Award List:

FLUORINE PLASMA MODIFICATION OF FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

FLUORINE PLASMA MODIFICATION OF FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Groundwater contamination is an increasingly important concern. this research addresses the technology associated with preventing contamination by improving the design of polymer liners used in the construction of waste disposal containment systems. polymers currently used for flexible membrane… More

SPECIALIZED MEMBRANES FOR CONCENTRATION OF GASTRIC PEPTIDES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Mitchell klausner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Current systems for concentration of gastric peptides from rats and dogs rely on regenerated cellulose membranes that are implanted into the stomach wall. these membranes block adsorption of the peptides they are designed to carry; only 5 to 30 percent of the bulk concentration is observed. this… More

DEVELOPMENT OF POLYSTYRENE MICROCARRIERS WITH NOVEL SURFACE CHEMISTRY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mitchell klausner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
We have used radio-frequency, non-equilibrium plasma reactions to chemically modify the surface of tissue culture plates, and found that our modifications cause significantly improved growth of a variety of cells in monolayer culture in a very limited research program. we propose here to test the… More

HIGHLY ADHERENT COATINGS FOR BIOSENSORS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Numerous implantable biosensors have been developed, but none have reached commercial viability due to saline corrosion over extended periods. a coating technique is proposed which will combine the strong adherence of plasma polymerized thin films with the ease and simplicity of dip coatings. during… More

MICRODIALYSIS MEMBRANES FOR CHRONIC STUDIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Microdialysis is a relatively new technique for monitoring the neurochemical processes of the brain and the central nervous system. however, dialysis fibers stereotaxically implanted in the extracellular fluid of the brain react withastrocytes and fibroblasts within 1 hour. thus, even short-term… More

SPONTANEOUS ADHESION OF CULTURED PLANT CELLS TO GAS PLASMA TREATED POLYMER SUPPORTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Mitchell Klausner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The goal of this research project will be to determine the effects of substrate surface chemistry on adhesion of cultured plant cells. production of plant secondary metabolites will also be assessed as a function of substrate surface chemistry. novel gas plasma techniques will be used to effect… More

MICROCARRIER SURFACE DESIGN: AN ENGINEERING APPROACH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mitchell Klausner , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Well known suspension polymerization methods will be adapted in a novel way to produce microcarriers with desired surface chemistry. the proposed method will offer the flexibility of incorporating specific chemical functionalities and/or attachment aids or growth factors into the microcarrier… More

MODIFIED SURFACES FOR CHEMICALLY DEFINED CELL CULTURE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Mitchell Klausner
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The primary goal of this research is in the development of novel plastics on which to culture cells in serum-free media. currently, biological attachment aids must be used for anchorage-dependent cells to attach and grow normally inthe absence of serum. we will employ low temperature gas plasma… More
