  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  2. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...

  3. Field Analytical Model for Perchlorate

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    Perchlorate is a widely used component of solid fuel, missile and rocket propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. It has been shown to reduce iodide uptake into the thyroid gland. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found perchlorate contamination in 18 states and believes contamination may exist in as many as 39 states. In early January 2005, the National Academy of Science ...

  4. Transdermal GnRH Delivery System to Treat Infertility

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy is a desire most couples expect to fulfill in their lifetime. However, infertility affects between eight and fifteen percent of the American population. One of the most common causes of female infertility is anovulation, or the inability to stimulate and release an egg from the ovary. Although there are a number ...

  5. High-throughput Prediction of Compound Tissue Distribution

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of the proposed research is to develop tools for the prediction of the distribution of drug compounds in the human body. There is currently no experimental high throughput screening (HTS) method for determining compound tissue distribution. A drug compound's propensity to be taken up by different tissues and organs affects whether it will reach its acti ...

  6. Low-cost custom microarray synthesis

    SBC: BIODISCOVERY LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this project our goal is to develop and commercialize a very low cost microarray chip fabrication technology to reduce the cost by as much as a factor of ten and enable the use of microarrays by groups who can not afford the current generation of microarrays. Our technology combines the standard acid labile DMT protection group containing nucleophosphoramidi ...

  7. Cancer Cluster Morphology

    SBC: BIO-ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR Phase I project will develop methods, software and instructional materials for the accurate detection and description of cancer clusters and hotspots. Present state-of-the-art often relies on methods that were defined over a decade ago, do not accurately describe cluster morphology (e.g. shape, excess risk, and boundaries) and that are known to miscla ...

  8. Carboxylated polysaccharides for drug delivery to the eye

    SBC: BIOPOLYMER INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many Americans suffer from ocular diseases which require application of topical therapeutic agents. These diseases range from bacterial conjunctivitis to intraocular inflammation. Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eye) affects nearly 30 million people. Glaucoma affects 2 to 3 million Americans. Topical treatments exist but their ability to deliver drugs to the ey ...

  9. Web-Based Program for Symptom Management in Fibromyalgia

    SBC: Collinge And Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fibromyalgia (FM) is a complex chronic illness with no known medical cure. Its management depends heavily on the patient's daily efforts in lifestyle, behavior and self-care. Self-monitoring is key to effective self-management but is especially challenging in FM due to the impact of fatigue and cognitive symptoms. Based on a cognitive-behavioral approach, this ...

  10. Improved Dehydration Process for Pharmaceutical Synthesis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most pharmaceutical synthesis involve condensation or dehydration reactions at some point in the process that generates water as a by-product. This water must be removed since (1) water is often not a desirable component of the finished product, (2) water limits conversion to final product, and (3) water generated slows the reaction rate. Many Pharmaceuticals h ...
