  1. High-Throughput Manufacturing Methods for Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 9010368R

    This project focuses on developing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent that may increase the detection of tagged cells by a factor of 10-100. The ability to noninvasively track specifically labeled (tagged) cells, enables a researcher or medical treatment professional to dynamically monitor the delivery and targeted application of medicinal and bio-reactive agents.

  2. Optimization of the NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 9030268R

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare. To address this issue, a standardized test of the ...

  3. Security & Safety Co-Analysis Tool Environment

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: DHP15004

    Health Delivery Organizations, including the Military Health System, are increasingly using networked medical devices to benefit from improved information accuracy, lowered costs, and improved patient outcomes. These benefits, however, are threatened by the security risks posed by the interactions between the networked devices, and their connection to IT systems which are at risk of cyber attack. ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to use the Phase I SBIR as a vehicle to develop and market a commercially viable 25kW flowing water optical power meter (FWOPM) for industrial, research, and government applications. Building upon existing and fundamentally sound NIST design, and without sacrificing quality or accuracy, HPD will reduce costs and increase manufacturability using best prac ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Ear Protection Validation System

    SBC: Benson Medical Instruments Company            Topic: DHP12009

    This proposal contains the description for a hearing protection device (HPD) fit-test instrument, the CCA-200fit. The CCA-200fit has the capability to determine if an individual is receiving effective noise protection from an HPD. The CCA-200fit also has training capabilities via a display, audio, and a touchscreen which will allow it to provide instruction, feedback, and results to the individual ...
