  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. Multiplexed sensor array for early predictors of multiple organ injury

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHP14005

    Bioassays employed to evaluate the diverse range of biomarkers associated with organ injury are time-consuming, costly and require multiple instruments/testing formats to reach a diagnosis (i.e. fluorescence-based capture, ELISAs, PCR, etc.). Individually, these platforms are incapable of predicting the onset of irreversible organ tissue injury (e.g. kidney, liver, heart and lung). If a single mul ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, model based risk assessment methodology, and a software tool to assess neck injury risk from head supported mass (HSM) loading. Based on the foundation of Phase I feasibility studies, the proposed Phase II work will focus on model enhancement, extension and validation, risk assessment, and software integration and tes ...

  5. Physics and Physiology Based Human Body Model of Blast Injury and Protection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13010

    The vast majority of injuries in recent military conflicts have been inflicted by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) causing brain, extremities and genital-urinary injuries. Advanced computational models of IED blast physics and human body injury biomech

  6. StABL-SD for Improved Burn Casualty Stabilization and Transport

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP13014

    Our warfighters are at great risk of large area burn wounds from incendiary munitions and improvised devices. Limitations of currently utilized field dressings greatly increase incidences of wound infection, further deterioration, shock and fatalities during CASEVAC to higher echelon levels of military medical care. During Phase I, Lynntech demonstrated strong proof-of-concept in vitro for a nov ...

  7. Antimicrobial Protective Silicone and Carbon Based Wound Dressings

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP13014

    Timely management and closure of burn wounds are critical for proper emergency care and the assurance of positive outcomes for the warfighter. Current technologies rely on reagents that cannot respond effectively to the different classes of pathogens that

  8. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  9. A Novel, Point-of-Care, Multi-Analysis Platelet Function Diagnostic System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP13013

    Platelets play a central role in hemostasis and are responsible for many inherited and acquired bleeding disorders and thrombic events in human beings. A significant portion of post-trauma deaths are related to coagulopathy or hemorrhage events for both injured soldiers and civilian patients. Several platelet function analyzers have been designed and developed; however due to form-factor and/or ...

  10. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...
