Award List:

Multiple Foodborne Pathogen Resequencing Microarray-based Diagnostic Assay

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clark Tibbetts, Executive Vice President and CTO
Award Amount: $79,679.00
Most contemporary diagnostic tests are designed to detect and identify a single particular pathogen if it may be present in a given specimen. Furthermore such assays typically rely upon a short biomarker, or short signature gene sequence element to INDIRECTLY determine if the specimen is or is not… More

Resequencing Microarray-based Diagnostic Assay for High Priority Swine Infectious Diseases

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clark Tibbetts, Executive VP/CTO
Award Amount: $89,652.00
National swine health statistics indicate a growing death rate due to respiratory disease in both the nursery and grower/finished phases in swine (Swine 2006, APHIS, USDA). In 2006, veterinary diagnostic testing revealed that Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome was the most prevalent of… More

Validation of a Multiple Food-borne Pathogen Detection and Strain-Level Identification Assay

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clark Tibbetts, Executive VP and Chief Technology Office – (703) 444-7188
Award Amount: $460,000.00
The primary objectives of this Phase II project are to 1) validate performance of the prototype resequencing pathogen microarray application for detection and identification of selected food-borne pathogens, including varieties of viruses, bacteria and eukaryotic agents; 2) iterate and port the… More
