  1. Planar Lightwave Circuit based Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering Spectrometer wit

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this small business technology transfer research (STTR) program, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop a planar lightwave circuit based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectrometer for single molecule detection. The sensitivity of the SERS spectrometer comes from the 5-nm gap between gold nanowires, which can achieve ...

  2. Development of a BBB Model to Study Transendothelial Cell Migration

    SBC: Flocel Inc.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Increasing evidence indicates that systemic inflammation and the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which becomes the target of overreacting or misguided immune cells that determine BBB failure and immune extravasations into the brain parenchyma, are involved in the pathogenesis of neurological diseases such as meningitis, inflammation, Alzheimer's disease, and multipl ...

  3. Remote focusing through spatial light modulation for multifocal multiphoton micro

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nonlinear optical microscopy techniques (such as two-photon florescence) are being used to acquire volumetric (i.e. three dimensional) images that probe several hundred microns into scattering tissue. These techniques are being combined with fast acquisition schemes to allow imaging of live, moving specimens at high NA. This combination allows for high-resoluti ...

  4. Evaluation of Airborne Particle Emissions from Commercial Products Containing Eng

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This multiphase STTR project will result in a standard method to evaluate the release of airborne particles from commercial products that contain engineered nanomaterials during their use or disposal. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are an important class of engineered nanomaterials that are incorporated into diverse products such as sporting goods, clothes, electronic ...

  5. human Microvessel Culture System (hMCS)

    SBC: ANGIOMICS, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Human Microvessel Culture System (hMCS) Angiogenesis-targeting therapies, either inhibiting or promoting new vessel growth, have the potential for treating numerous diseases including cancer, eye diseases, cardiac and peripheral vascular disease, skin disorders, fibro-proliferative diseases, and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. Furthermore, growing ev ...

  6. Development of an Electromyographically Controlled Electrolarynx Voice Prosthesis

    SBC: GRIFFIN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: NIDCD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The most common artificial voice source for post-laryngectomy speech rehabilitation is the hand-held buzzer or electrolarynx (EL). This device is relatively easy to use and enables most laryngectomees to verbally communicate, but with reduced intelligibility and markedly degraded naturalness. In addition, EL speech is often described as robotic and monotone, at ...

  7. Low-Cost, Noninvasive Liver Iron Measurements in African American Iron Overload

    SBC: Avrin, William F.            Topic: NIMHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR program will test the utility of a low-cost device for noninvasive liver iron measurements, by using the device to determine the prevalence of iron overload in African Americans. African American iron overload is both an under-studied health issue in a medically underserved population, and an example of the wider problem of mild to moderate iron overl ...

  8. Fluorescence Intensity-Based Scoring of Macromolecule Crystallization Plates

    SBC: iXpressGenes, Inc.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Crystallization, followed by subsequent structure determination, is a major step in understanding the structure-function relationship of macromolecules. Understanding macromolecule structure has become a key part in the development of new pharmaceuticals, and is a major area of NIH research. Crystallization however is also the rate limiting step, despite techn ...

  9. Synchronous Valveless Pulsatile Support Device for the Failing Heart

    SBC: WINDMILL CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heart failure (HF) is a major health problem in the US and worldwide. Over 100,000 people in the US are diagnosed with end stage HF annually. Heart transplantation is performed in only 2% of these cases due to lack of available donor hearts. Mechanical left ventricular assist devices (LVADs, a type of artificial heart) can allow patients with severe HF to live ...

  10. A cost-effective bioreactor to advance functional tissue engineering of cartilage

    SBC: APEX BIOMEDICAL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States. A clinical goal in the treatment and prevention of OA is to develop replacement cartilage using tissue engineering (TE) technologies. Although TE cartilage presently lacks the mechanical stability of native cartilage, studies have demonstrated that mechanical stability can be e ...
