  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. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Biotech SE, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Landfills and waterways are inundated with tons of nondegradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified that can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics at the same price as other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the Phase I project will ...

  4. Novel Feedstock for Biodegradable Plastic

    SBC: Montana Polysaccharides Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Landfills and waterway are inundated with tons of non-degradable plastics derived from petrochemicals. An unusual polysaccharide has been identified which can be extruded as a biodegradable plastic. Unique properties allow it to replace certain petroleum-based plastics while already meeting the price of other bioplastics. To gain quick acceptance, details of the process developed during the pro ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Large-Scale Production of Stearidonic Acid from Microalgae for Human Health

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project demonstrates the feasibility of producing stearidonic acid from microalgae for human consumption to combat cardiovascular diseases (CVD). The cardiovascular benefits of fish oil enriched in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) are well-documented. Despite overwhelming evidence and strong recommendations supporting the health ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: A Perchlorate Bioassay

    SBC: BioInsite            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop a sensitive and cost effective colorimetric bioassay for perchlorate determination in environmental samples. Perchlorate is known to affect thyroid hormone production potentially leading to neuropsychological development deficiencies. The technique proposed will take advantage of the reported ability of the nitrate reductase e ...
