  1. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  2. Novel Vector Survaillance Trap for Flying Insects

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP12007

    Civilian and military organizations throughout the world perform surveillance to combat vector-borne disease. Of particular concern to the U.S. military are mosquito genera Anopheles, Aedes and Culex, which are important vectors for malaria, dengue and West Nile virus respectively, and sand fly genera Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia, both vectors for leishmaniasis. The trap most commonly used for by U.S ...

  3. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15014

    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  4. Avoiding the Ice Cryolesion in Tissue Cryopreservation with Ice Modulators

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15013

    The long term goal of the proposed research is to develop improved methods for cryopreservation of complex tissues at extreme low temperature. An innovative approach is taken in the proposed line of research, where synthetic ice modulators (SIMs) are combined with established cryoprotective agent (CPA) cocktails to create more favorable conditions for cryopreservation in a process known as vitrifi ...

  5. Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols in Building Protection Applications

    SBC: MILOW LTD.            Topic: CBD12107

    This proposal presents a method and technology for continuous ionization of bio-aerosols and airborne particles in building protection applications to enable effective removal of the ionized particles from the air flow by an electrostatic collection device. The proposed ionization method is based on a concept of combining a novel method of direct induction charging by an electric field with divers ...

  6. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  7. Responsive Sequestration Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: CBD13101

    TDA Research, Inc. and the University of Colorado at Boulder will team together to develop a responsive sequestration coating for chemical warfare agents. The coating will be easily applied to surfaces where it will cover and contain chemical warfare agents on vehicles or other hardware known or suspected to be contaminated. A color change of the coating will indicate locations of underlying surf ...

  8. ARCH Technology for a Simple, Resilient, and Cost-Effective Auto- Injector

    SBC: AKTIVAX, INC.            Topic: CBD13106

    A prefilled auto-injector device for storing a beneficial agent in a dry and stable format alongside a diluent, and automatically delivering the beneficial agent to a patient after reconstitution. The device comprises an automatic needle insertion mechanism and automatic needle retraction mechanism and is safe and disabled after use. The primary drug container of the auto-injector is made from ...
