  1. Portable System for Sample Preparation and Differentiation of Pathogens at Strain Level

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD04107

    During the anthrax attacks in 2001, investigators had difficulty in differentiating the strains apart because B. anthracis has a low level of genetic variability. This event demonstrated the need for rapid and precise molecular subtyping technologies. Lynntech proposes to develop an ultra-sensitive quantum dots-based molecular beacon fluorogenic reporter system to identify the presence of specif ...

  2. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and long-term mo ...

  3. Environmentally Safe Wood Preservatives

    SBC: NOVAFLUX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to study a new class of environmentally safe wood preservatives based on cation-anion complexes with antimicrobial activities. The proposed cations include: (1) biguanide/polybiguanide derivatives, (2) polyionenes (polyquats), and (3) quaternary ammonium salts. The associated anions needed to form the complex will be selected from triclosan, tribromo ...

  6. An Artificial Neural Network and Optimization Methodology for Detecting and Managing Terrorist Attack Against Water Distribution Systems

    SBC: Neural Optimization Applied Hydrology, LLC            Topic: C3NCERB4

    The goals of this Phase I research project are to investigate the feasibility of using an artificial neural network (ANN) and an optimization-based water distribution security system ("smart security") for accurately detecting contamination events, and given the nature of the threat, identify optimal crisis management decisions that minimize the threat and maintain a safe ...

  7. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptmer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) proce ...

  10. Magnetic Concentrator & Cartridge System to Enhance Food Safety

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: CBD04108

    Foodborne pathogen detection has always been faced with volume and matrix problems, i.e., low numbers of viral or bacterial pathogens in a large volume of solid or liquid foods that are still potentially infectious. Despite sensitive techniques such as PCR and immunomagnetic-electrochemiluminescence (IM-ECL), there still exists a need to concentrate and semi-purify pathogens from large (liter) vo ...
