  1. STTR PHASE I: Ultra-High Efficiency Biodiesel Manufacturing

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project research seeks to change the paradigm that chemical reactions need mechanical mixing. Innovative Fiber Reactors (FR) offer a 100X change in efficiency of chemical and biochemical manufacturing while eliminating dispersions. This research focuses on biodiesel transesterification and esterification reactions. Biodiesel plants convert fats/oils ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: An Omni-Directional Antireflective Coating from Solutions

    SBC: ZT Solar, Inc            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel Omni-Directional Antireflective Coating (Omni-AR) to improve light collection in photovoltaic cells. The coating consists of a monolayer of microscale silica particles partially immersed into a film of spin-on glass. Its antireflection is broad spectrum and less dependent on sunlight incident angle, thus omni-direct ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Improved in Vivo Delivery of SiRNA

    SBC: BIOO SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop an improved method for the delivery of small inhibitory ribonucleic acids (siRNA) into cells. The proposed methodology will utilize chemically induced immuno-conjugates or direct linking of siRNAs to antibodies as the mechanism for improving siRNA delivery into the cells. Use of siRNA to silence genes of int ...

  8. STTR Phase I:Video Analysis Techniques for Computer-Aided Quality Control for Colonoscopy

    SBC: EndoMetric, LLC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop algorithms for a quality control system for colonoscopy (a procedure where the mucosa of the large bowel is inspected via a flexible tube with a camera on it) that has contributed to a marked decline in the number of colorectal cancer related deaths. However, recent data suggest that there is a significant miss-rate for the detec ...
