NK Patent Law has the knowledge and experience necessary to navigate the requirements of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) for filing and prosecuting chemical patent applications. Our work in this area includes fluorescent microscopy, electron microscopy, including sample holders having improved chemical traits, and chemical processes for making silicon chips, nanostars, and the like.
The one or more embodiments disclosed herein provide a method for automatically assembling multiple compounds into a single edible custom composition, in which each compound is individually customized to proportions formulated from a profile of an individual or group. The single custom mixture can contain a plurality of compounds including foods or flavors, nutritional additives, herbals, biologics, or pharmacologically active substances. Using the method and a related algorithm, the formulation of a custom mixture is suggested.
The present disclosure relates to nucleic-acid based product authentication and identification by determining authentication codes comprising target nucleic acids using oligonucleotide probes associated with samples. The presence of the authentication code is determined using detection methods, such as flow cytometric methods, capable of particle discrimination based on the light scattering or fluorescence properties of the particle. Target-correlated fluorescence signal, originating from a target nucleic acid hybridized to labeled complementary oligonucleotides is determined as an indicator of the presence of the authentication code. In some embodiments, an intercalating dye is used to determine the presence of target nucleotide/oligonucleotide heterodimers and identify an authentication code.
Provided herein are methods of optimizing energy recovery from oilseeds. The methods disclosed provide at least the ability to swell oilseeds and disrupt the cell walls (hulls) without changing the functionality and quality of oil; the process integration of oil extraction and green coal production to maximize the energy recovery in the form of crude oil and green coal from oilseeds; and heat integration during processing stages including subcritical water pretreatment, oil extraction, and subcritical water carbonization to minimize the process heat requirement.
