  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. A TEQ Based Dioxin Kit Utilizing Fluorescent Aptamers

    SBC: Eno River Labs, LLC            Topic: 05NCERC3

    Eno River Labs, LLC, (ERL) proposes to develop an onsite testing kit for dioxins that uses fluorescently tagged ssDNA aptamers for selective binding and subsequent screening and quantitative analysis of dioxin in soil sample.  Current dioxin field test kits are immunoassay based, which are insufficiently specific and sometimes unreliable.  Reliable dioxin testing requires la ...

  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. A Compact, Low-Cost, Near-UV Sensor for Chlorine Dioxide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD6

    Southwest Sciences proposes the development of an optical, near-ultraviolet chlorine dioxide (ClO2) sensor having a measurement range of about 0.01 to 2000 ppm with a response time of less than 10 seconds. The sensor will be compact—about the size of a 1-quart milk carton including electronic and optics, operate at low power, and be outfitted with a wireless communications interface to permi ...

  5. POE/POU Akaganeite Treatment Systems for the Removal of Arsenic from Drinking Water

    SBC: LaSys, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD7

    Using the unique spectral characteristics of its proprietary fractal-microcavity composite, LaSys, Inc., will perform the proof-of-concept research required to develop an ultra-sensitive optical detector of low concentration of arsenic in water based on the Raman effect. The Phase I technical objectives are designed to demonstrate that fractal microcavity composite-surface-enhanced ...
