  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. 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. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: 05NCERD5

    Vegetated roofs (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past 5 years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design green building rating system offering multiple ...

  4. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    MixZon, Inc., hypothesizes that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on an unmanned tethered helium balloon accessible via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. MixZon will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground-based network to monitor and control balloon-mounted, IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distri ...

  5. Silver coatings to combat catheter associated infections

    SBC: ACRYMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Abstract Indwelling catheterization is a leading cause of nosocomial infections that present an enormous drain of health care funding in the US. Clinical infections associated with urinary catheterization have been estimated to add more than $1000 to patient care. Those that occur with central venous catheterization escalate the cost to between $35,000 and $50, ...

  6. Retinoids as Novel Treatment of Ischemic Stroke

    SBC: ACRYMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and a major source of disability. Ischemic stroke, the most common type, is associated with a dramatic increase in calcium influx in brain tissue, an increased production in reactive oxygen species (ROS), cell death and inflammation. Studies by the PI have shown that retinoids block neuronal voltage-gated c ...

  7. Transdermal GnRH Delivery System to Treat Infertility


    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 ...

  8. Open, Flexible Platform for CAM Adherence Monitoring and Mind-Body Investigations

    SBC: AMES TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There are very few proven biological markers to support complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) adherence investigations. Most tools currently available to CAM investigators are oriented to bio-feedback techniques and of little proven efficacy for use in quantitative research investigations. To support their work, CAM investigators need tools and technolog ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
