  1. Handheld Microfluidic Device for Cyanobacteria Toxin Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated“lab-on-a-chip” technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of a variety of toxins in drinking water, particularly microcystins and other toxins produced by cyanobacteria. During blooms, the toxins in freshwater become concentrated enough to be a serious concern for ahuman health, ...

  2. Development of Pathway Selective Cells and Assays for Sensitive Detection of Environmental Toxicants via High Throughput Label-free Cell Based Screening

    SBC: ACEA Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: B

    Environmental pollutants that impact critical biological pathways involved in human development and physiology can have unpredictable effect on health. Among these critical pathways, various receptor tyrosine kinases, sonic hedgehog, transforming growth factor beta, Notch and WNT are known or suspected mediators of the effect of numerous environmental toxicants produced during manufacturing, pres ...

  3. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water Based Wood Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: B

    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors is moving back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For the last thirty years the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmenta ...

  5. Solid State Sensor System for Inspection of Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A

    An important type of water pipe is the Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP). There are thousands of miles of PCCP installed in the US in sections with length up to 20 feet and diameter for 2 to 14 feet. The large size of the pipes, the thickness of the concrete (up to 10 inches) and the composite construction, which involved concrete, high strength prestressing steel wires and sheet steel c ...

  6. Environmentally Friendly Borate-Based Wood Preservative

    SBC: LIQUID LIGNIN COMPANY            Topic: B

    This natural organic retention project proposes using lignin from emerging biorefineries to allow borates to be used as wood preservatives for exterior applications exposed to rain. Enhancing retention of environmentally-friendly borates has been the“holy grail” of the industry for decades. We believe this team and technical approach are very well suited for this challenge because: • The ...

  7. 3D Breast Tissue Co-cultures for Screening Mammary Carcinogens

    SBC: REGENEMED, INC.            Topic: B

    Breast cancer is not a disease of individual cells, but principally a failure of cells and tissues to communicate properly. One communication mechanism that is frequently disrupted in breast cancer involves the hormone estrogen. Despite recognition that exposure to compounds with estrogenic activity can promote breast cancer formation and progression, no good mechanistic explanation presently ex ...

  8. Automated Monitoring of Wastewater Treatment Efficiency

    SBC: Verrix, LLC            Topic: D

    Wastewater treatments minimize transmission of pathogens, and are required by the EPA with established treatment and monitoring requirements. The efficiency of treatment processes is determined by measuring the inactivation of indicator organisms (e.g., fecal coliforms) with culture-based techniques. Recently, Clostridium perfringens spores have been identified as excellent indicator organisms t ...

  10. Nomethiazoles Harnessing GABA and NO mimetic activity for Alzheimer's therapy

    SBC: sGC Pharma Inc.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) occurs in one out of eight Americans of age 65 and affects 43% of the elderly over 85. Current FDA-approved drugs only provide symptomatic relief of AD. There is a pressing need to discover newdisease-modifying medications. AD is multifactorial in origin and progression. A drug attenuating several underlying factors is a preferred ...
