The device (1A) includes a holder (2) that supports the blister pack and includes channels (20, 22) that define a dispensing chamber into which the contents of the blister pack cavities can be dispensed. The blister pack is supported by the holder (2) in use with the open mouth of each cavity (44) facing the channels (20, 22) such that when the contents of a cavity are dispensed through the seal (46) they are received in the channels. The device (1A) further includes an electronic module (30) that is releasably connected to the holder (2) by a suitable connection feature. The electronic module (30) includes electronic monitoring means for monitoring each circuit that is provided on the seal (46) in the form of a pattern of electrically conductive tracks. In use, the part (48) of the blister pack that includes a termination point for each circuit is in electrical contact with the electronic monitoring means of the electronic module (30).
||WO||WO/2014/057255 - HIGH FREQUENCY PHASE REFERENCE STANDARD SIGNAL||17.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052617||MESURO LIMITED||BENEDIKT, Johannes|
A pre-characterised high frequency signal (14) is provided by means of a non- linear circuit, for example an amplifier circuit (10), fed with a first signal (12) with a component at a first, fundamental, frequency (FO). The amplifier circuit generates an output signal comprising harmonic components (14h1, 14h2, 14h3) having stable and predetermined phase relation relative to each other. Information concerning the phase relation of the harmonic frequency components is provided, for example by means of a data file (16). At least two of the harmonic components are at the tenth or lower harmonic frequencies. The signal strength of such low- order harmonic components may be relative high, thus enabling the provision of a pre-characterised high frequency multi-tone signal from the amplifier circuit with high signal to noise ratio.

||WO||WO/2014/057268 - MULTIPLE PROBE ACTUATION||17.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052633||INFINITESIMA LIMITED||HUMPHRIS, Andrew|
A method of actuating a plurality of probes by delivering photothermal energy to the probes so that the probes are heated and deform relative to a sample. The photothermal energy is delivered to the probes by: directing an input beam into an optical device; transforming the input beam with the optical device into a plurality of actuation beamlets which are not parallel with each other; and scanning the actuation beamlets across the probes, optionally via an objective lens. A spacing between the actuation beamlets is different to a spacing between the probes so that only a subset (typically only one) of the actuation beamlets illuminates a probe at any instant. As the actuation beamlets scan across the probes the probes are illuminated in an illumination sequence. The actuation beamlets are controlled so that different amounts of photothermal energy are delivered to at least two of the probes during the illumination sequence.
||WO||WO/2014/057270 - SYSTEM STATE CLASSIFIER||17.04.2014||
||PCT/GB2013/052635||LANCASTER UNIVERSITY BUSINESS ENTERPRISES LTD||ANGELOV, Plamen|
A method and apparatus for classifying the state of a system are described. The state of the system can be in one of a plurality of different classes and the system can have at least one property represented by a set of data items. A current data item representing a property of the system is received. The system is classified as being in one of a plurality of different classes based on the probability that the system is in any one of the plurality of classes calculated using the current data item, a recursively calculated mean value for the set of data items representing the property of the system and at least one recursively calculated statistical parameter for the set of data items representing the property. It is determined whether to output a signal based on the class in which the system is classified.
