SBIR Phase I: Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer Assays for Clinical Chemistry
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop a point-of-care assay for creatine kinase, an important toxicity biomarker, to screen for adverse drug reactions (ADRs) using whole blood. The assay will utilize bioluminescent resonance energy transfer (BRET) probes incorporating quantum dots. The proposed technology is likely to impact toxicity testing, allowing physicians to test for potential ADR at an early stage and take corrective measures. With over 50% of Medicare patients taking multiple medications, the probability of ADRs is high and any inexpensive and reliable test for toxicity would be of benefit to these individuals and society as a whole.
