  3. SBIR Phase I: SERS Enhanced Ligase Detection Reaction Chip for the Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer

    SBC: Illuminaria LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop an entirely new platform for the molecular diagnostics of cancer exploiting a new Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) enhanced Ligase Detection Reaction (LDR) and an optically active microfluidic chip. Since every dye has a unique Raman fingerprint, the number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that can ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Using Mycelium As A Matrix For Binding Natural Fibers And Core Filler Materials In Sustainable Composites

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to address the steadily growing but unsustainable polymer matrix composite (PMC) market. PMCs are leveraged for their high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as compared to conventional engineering materials, but are notoriously unsustainable, energy-intensive to manufacture, and non-recyclable. Researchers have investiga ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Surface Texturing For Inhibiting Bacterial Biofilm Formation (Machining Process And Machine Tool System Development)

    SBC: MICROLUTION, INC.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will enable the manufacture of Sharklet patterns on metallic surfaces. A Sharklet pattern is an engineered micro-surface texture that mimics the texture of shark skin and inhibits bacterial biofilm growth without the use of anti-microbial agents. The Sharklet surface texture technology has been successfully produced in soft materials u ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: An Automated Data Mining System for Analysis of Microcirculation Videos

    SBC: Signal Processing Technologies LLC            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focused on real-time automated data mining of medical videos. These videos are of increasing importance, particularly in applications such as real-time decision making based on video recordings of networks of blood vessels. The proposed research addresses the real-time knowledge discovery from large volumes of complex video signals, for the g ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Novel Apparatus for Producing High-Purity Lithium Metal

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS COMPANY INC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine feasibility of using new technology to produce high purity lithium metal. The existing energy-intensive production method operates at 460C, has changed little in over 100 years and requires over 35 kWh/kg of lithium metal. The purity of the product is very dependent on the feed material with high purity lithium produced ...
