Title: Raman Biosensor for High Throughput Pollen Analysis
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W911NF-12-C-0069
Award Amount: $99,976.00


We propose to develop a device that is capable of rapidly identifying and classifying pollen from a broad sampling base using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The proposed Raman device is designed to spectroscopically examine, identify and classify the spatial and temporal origin of pollen in complex mixtures using an automated high throughput SERS microscope system. The entire system will be portable, enabling its use anywhere a sample can be collected.
