SIMPLE LAB TEST FOR LOCALIZING GI BLEEDING SITE
Not Available Field detection of multiple biological agents based on rapid nucleic acid amplification is an anticipated goal of DOD We here propose development of a hand held battery operated microfluorimeter device for fluorescence based detect ion and quantitation of biological agent a after nucleic acid amplification. This device is beard on our patented technology of Acousto Optic Tunable Filters which permits rapid, specific, ultra-sensitive, and quantitative analysis of fluorescence light omission from the full range of fluorescence omission wavelengths. A prototype hand held device based on this robust technology and solid state electronics components will be made and tested during the course of this proposed research and development program. BENEFITS: There are universal applications for the proposed device with an estimated commercial diagnostic market size of $5 billion per year in the United States alone.
