  3. Portable automation technology for rapid detection of foodborne pathogens

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: 85

    According to a report by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2011, approximately 48 million Americans get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die each year from food poisoning, also known as foodborne illness. Bacteria are the source of many food poisoning cases because they can multiply and spread in foods that are contaminated. Symptoms of food poisoning can vary and develop ...

  9. Topic 345: RadTox- Measuring Radiation Toxicity using Circulating DNA

    SBC: DiaCarta, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    The QuantiDNA RadTox System is a unique, patented technology that measures tissue damage shortly following injury using cell-free DNA from a drop of blood. Premised on murine and primate studies showing circulating DNA is logarithmically increased with whole-body radiation dose, RadTox has the potential to overcome many of the species-specific challenges faced by biomarker panels. The phase I SBIR ...

  10. Topic 349: Quantum Dot FRET Immunoassay to Quantify Intramolecular Epitopes of Analytes in Tissue Sections

    SBC: Ocean Nano Tech LLC            Topic: NCI

    This proposal is to develop a novel slide based proximity assay platform to quantify protein phosphorylation on tissues. The novelty of this assay platform is derived from the use of the quantum dot with two emission peaks for fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET): one emission as internal standard and the other as FRET donor. Change of ratio of the two emission intensity during the FRET c ...
