  3. POC 2-D Diffusion Assay for self-monitoring of BNP

    SBC: SENTILUS            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this STTR proposal is to develop a 2-D diffusion point-of-care assay (POC) for B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP). The primary goal of the proposed work is to create a test format that will allow patientswith chronic heart failure to quantitatively self-monitor serum levels of BNP. Determination of baseline level of BNP and changes in this level ...

  5. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...

  6. New generation of catheters for treatment of atrial fibrillation

    SBC: NOCTURNAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Atrial fibrillation remains the most commonly occurring cardiac arrhythmia. It is associated with a lower quality of life and a higher rate of morbidity and mortality. Cryotherapy and radiofrequency catheter ablations for the purpose of eliminating atrial fibrillation have become a mainstream treatment option. They produce lesions that block the spread of elect ...
