  2. STTR Phase I: Rapid Diagnosis of Tuberculosis at the Point of Care Using a Handheld Volatile Biomarker Sensor

    SBC: NanoSynth Materials and Sensors Inc.            Topic: EB

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to develop an inexpensive and rapid sensing technology for detection of tuberculosis (TB) at the point of care (POC). Rapid screening of TB in rural areas is difficult because current diagnostic methods are expensive, time consuming (several days to weeks), and require specialized equipment (laboratories and hospitals) that are not ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Chronically implantable sensor array for optimal studies of human diseases in mouse models

    SBC: BLACKROCK MICROSYSTEMS            Topic: EB

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I Project aims to optimize and test prototypes of continuous, multi-analyte sensors based on stimuli-responsive hydrogels. The proposed sensor array will be capable of monitoring multiple biomarkers relevant to several common human diseases such as diabetes, ketoacidosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and even obesity. During this ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...
