  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. Self-Detoxifying, Disposable Protective Garments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD06108

    There are many types of limited use or disposable protective garments and apparel designed to inhibit/retard the passage of hazardous liquids and biological contaminates through the garment to the wearer. The current state-of-the-art Chem-Bio protective suits contain carbon-beads layered into textile materials which adsorb toxic liquids and vapors. However, activated carbon imparts only partial p ...

  3. Reagentless and Realtime Detection of Airborne Microorganisms

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD06102

    The potential use of chemical and biological weapons for mass destruction is one of the most serious concerns facing the US defense forces. Currently available devices for collection and identification of biological agents require extensive sample preparation and well equipped laboratories. Other detection methods rely on fragile biomolecules like antibodies, nucleic acids, enzymes and/or other ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Environmentally Benign Production of Nanoscale Materials

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed sorbents will have potential applications in i) industrial wastewater treatment plants, ii) municipal wastewater treatment plants, iii) nuclear waste treatment plants, iv) drinking water treatment plants, v) several types of existing point-of-use and point-of-entry water purifying systems, and vi) for remediation of various mercury contaminated sites using permeable reactive barrier ( ...

  6. Real-time Reagentless and Arrayed Detector for the Monitoring of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occur in aquatic environments when conditions trigger an increase in the abundance of organisms that produce toxins. The toxins are transferred through the food web where they affect and even kill zooplankton, shellfish, fish, birds, marine mammals, and possibly humans. HABs have been estimated to cost the U.S. economy as much as $50 million per year due to the closure ...

  7. A Low-Impact Delivery System for In-Situ Treatment of Contaminated Sediment

    SBC: Menzie-Cura & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A low-impact delivery system for in-situ treatment if contaminated sediment is proposed. Unlike most conventional delivery systems that rely on injection or mechanical mixing of sediment, the proposed approach make use of natural mixing (bioturbation) processes to work treatment materials into the biologically-active zone. To accomplish this, agglomerates will be developed with the following pro ...

  9. Real-Time, Reagentless, and Arrayed Detector for the Monitoring of Harmful Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occur in aquatic environments when conditions trigger an increase in the abundance of organisms that produce toxins. The toxins are transferred through the food web where they affect and even kill zooplankton, shellfish, fish, birds, marine mammals, and possibly humans. HABs have been estimated to cost the United States as much as $50 million per year as ...

  10. FRET-Aptamer Assays & Handheld Reader for Nerve Agent Metabolites

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: CBD06104

    Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the speed and ultrasensitivity of one-step (“bind and detect”) fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) detection with the high affinity and selectivity of DNA aptamers (surrogate antibodies) to detect the phosphonic acid derivative metabolites of organophosphorous nerve agents in urine, blood, and other body fluids. In Pha ...
