  2. A Personal Nanoparticle Counter

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A Personal Nanoparticle Counter This proposal addresses the need for a rugged, wearable instrument for the precise, real-time monitoring of airborne number concentrations for fine, ultrafine and nanometer-sized particles. Proposed is a new type of laminar-flow water condensation method that detects and counts particles as small as 5 nm in a tippable device. We ...

  3. Software Framework for Enabling Innovation in Behavior-based Energy Conservation in Commercial Buildings

    SBC: Lucid Design Group, Inc.            Topic: F

    According to the Department of Energy, the built environment represents more than 70 percent of U.S. electrical load and 38 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Electricity used by lighting, water heating, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) are projected to remain relatively flat by 2030, but miscellaneous electric loads (MELs) are projected to increase dramatically, from 18 perc ...

  4. Development of a Cost-effective, Nutrient-removal, Onsite Household Wastewater Treatment System for Environmentally Fragile Areas

    SBC: CLEW            Topic: A

    Coastal communities have witnessed their ecosystems change over the past 25 years due to nitrogen loading and phosphate pollution from high-population density and no access to centralized sewage systems. Some effects have been eutrophication, algal blooms, fish dying and, most notably, consequences for local development and real estate.CLEW provides an inexpensive, efficient and an environmentally ...

  5. Environmental Sensing System Enhanced With Nested Concentrating Electrodes (ESSENCE) for Safe and Sustainable Water Resources

    SBC: BIOPICO SYSTEMS Inc.            Topic: A

    Water quality is critical for human health and habitation, so a timely identification of pathogens is necessary to avoid severe infections and ensure safe and sustainable water resources. Most of the existing microorganism concentration methods are based on filtration using size or charge membranes, and a generic membrane-filtration method with the ability to simultaneously concentrate all microor ...

  6. ECAR- Electrochemical Arsenic Remediation for Affordable Water Security in America

    SBC: SimpleWater            Topic: F

    Arsenic contamination in public drinking water affects as many as 56 million Americans across 25 reporting states, disproportionately threatening low-income communities and private well owners, including those near shale gas deposits undergoing production by hydraulic fracturing. Many of these arsenic-prone communities rely on expensive energy and chemical-intensive processes, such as reverse osmo ...

  7. Next Generation of High-Capacity Perchlorate-Selective Resins for Drinking Groundwater Treatment

    SBC: AQUANANO, LLC            Topic: A

    Identification and Significance of the Opportunity. Perchlorate is a water-soluble anion that has emerged as a major contaminant of drinking groundwater sources in the United States. Various states have set public health goals for acceptable perchlorate levels in drinking water. For example, the State of California established a maximum concentration limit (MCL) of 6 ppb (mg/L) in October 2007 and ...

  8. A biomarker of aging as a predictor of kidney transplant function


    ABSTRACT The number of kidney transplant candidates on the waiting list continues to increase each year, while the number of kidney donations remains stagnant. The enduring donor shortage compels clinicians to use kidneys from marginal donors, referred toas expanded criteria donors (ECD). ECD kidneys, obtained primarily from older donors, have a higher risk of delayed graft function and graft loss ...

  9. Development of an Improved Bio-Manufacturing Platform for the Production of Glyco


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The protein therapeutic market is valued at 99 billion and is the fastest growing segment of the 600 billion pharmaceutical industry. Nearly half of all approved biopharmaceuticals are post-translationally modified byglycosylation [1]. Glycosylation influences protein solubility, serum half-life, immunogenicity and/or biological activity. Animal cell lines ar ...

  10. A Sensitive, Quantitative, Low-cost, Fluorescence Diagnostic System for Dengue


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne virus in the world and currently infects 390 million people annually. Studies have shown that existing point-of-care tests have inadequate sensitivity to identify manyindividuals infected with dengue. None have the quantitative capability necessary to aid in the detection of severe dengue, especially in secon ...
