  1. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: NANOSPHERE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    1. Abstract. The Mirkin group at Nortwestern University has developed methods for exquisitely sensitive analyte detection that rely upon forming hybridized arrays of nucleic acid-derivatized gold nanoparticles. These methods lend themselves immediately to colorimetric detection and dipstick-style applications. The hybridized nanoparticles are (quite literally) ‘blue,’ the separated nanopar ...

  2. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind target molecules with high affinity and specificity. Such DNA aptamers are biocompatible, biodegradabl ...

  3. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    Currently there is no real-time technology to detect airborne biological warfare agents (BWAs). Conventional technologies require 30 minutes to 1 hour. We propose to design, fabricate and test user-friendly, low-logistical-load biosensors capable of the real-time (~ 30 s. or less) detection and identification of airborne BWAs with high sensitivity and specificity for all classes of bioagents – ...

  4. Confinement of Threading Dislocations at the CdTe/Si Interface for Improved HgCdTe IR Sensors

    SBC: WIZDOM SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A06T021

    Stringent requirements on the performance of third generation HgCdTe infrared detectors demand the availability of affordable high quality substrates with very large areas. The large areas are needed both for the fabrication of single very large focal plane arrays (FPAs) (2048x2048) and to increase the yield of smaller size FBAs per wafer. The quality of commercial CdTe/Si technology, the best lar ...
