  1. Disposable Micromachined Flow Immunoassay for Field Detection of Contaminants

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect contaminants such as solvents, fuels, and pesticides in soil and water samples is now well established. Although ELISA and related methods can facilitate analysis of samples, several washing and separation steps are involved that require 30 to 120 minutes per sample to reach equilibrium. Recently, near infrared fluorescence immunoassa ...

  3. RECLAMATION OF SOILS AND SOIL LEACHATES CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOIL WASHING OR FLUSHING HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR REMOVING HEAVY METALS FROM METAL-CONTAMINATED SOILS AT SUPERFUND SITES. SANDY SOILS CAN OFTEN BE WASHED WITH WATER TO MOBILIZE METAL IONS IN AN AQUEOUS PHASE, BUT FOR CLAY SOILS OR SOILS WHICH CONTAIN INSOLUBLE METAL COMPOUNDS, E.G., LEAD SULFATE, OTHER ADDITIVES SUCH AS CHELATING AGENTS (EDTA) ARE USED TO EFFECT TRANSFER OF MET ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  5. IONIC SURFACES TO BIOLOGICAL CONTROL

    SBC: Ionic Atlanta Inc            Topic: N/A

    BACTERIA INDUCE MANY OF THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PUBLIC PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH WATER BORNE PATHOGENS. IN ADDITIONTASTE, ODOR, COLOR AND TURBIDITY PROBLEMS ARE SOMETIMES CAUSED BY BACTERIAL, FOULING AND CORROSION ARE ALSO CAUSED BY BACTERIA. FOULED WATER SYSTEM COMPONENTS PROMOTE DEVELOPMENT OF PROTECTED OR SHIELDED CONSORTIA OF BACTERIA WHICH DECREASES THE EFFGECTIVENESS OF CHLORINE (OR OTHE ...

  6. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  8. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

    SBIR Phase II 1990 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  9. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...
