Award List:

THE SENSITIVITY OF A NEW IMMUNOANALYSIS OF SMALL VOLUME RAW SPECIMENS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Myron J. Block
Award Amount: $49,000.00

THE LONG TERM OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP OUR NEW IMMUNOASSAY METHOD FOR USE IN THE DENTIST'S AND PHYSICIAN'S OFFICE.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Myron j. block , DIRECTOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The long term objective is to develop our new immunoassay method for use in the dentist's and physician's office. our method will use the evanescent wave on the surface of an optical fiber to optically separate bound from unbound antigen/antibody and to minimize the fluorescent background of the… More

THE SENSITIVITY OF A NEW IMMUNOANALYSIS OF SMALL VOLUME RAW SPECIMENS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Myron J. Block
Award Amount: $486,600.00
Abstract:
This project investigates the sensitivity of a new method of immunoanalysis to determine its applicability for use in a spacecraft environment. its characteristics are: use of unprocessed specimens (e.g., whole blood and saliva),a sample volume of 3 microliters, multiple determinations per specimen,… More

THE LONG TERM OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP AN OPTICAL INSTRUMENT (USING FLUORESCENT ANTIBODIES) FOR VIRAL DIAGNOSIS THAT IS SO SENSITIVE, RAPID, SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE THAT IT WILL HAVE WIDE RESEARCH AND DIAGNOSTIC USAGE.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Myron j. block , DIRECTOR
Award Amount: $49,544.00
Abstract:
The long term objective is to develop an optical instrument (using fluorescent antibodies) for viral diagnosis that is so sensitive, rapid, simple and inexpensive that it will have wide research and diagnostic usage. the specific aim is to identify (within 10 minutes) a single virus in… More

THE LONG TERM OBJECTIVE IS TO PRODUCE AN INEXPENSIVE, EASY TO USE, PORTABLE READOUT DEVICE FOR EXISTING FIBER OPTIC SENSORS OR "OPTRODES".

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Thomas glass , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,974.00
Abstract:
The long term objective is to produce an inexpensive, easy to use, portable readout device for existing fiber optic sensors or "optrodes". the readout instrument, in conjunction with the optrodes will be used to detect and monitor energy related substances of environmental concern. the readout… More

FIBER OPTIC MICROSENSOR FOR RECEPTOR-BASED ASSAYS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David A Eckerson
Award Amount: $49,993.00

RAPID FIBEROPTIC FLUORO-IMMUNOASSAY OF CANNABINOIDS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Myron J Block
Award Amount: $50,000.00

CHEMICAL DETECTION OF NERVE AGENT BY A TWO STEP DOSIMETER SYSTEM BASED ON ENZYME INHIBITION INDICATED BY FLUORESCENCE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Heinrich J Kochling
Award Amount: $49,994.00

FIBER OPTIC MICROSENSOR FOR RECEPTOR-BASED ASSAYS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David A Eckerson
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Our objective is to determine the feasibility of applying our fiber optic microsensor to receptor-based assay in the field. our microsensor senses only within the sub wavelength thin evanescent zone on the wall of an optical fiber. it is being applied to fluoroimmunoassay for both military and… More

CHEMICAL DETECTION OF NERVE AGENT BY A TWO STEP DOSIMETER SYSTEM BASED ON ENZYME INHIBITION INDICATED BY FLUORESCENCE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Heinrich J Kochling
Award Amount: $492,000.00
Abstract:
The long term objective is to develop a rapid "nerve agent" dosimeter detection system as simple, fieldable and rugged as a piece of wet, chemically impregnated cloth. it would have the sensitivity to detect less than 1 ng/m(3) of nerve agent in the field and the high specificity to agent… More

RAPID FIBEROPTIC FLUORO-IMMUNOASSAY OF CANNABINOIDS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Myron J Block
Award Amount: $488,000.00
Abstract:
The project's long-term objective is to develop a very sensitive pocket-size fiberoptic fluoro-immunoassay (ffia) system for the detection of drugs of abuse. this detection will be either of individual drugs or simultaneously of 1 or more drugs in a panel of up to 50 drugs, and will take less than… More
