  3. Microcapillary Quartz Sensors for Screening Injectability of High Concentration Protein Formulations

    SBC: Qatch Technologies, LLC            Topic: None

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to determine the feasibility of viscosity characterization of high concentration protein formulations (HCF) by QATCH’s microcapillary quartz technology. HCFs are non-Newtonian fluids with shear-thinning behavior and they are administered to patients by subcutaneous or muscular injections. The injectability of HCFs depends on the viscosity at high-sh ...

  4. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  5. Development of the JoRT Platform for Realistic Joint Reduction Training

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA173002

    Joint reduction is a key skill and is a core competency for orthopedic surgeons deploying as part of a trauma team.Current training options are limited to classroom instruction on uninjured persons due to lack of a suitable training simulator. The first true reduction performed by medical providers is on actual patients. This method of instruction prevents the trainee from developing the comfort a ...

  6. Rapid At-home Test for Monitoring Tacrolimus Levels in Plasma

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18145

    Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) is a surgical approach for the clinical management of non-salvagable injuries. Tissue rejection is a major issue for patients receiving VCA. Tacrolimus is the most common immunosuppressant employed to minimize tissue rejections in VCA. The safety and efficacy of tacrolimus, which has a narrow therapeutic window is particularly sensitive to proper ma ...

  8. Field-deployable Measurement of Fluorocarbons in Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER1B

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been identified as a serious health contaminant in water at levels between 12 and 516 parts per trillion by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. In 2016, the EPA set a lifetime health advisory of 70 parts per trillion for two PFASs, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). These compounds come from a variety of so ...
