  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 ...

  2. Measurement of Biological Contamination of Water

    SBC: Maine Research and Technology Co, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) can sometimes be used as a diagnostic device in biology and medicine. In general, LIF has difficulties in relating the fluorescence spectra to the concentration of the emitters within the tissue, in identifying different species, and in the possibility of destroying the molecules being probed if the wrong excitation wavelength is chosen. Many of the problems asso ...

  3. Sensors for Metal Vapor and VOC Emissions

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Major improvements in process control, compliance monitoring, and objective environmental decisionmaking could be made if accurate, rugged, and affordable sensors were available. Of particular interest are environmental sensors that can continuously and quantitatively determine both toxic metal vapor emissions and organic compound emissions from complex matrix sources such as power plants, incine ...

  4. Hazardous Metal-Free Color Pigments

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Inorganic color pigments based on hazardous metals such as chromium, mercury, cobalt, lead, etc., account for more than 95% of the U.S. and worldwide pigments consumption. Color pigments are commonly used by numerous industries and in various consumer products. It is estimated that they are one of the largest vehicles of heavy metal-based chemicals in commerce. A technology that can provide a co ...

  6. Development of a Low Toxicity Treatment for Zebra Mussels

    SBC: Pharmacognetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zebra mussels cause an estimated $5 billion in economic damages annually. They clog water intake pipes, damage water supplies, threaten native fish and aquatic species, and promote the mobilization of toxic materials into the food chain. Chlorination is presently the most common treatment for zebra mussels. However, chlorine causes many serious environmental risks, thus necessitating the develo ...

  7. Surface Functionalization of Packaging Fils to Promote Adhesion of Aqueous-Based Inks

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Silica Materials for Mercury Recovery From Wastewater

    SBC: TPL, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A number of industrial processes generate wastewater with mercury contamination. Existing cleanup processes have difficulties in achieving low mercury discharge limits, especially in the presence of competing metal ions already below their discharge limits. Commercial ion exchange media are not selective for mercury, so other metal ions compete with mercury for binding sites. Consequently, excess ...

  10. Development of a Multianalyte Biosensor Instrument

    SBC: Ergopedia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will develop a multianalyte biosensor field screening instrument (MBFI). The MBFI has the potential to reduce the annual cost of environmental analyses in the United States by more than $20 million and to reduce the analysis turnaround time from approximately 19 days to less than 15 minutes. The major barrier to the development of a biosensor instrument for environmental mea ...
