Congratulations to Genomics USA, Inc.

Ramey & Schwaller wishes to congratulate its client Genomics USA on issuance of U.S. Patent Number 10,337,066 titled METHODS FOR PCR AND HLA TYPING USING UNPURIFIED SAMPLES on July 2, 2019.  The patent relates to methods for amplifying a gene or RNA or sets thereof of interest using a tandem PCR process. The primers in the first PCR or set of PCR reactions are locus-specific. The primers in the second PCR or set of PCR reactions are specific for a sub-sequence of the locus-specific primers and completely consumed during the second PCR amplification. For RNA amplification, the first PCR is reverse transcription and the resulting cDNA(s) provide a template for cRNA synthesis, endpoint PCR or real time PCR. Also provided is a tandem PCR method which accepts raw, completely unpu­rified mouthwash, cheek swabs and ORAGENE-stabilized saliva as the sample input, the resulting amplicons serving as the substrate for complex, microarray-based genetic testing. Also provided is a method of allelotyping a gene or set thereof by amplifying the gene(s) using tandem PCR on DNA or RNA comprising the sample. .

Congratulations to Credo Technology Group Limited

Ramey & Schwaller wishes to congratulate its client Arx Pax Labs on issuance of U.S. Patent Number 10,313,165 titled FINITE IMPULSE RESPONSE ANALOG RECEIVE FILTER WITH AMPLIFIER-BASED DELAY CHAIN on June 4, 2019.  High-data rate channel interface modules and equalization methods employing a finite impulse response (FIR) analog receive filter. Embodiments include an illustrative channel interface module having multiple amplifier-based delay units arranged in a sequential chain to convert an analog input signal into a set of increasingly-delayed analog signals that are weighted and combined together with the analog input signal to form an equalized signal; and a symbol decision element operating on the equalized signal to obtain a sequence of symbol decisions. An interface that extracts received data from the sequence of symbol decisions. The delay units may employ one or more delay cells each having a common-source amplifier stage followed by a source follower output stage, the two stages providing approximately equal portions of the propagation delay. An enhanced gate-to-drain capacitance in the common-source amplifier may increase propagation delay while reducing bandwidth limitations.
