Award List:

Development of the NanoDETECT Hand-Held PCR-Based Biosensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Carl A. Batt
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
To detect Salmonella contamination in processed chicken. To create a portable system for the detection of pathogenic bacteria in foods will be developed.

Development of the nanoDETECT Integrated Pathogen Detection System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Scott J. Stelick
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Sample preparation is extremely important to food borne pathogen detection because food matrices can severely inhibit nucleic acid amplification based detection methods. Samples must typically be pre-enriched to provide adequate numbers of target cells for detection. In addition, current… More

SBIR Phase I: Electronically Actuated Low Power Microfluidic Pump

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF

Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a low-cost, low-power, and disposable microfluidic Electrolytic Hydraulic Pumps (EHPs). Many emerging diagnostic and clinical applications, such as point-of-care Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) pathogen analysis and… More

OPTOFLUIDIC WAVEGUIDES FOR RECONFIGURABLE PHOTONIC SYSTEMS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Cornell University
Principal Investigator: Scott Stelick, Director of Research
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: David Erickson
Abstract:
Modern microfluidic and nanofluidics has enabled the development of a present day equivalent of such devices centered on the marriage of fluidics and optics which we refer to as "Optofluidics." In our device a stream of high refractive index liquid is fluidically focused down to a narrow width… More
