  1. Non-invasive Telemetric Assessment of Gut Microbiota Activity in Situ

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHA17A004

    Physical, mental, and environmental stress, as well as diet and hydration have an impact on overall health, performance, and well-being of humans. These factors all affect the composition and metabolism of the microbiota in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The mix of microorganisms in the gut, and their metabolic transformation of food, can alter the overall health and physiology of the host. Me ...

  3. Field portable Coliform Bacteria and Escherichia Coli RNA expression LAMP-OSD detection system

    SBC: Fabrico Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17004

    Fabrico Technology and Professor Andrew Ellington of the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to develop an in-field detection platform based on a novel variation of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). The proposed reaction works by utilizing a patent pending oligonucleotide strand displacing (OSD) probe which functions for LAMP in much the same way as a TaqMan probe functions for q ...

  5. High Affinity DNA Aptamer Reagents to Detect Shigella spp. and Non-Typhoidal Salmonella

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: DHP163005

    Operational Technologies Corp. (OpTech) proposes to screen its existing patented Salmonella enterica DNA aptamers (U.S. Application No. 13/136,820, issued) against a number of typhoidal and non-typhoidal Salmonella enterica serovars to determine the level of crossreactivity with the goal of detecting only non-typhoidal Salmonella. Aptamers have demonstrated the potential for greater affinity (assa ...

  6. A Hand-Held Non-Contact Burn Triage System Utilizing Visible and Thermographic Imaging in 3D.

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: DHP16C005

    Thermal injuries are common in all modern military conflicts and care given shortly after a severe burn is critical to its treatment and recovery. Triage for burn injuries is primarily separated into superficial burns which will heal naturally, and deep burns which require surgery. In far-forward environments non-expert combat medics must make burn triage decisions without the aid of lab equipment ...

  7. Universal Plasma Generator for Selective Removal of Anti-A and Anti-B Antibodies from Donor Plasma

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP15B001

    Traumatic injury accounts for 14.2% of all fatalities. Clinical management of trauma often requires massive plasma transfusions. However, in critical combat casualty care or in civilian emergency trauma care, plasma of compatible blood group may not be readily available. Transfusion with incompatible plasma may result in potentially fatal hemagglutination in the recipient. Typeless or universal pl ...

  8. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...
