  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  6. Industrial Crystallization Facility for Nonlinear Optical Materials

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: H8

    Made In Space, Inc. (MIS) proposes the development, to a critical design level, of an Industrial Crystal Facility (ICF) for microgravity product manufacturing and applied research. The ICF is focused on advanced materials engineering, rather than biomedical research, and expands utilization of the ISS into new product areas not previously investigated. Intended applications include nonlinear optic ...
