  2. Development of a universal method for diagnostic sample inactivation, extraction and enrichment of pathogens in arthropod hosts

    SBC: PRESSURE BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: OSD09H19

    We propose to develop an easy-to-use, safe, automated, field-portable high-throughput system, with related methods and consumables, to allow for the simultaneous inactivation and extraction of target molecules from pathogenic organisms, such as viruses, and rickettsia and non-rickettsial bacteria, that propagate and/or disseminate in arthropod hosts (herein referred to as Agents). The proposed Sys ...

  5. Helping Amputees though Virtual Environments (HAVEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H04

    Peer support for Warfighters who have suffered traumatic amputation can significantly improve recovery. While peer support is readily available in military treatment facilities (MTFs), veterans with these injuries must continue recovery after leaving the MTF. Unfortunately, veterans in remote areas may not have reasonable access to a MTF or a veterans"affairs medical center (VAMC) where in-person ...

  6. Large depth, ultrahigh resolution, ultrahigh speed PS-OCT for burn assessment

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: OSD11H03

    Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is an imaging modality used to assess burn wound by imaging the collagen of the human skin. Agiltron propose an ultrahigh speed, ultrahigh resolution, and deep depth PS-OCT system using novel tunable laser technology. The PS-OCT imager will feature a portable design with a turn-key OCT engine and a fiber-guided handheld sample scanner. ...

  7. Combined Confocal Microscopy-Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Approach for Burn Assessment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H03

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with Lucid, Inc. proposes to investigate combined reflectance confocal microscopy-polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (RCM-PSOCT) for in vivo diagnosis of skin burns. While RCM provides en face images with nuclear-level resolution in superficial skin, to depths of about 200 m, OCT provides cross-sectional images with structural-level ...

  9. Evidence-Based Evaluation Process for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Co-morbid Psychological Disorders in Service Members

    SBC: JXT Applications, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H07

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is associated with emotional and physical health problems, of which PTSD and depression are important mediators. Our Phase I research created a conceptual model for a user-friendly, empirically-based screening/tracking tool available to first responders and medical practitioners to screen for mTBI or other disorders. We assessed the co-occurrence of these co-mo ...
