  1. Non-Destructive Test Method for Rapid Determination of the Chemical Composition of Concrete in Field

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 122FH2

    While thorough assessment of concrete chemistry is vital to evaluating the health of (transportation) infrastructure systems, the costly and time-consuming nature of available chemical analysis methods limit their applications. A nondestructive test method will be developed for thorough evaluation of concrete chemistry and deterioration conditions at different depths. An analytical chemistry metho ...

    SBIR Phase I 2012 Department of Transportation

    SBC: ORIGINUS, INC.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many prescribed drugs exhibit drug-drug interactions due to up-regulation or inhibition of specific P450 enzymes. According to a recent guidance from the FDA, CYP1A2, CYP2B6, and CYP3A4 induction should be evaluated inat least an in vitro system. Enzymatic activity in freshly isolated hepatocytes is the Gold Standard for studying P450 induction; however, it ...

  6. High Throughput 3D Cell Assay for Metastatic Prostate Cancer

    SBC: 3D BIOMATRIX, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in United States men. Despite recent advances, prostate cancer mortality still remains high due to the emergence of therapy-resistant cancer cells that metastasize. This lack of effective therapies against metastatic cancer exists, at least in part, because of lack of drug screening platforms that address the u ...

  10. Advancing patient call light systems to achieve better outcomes

    SBC: Patient Provider Communications, Inc.            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current nurse call systems lack patient-centric interfaces (i.e. pillow speakers) and the ability to relay specific requests to the most appropriat providers, which negatively impacts operational efficiency. Further, existing systems neither provide a means for limited English proficiency (LEP) patients to make call requests in their native language nor the abi ...
