to enable tracking of resistance-conferring mutations across diverse cell types, which will allow information to be analyzed using automated machine learning techniques. However, it is increasingly evident that transient responses at the gene expression level also promote resistance, without necessarily being reflected at the genome level. Thus, this major aim of this project is to expand the current Resistome database to allow for the incorporation of transcriptome-level data. Continuous collaboration with the Juan lab will have maximum benefit during this time, such that value fields in the database can be properly selected to broadly apply to bacterial and cancer drug resistances. A central database that includes both resistance-conferring mutations and resistance-conferring gene expression changes will support novel and complex computational efforts to identify the fundamental interactions underlying drug resistance.

This award under the East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes program supports summer research by a U.S. graduate student and is jointly funded by NSF and the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan.
