  1. Aptamer Enhanced Biorecognition Reagent System


    OmniSite proposes to continue Phase I effort to develop aptamer-based assays to anthrax spores and SEB for detection instruments based on ECL, FP, and FRET formats. OmniSite will compare the different assay formats to determine which of thesedemonstrates the most sensitivity and specificity, as well as being robust, cost effective, and facile. Performance characteristics of the most sensitive ...

  2. Regenerable Carbon Dioxide Removal Technology Based on Novel Macroporous Ion Exchange Resins for Closed-Circuit Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12106

    Currently, the U.S. Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, yet still maintain isolation from chemical and biological contaminants as well as hazardous materials. This requires the soldiers"respiratory tract be isolated from encountering these contaminants. To accomplish this, the soldiers wear protective suits and/or masks which include a respiratory isolatio ...

  3. A Novel Approach for Spectral Unmixing and Classification of Chemical and Biological Agents

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Besides performing a thorough statistical analysis of the government furnished data sets to determine the features and metrics for spectral unmixing, Intelligent Automation, Inc. and Prof. C. Chang of University of Maryland at Baltimore County also proposean innovative approach to detect and classify chemical and biological agents. There are two major steps. First, we propose to apply a recently d ...

  4. Portable System for Sample Preparation and Differentiation of Pathogens at Strain Level

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD04107

    During the anthrax attacks in 2001, investigators had difficulty in differentiating the strains apart because B. anthracis has a low level of genetic variability. This event demonstrated the need for rapid and precise molecular subtyping technologies. Lynntech proposes to develop an ultra-sensitive quantum dots-based molecular beacon fluorogenic reporter system to identify the presence of specif ...

  5. Rapid Sample Transport in Austere Environments

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: CBD12108

    Attaining rapid transportation of samples 50-1000 miles in an austere environment requires air transportation. Past applications have included UAV"s which transport the sample to selected location and drop the sample via guided parachute These systems can be quite accurate but they are expensive and relatively large. Balloons are an attractive alternative. They are inexpensive, compact and can be ...

  6. Mobile Reader App and Internet Software for Chem-Bio Surveillance

    SBC: Celadon Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: CBD13102

    Chem-bio attacks are a threat to U.S. military personnel and civilians. While there exist field detection assays and associated mobile readers, it remains imperative to develop next-generation readers that are location-aware, multi-format, and cellular-capable. A compelling platform that has already led to several next-generation readers is smartphones and tablets. These devices provide key elemen ...

  7. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System For Stand Off Chemical Detection


    We propose an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) spectropolarimetric imaging system for enhanced standoff chemical detection in the Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) wavelength region. The AOTF has no moving parts, making it a rugged and reliable device, and it provides polarimetric imaging capabilities, which enhances its chemical detection capabilities. We have been actively researching suitable mater ...

  8. Development Of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Array For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots


    We propose to develop low cost LWIR FPAs using colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) of II-VI semi-metallic compounds. Brimrose has experience in the area of II-VI semiconductor QD synthesis and LWIR detector fabrication using narrow band gap semiconductor materials. Research Triangle Institute (RTI) in NC has experience in building FPAs using CQDs, and to the best of our knowledge is the only institute ...

  9. Unpressurized High Density Oxygen Storage with Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12105

    Closed circuit breathing apparatus (CCBA, rebreather systems) where exhaled CO2 is removed and con-sumed oxygen replaced, offer much longer working times on a single gas charge than open circuit ones (SCBA). This is achieved through the use of high pressure compressed oxygen. When CCBA units are used in conflict areas this requires the regular delivery of hazardous cargo (high pressure oxygen, 3 ...

  10. RNAi screening for Identification of Compounds to Induce Suspended Animation or Hypometabolism

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    While the phenomenon of suspended animation has not been widely studied in humans, there are many anecdotal and medically verified examples of humans being in a state that is comparable to suspended animation when they have been accidentally nearly frozenfor short periods of time. There could be many advantages to inducing suspended animation or hypometabolism in humans such as extending survival ...
