  1. Handheld Multianalyte Biosensor Platform

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: HSB052001

    The overall goal of this project is to develop a handheld biosensor for rapid and sensitive detection of multiple biological analytes. The project primarily addresses the needs of first responders for detection of bioterrorism agents directly at the site of suspected attack. TIRF Technologies proposes to develop such handheld biosensor based on total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) combine ...

  2. A Novel Fractionation and Concentration System for Preparation Improved Biological Detection

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: HSB0111002

    Detection of bioaerosols is a cornerstone in the protection of our nation from bioterrorist events. Rapid bioaerosol detection systems have advanced dramatically in recent years, but the lack of integratable automated sample preparation for these systems remains a major deficiency. Three significant issues associated with current sample preparation components in these systems are (a) a lack of an ...

  3. Assess Ability to use Eye Tracking and Pupil Dialtion to Determine Intent to Deceive- Phase II

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: HSB081001

    We propose to run 3 experiments to refine and utilize measures of oculomotor activity and pupil diameter change to assess an individual`s malicious or deceptive intent. We also propose to concurrently develop the software and determine the hardware necessary for online, real-time assessment of malintent based on prior research results and the results of the proposed experiments. In addition to ocu ...

  4. 3WEAVE Fabric/Composite Panels for Blast Protection

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: HSB082001

    Based on the results of the Phase I project, it was shown that 3TEX`s unitary 3D woven E-Glass billet reinforced composite panels have excellent potential to be used as blast mitigating material for protecting buildings. Fibers and resins used in the Phase I were selected with affordability and fire resistance as the major considerations. In the Phase II effort proposed, the same fiber and resin ...

  5. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequencer for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: HSB091001

    Advanced Liquid Logic proposes to develop a low-cost and rapid biometric system based on DNA. Using a miniaturized DNA sequencing format the device will enable DNA-based identification of individuals as well as determination of family relationships (kinship) between individuals. The system will be implemented using Advanced Liquid Logic`s proprietary Digital Microfluidics technology, which is base ...

  6. WEARABLE THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS

    SBC: Perpetua Power Source Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB092008

    The human body is a near perfect energy generator. Demand for energy harvesting innovation, along with technology advances in thin film thermoelectric generators and highly efficient DC/DC boost circuitry now place wearable thermoelectric power harvesting within reach. The objective of Perpetua`s Phase II proposal is to deliver an energy harvesting system for first responder applications power ...

  7. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: 9050868TT

    Currently, there are over 10,000 MRI scanners used in the US alone. US citizens today are mobile and many times medical treatments may require MRI scans from several different facilities. Images from MRI scanners can also drift over time. There is a tremendous need for all medical imaging scanners to be on the same level. Sigma-K will develop the commercialization of the ISMRM/NIST MRI Calibration ...

  8. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  9. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  10. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    A DNA sequencer for biometric applications will be developed. The system will enable rapid and low-cost identification of individuals and kinship verification using a self-contained and portable device. All process steps from DNA extraction to DNA sequencing will be automatically performed within the disposable single-use cartridge. This high-level of functional integration is made possible by Adv ...
