A Turn Key Approach to High Throughput DNA Sequencing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Gregory Kellogg
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aim of this Phase I proposal is to establish proof of concept for development of an integrated microfluidic DNA sample prep bioMEMS device in order to greatly streamline DNA sequencing time and cost. The objectives to be addressed include: 1.… More

Rapid, Ruggedized, and Fully Integrated STR Typing for Kinship Analysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Eugene Tan – (781) 938-6066
Award Amount: $99,988.00
Abstract:
The availability of a ruggedized, fully integrated STR typing instrument that combines DNA purification, amplification, separation and detection, and data analysis into a single, easy-to-operate system would represent a substantial advance in human identification. The purpose of the Phase I SBIR… More

Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard F. Selden
Award Amount: $880,045.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improved diagnoses of Chlamydia trachomatis infections represent a critical unmet medical need. C. trachomatis is an obligate intracellular pathogen of humans that causes blindness, pelvic inflammatory disease, infertil ity, and is an important cofactor in… More

Customized STR Typing System for Kinship Analysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: James Schumm – (941) 807-6108
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
First described in the early 1990`s, short tandem repeat (STR) analysis is the gold standard of human identification. With a false identification rate as low as one in hundreds of trillions, STR analysis is a powerful tool for determining human identification objectively. The goal of this work is… More

A Rapid Point-of-care Diagnostic for Neisseria gonorrhoeae STDs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard F. Selden – 781-938-6013
Award Amount: $600,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improved diagnosis of Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) infections represents a critical unmet medical need. The CDC estimates that approximately 700,000 people are infected by GC annually, with approximately half of these cases reported. The clinical spectrum of GC… More

Low Cost and Rapid DNA-Based Biometric Device

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator: Richard Selden, Executive Chairman – (781) 810-4904
Award Amount: $3,381,403.00
Abstract:
Sensitive site exploitation activities are focused on collecting forensic evidence left behind by persons involved in terrorist or other illegal activity, and the biological evidence recovered is often referred to as"touch DNA samples". Touch samples include fingerprints, skin cells found… More

A Rapid Point-of-care Diagnostic for C. trachomatis STDs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Richard F. Selden – 781-938-6013
Award Amount: $3,000,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improved diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) infections represents a critical unmet medical need. Ct is the most common cause of bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STD) worldwide, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that there… More
