  1. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  2. Shoulder injury risk and exertion assessment tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13008

    Musculoskeletal injury among military personnel is an under-recognized problem where shoulder injuries are significant and result in inflammation and pain from overuse, joint derangement, sprain/stain/rupture, and dislocation. Health hazard assessment is essential to ensure that fielded equipment and occupational duties do not exceed human capabilities over short and long term exposures. Hazard ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Regenerative Freeze Suppression for Thermally Bound Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: REBOUND TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: EI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project includes peak demand relief for utilities, reduced freezer operating costs for retail stores, and natural refrigerants for regulators. Unfortunately, no state-ofthe- art system simultaneously addresses all these issues. Industrial/commercial batteries remain unaffordable, refrigeration costs account for 60% of a retail store?s electricity bil ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Using microbial genetic data to improve oil production efficiency and reduce environmental impact

    SBC: UC2            Topic: BC

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will be to increase the efficiency of domestic oil production. Using current methods, the oil industry is able to extract only 5% of the known hydrocarbon from shale formation. This represents more than $500B of potential oil and gas that cannot be economically produced for the US economy. Th ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: An Interactive 3D Game of Evolutionary Robotics for STEM-based Education

    SBC: Xemory LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase II project studies the problem of how to engage students in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) education through game-based learning in a Virtual Robotics computer game. In the game, students design, assemble and train virtual walking robots to compete against their peer robots to secure a seat on a virtual mission to Mars. The project analyses the effects of com ...
