Award List:

Catalytic DNA Biosensor for Toxic Metal Ions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN
Principal Investigator: Yi Lu
Award Amount: $99,986.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A general method of developing catalytic DNA biosensors for on-site, real-time, and cost-effective detection and quantification of multiple heavy metal ions, such as mercury, cadmium and lead, simultaneously will be explored. Exposure to these metal ions can… More

Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF ILLINOIS AT U-C
Principal Investigator: Lu Yi
Award Amount: $99,997.00
RI Contact: Kathy Young
Abstract:
We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind… More

Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Juewen Liu, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard as low level lead exposure can result in a number o adverse health effects, especially in children. On-site and real-time detection and quantification of lead in the paint/dust is very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint… More

Allosteric DNAzyme sensors for practical detection of mycotoxins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Research Institution: UNIVERSITY OF ILINOIS AT URBAN
Principal Investigator: Scott K. Silverman
Award Amount: $99,996.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by fungi that contaminate crops during growth, transportation, or storage. Contamination of food and feed by mycotoxigenic fungi is an important agricultural and national security concern. For example, thousands of people… More

STTR Phase I: Allosteric DNAzyme Sensors for Practical Detection of Cyanotoxins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Univ of IL Urbana-Champaign
Principal Investigator: Juewen F. Liu, Dr
Award Amount: $149,995.00
RI Contact: Scott K. Silverman
Abstract:
This STTR Phase I research will develop detection methods using allosteric DNAzymes (aptazymes) to detect cyanobacterial toxins that occur throughout the world in both fresh and brackish water. Cyanotoxins present a public safety hazard through contamination of drinking water supplies by blue-green… More

RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cost-effective catalytic DNA biosensors for heavy metal ions such as lead(II), uranium(VI), mercury(II), and cadmium(II) will be developed. They will be tested for on-site, real-time detection and quantification with mi nimal rates of false positive or false… More

SBIR Phase I: Dip-stick tests for detection of heavy metals in water

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Debapriya Mazumdar
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focuses on commercializing dip-stick tests for detection of heavy metals (lead, uranium, copper, mercury) in water, where the appearance of a red line on the test strip will indicate the presence of a contaminant. Heavy metal contamination in… More

Real-time, continuous and quantitative detection of bioavailable radionuclides and heavy metals in contaminated water at DOE sites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Debapriya Mazumdar, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,941.00
Abstract:
Quantitative, real-time detection of hazardous metal ions on-site is an important goal and remains a significant challenge while monitoring sources such as potable, ground, surface and industrial waters. Quantitative analysis of trace elements is predominantly done by sending the samples to a… More
