  2. SBIR Phase I: Nanostructured Ceramics Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries with Superior Performance and Low Cost

    SBC: Membrion, Inc.            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to develop a novel low-cost molecular filter for use in harsh environments. This is accomplished using commodity silica gel, commonly found as a desiccant in food packing, whose pores can be made to be only a few molecules wide. Accurate tuning of the size and shape of the silica gel pores enables certain molecules to pass through while others are block from passing ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Production of mealworm biomass and recovery of resources from plastic wastes

    SBC: Beta Hatch Inc.            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project includes the development of new methods to biodegrade waste plastics. Plastic waste is an significant environmental burden. Over 300 million tons of plastic are used each year, resulting in millions of tons of persistent plastic waste, some of which can take up to 600 years to degrade. Mealworms (Ten ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: High-power laser compatible MEMS deformable mirrors for confocal and two-photon microscopy

    SBC: Revibro Optics, L.L.C.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will enable video-rate three-dimensional (3D) imaging within two-photon microscopes (TPMs) through the use of an electrostatically actuated deformable membrane mirror (DMM). As a subset of laser scanning microscopes (LSMs), TPMs achieve very high spatial resolution by using a focused, high-power laser beam to excite fluorescence via the simul ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: A personalizable e-reading app that supports science learning

    SBC: Squid Books, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will produce an innovative reading application, to support science learning. Although the science textbook is a central curricular resource, this resource is often inaccessible and difficult to read. Science textbooks are syntactically (grammatically) and semantically (word meaning) complex. Specifically, elementary and secondary science texts are often written 3 to 5 yea ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Rapid Blood Cleansing Device to Combat Infection

    SBC: Path Ex, Inc.            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to develop a dialysis-like platform for selective bacterial separation and removal from blood. This technology could potentially serve as a novel blood cleansing therapy for the treatment of disease, including sepsis. Sepsis, a life threatening organ dysfunction caused by infection, is a co ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Development, Optimization and Analysis of Poly (Carboxy Betaine) Bio-conjugates to L-Asparagianse as PEGylation Alternatives

    SBC: Furtim Therapeutics LLC            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to develop a superior alternative to the current frontline treatment for children?s Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). The primary treatment option has a host of negative side effects resulting from the use of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) conjugated to the L-asparaginase enzyme. Antibodies made against this drug can cause the body to eliminate it rapidly or result in ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: KONTAK Hydrogen Liquid Storage Reactor

    SBC: KONTAK, LLC            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I Project is designed to enable the wide acceptance of hydrogen as a green alternative to gasoline and diesel. To accomplish this goal, a way had to be found to safely and economically store, transport and use hydrogen. A class of organic compounds has been discovered that can store hydrogen, release it as needed, and form a recyclable residual compounds. By holding hydrogen on a l ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Advanced alkaline electrolyzer stack for hydrogen peroxide onsite production

    SBC: Peroxygen Systems, Inc.            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project is a significant advance in the production of hydrogen peroxide. The project, if successful, will yield an on-site electrolytic generation method that reduces the cost of peroxide production by up to 50% compared to the traditional centralized chemical process. By reducing cost, hydrogen peroxide can ...
