  1. Improved Rapid Detection of Viable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: 05NCERA2

    Innovative Biotechnologies International, Inc., has reported previously a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence-Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposome nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology.  This assay system is based on the ability to immunocapture low nu ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    We have previously reported a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposme nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology. This assay system is based upon the ability to immunocapture low numbers (i.e., five or more) oocysts and heat shock them to induc ...

  7. Superconducting RF Photocathode Gun for Low Emittance Polarized ELectron Beams

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 37

    A radio frequency (RF) photoemission source that delivers polarized electrons at low emittance would be an attractive electron source for a linear collider. Moreover, it has been demonstrated recently that such a source, in conjunction with nearby injection-system optics, can deliver a beam with a high ratio of transverse emittances, leading to a simplification or elimination of a linear collider ...

  8. Nano-Engineered High Current Density YBCO Superconducting Wires

    SBC: AMBP Technology Corporation            Topic: 03

    Second generation, coated superconductor wires (YBCO material), needed for electricity transmission, have demonstrated the ability to produce 100 Amp, long-length conductors at approximately 10 times the cost of copper wires. This cost is unacceptable. In order to meet the DOE¿s cost target of $10/kA-m, significant improvements in current-carrying-density capability will be required, with a tar ...

  9. Advanced H-/D- Surface Plasma Source with Helicon Discharge Plasma Generator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: 48

    For the past several years, government laboratories and industrial companies in many countries around the world have had ongoing research programs to develop negative ion sources with upgraded intensity, emittance, and lifetime. However, their research has not resulted in a source that can deliver the desired parameters. This project will develop an advanced Surface Plasma Negative Ion Source wi ...

  10. Cost-Effective Acoustic-Stirling Cryocooler with Flexibly Attached Remote Coldhead

    SBC: CLEVER FELLOWS INNOVATION CONSORTIUM            Topic: 04

    High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) devices, needed for the modernization and expansion of America¿s electricity delivery system, require efficient, reliable, and affordable cryogenic cooling of large cryostats. Commercial cryocoolers of appropriate capacity and temperature for transformers and cables miss the target on one or more of these parameters. This project will continue the developm ...
