  1. Microfluidic High-throughput Platform for Determining of Kinetic Constants of Enzyme Variants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10107

    Molecular biology techniques allow generating combinatorial libraries of large number of enzyme variants. However, there is currently no technology available for screening the enzyme libraries for identifying variants with improved activity for the substrate. We propose to develop a novel, microfluidic, high-throughput platform for determining kinetic constants of enzyme variants and identifying v ...

  2. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development programs are severely limited by the expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from the in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference in testing from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device for quantitati ...

  3. In vitro Models Suitable for High-throughput Screening of Drug Toxicities in Human Tissues

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: CBD10103

    The drug R&D cycle is long and very expensive. In many ways, this status quo can no longer be sustained. One of the reasons for such great cost is that the vast majority of drug candidates are screened out at the stages of animal and human trials. More efficient methods of testing of drugs at the stage of ex-vivo studies, which are substantially less expensive than animal and human testing cyc ...

  4. AC Impedance Sensor for Collective Protection Filter Residual Life Indicator

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc.            Topic: CBD10106

    Guild Associates, Inc. proposes to develop and evaluate an active electrochemical sensor based residual life indicator (RLI) for adsorptive carbon filters. The sensing system of the RLI will operate by analyzing the electrochemical state of the carbon within the filter and evaluate the remaining adsorptive reactive capacities of the filter. The sensor design will be challenged against an array of ...

  5. An automated, high throughput, resin-free device for large scale protein purification

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12102

    Protein manufacturing is of paramount importance to chemical and biological defense applications. High-throughput protein purification is a critical need for rapidly scaling the target protein product. Existing purification methods primarly rely on synthetic-resin based chromatography, which is time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and consequently, ill-suited for developing rapid countermea ...

  6. Rapid Sample Transport in Austere Environments

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: CBD12108

    Piasecki Aircraft proposes to meet the challenge of delivering a biological or chemical sample maintained at less than -20 deg Celcius over a range of up to 1000 miles with a precision landing with a portable unmanned aerial system capable of a vertical takeoff, cruise flight range typical of a fixed wing platform, and able to perform a precision landing. The system consists of a lifting quadrotor ...

  7. Development of a long-acting, injectable controlled release butyrylcholinesterase formulation using predictive modeling.

    SBC: Qrono, Inc.            Topic: CBD13107

    Elevated levels of human butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) confer protection from chemical warfare nerve agents and other organophosphorous chemicals. As a prophylactic, the key to enabling this protection is the ability to maintain elevated concentrations of BuChE in the plasma for days or weeks. Thus far, plasma-derived and PEGylated recombinant forms of BuChE have been tested in humans. However, ...

  8. Microfiber-Based Closures with Hermetic Sealing for Chem Bio Protective Garments

    SBC: NANOGRIPTECH            Topic: CBD13109

    Hook and loop closures in Army uniforms have been identified as the critical sources of leaks in protective clothing/equipment, which limits the overall protective capability of the ensemble. New closure systems capable of providing both the shear and peel strengths demonstrated by hook and loop systems as well as hermetic sealing against any vapor permeation across the closure need to be develope ...

  9. AOTF-based Spectral Imaging for Enhanced Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: DRS SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: CBD13104

    DRS Scientific proposes a new type of Acousto-Optic Tuned Filter (AOTF) polarimetric hyperspectral imager that is compact, rugged, and inexpensive, has no moving parts, is free of optical aberrations, and is fast and sensitive. It will cover 8-12 mm with 8 cm-1 spectral resolution or finer, and will have mFlick sensitivity with a cooled camera, and

  10. A Novel, Aerodynamics-augmented Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12107

    Safe and efficient air ionization and filtration technology compatible to biodefense applications is of paramount importance. Current ionization methods are energy-intensive, costly, prone to ozone generation, or inefficient, and consequently ill-suited for building protection applications. To overcome these issues, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel bioaerosol ionization and collection ...
