  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 ...

  5. Detecting Metals in Ambient Particulate Matter: X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis of High Impaction Deposits.

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA2

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a prototype instrument capable of performing specialized elemental speciation of ambient particulate matter (PM) in near real time (1-hour batch collection/analyses). The prototype monitor will incorporate high-volume impaction and x-ray fluorescence technology to accomplish the stated task. Through previous research, Rupprecht & ...

  6. Reformat Current NON-TOXIC Hard Surface Sanitizer Formulation to Inactivate and Kill B. Anthraces and Other Bio-Warfare Pathogens

    SBC: Bluewillow Biologics, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA4

    Antimicrobial nanoemulsion technology was developed by Dr. James Baker at the University of Michigan Medical School over a period of 5 years. That research was funded by grants from the Defense Advanced Research Programs Agency (DARPA). DARPA identified a need for a nontoxic, noncorrosive, biodefense decontamination material that can decontaminate equipment, personnel, structures, and ...

  7. Microdischarge-Based Multi-Metal Emission Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERC2

    Caviton, Inc., has developed an ideal microsensor for the continuous monitoring of multiple metals. These detection systems rely on microdischarge technology (patent pending), utilizing the power of emission spectroscopy for parts per billion-level sensitivity and laboratory instrument-level selectivity. Microdischarge sensors provide real-time continuous monitoring of metals (and othe ...

  8. Micro-discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can b detected and the focus of this Phase II project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, then move to field tests of sampling and analysis. Finall ...
