  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 ...

  4. BIODEGRADATION ENHANCEMENT OF PEETROGENIC WASTES

    SBC: Ecova Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP AN IN SITU PROCESS WHICH WILL ENHANCE THE RATE AND EFFICIENCY ASSOCIATED WITH THE BIODEGRADATION OF HYDROPHOBIC ORGANIC CHEMICALS AT MILITARY INSTALLATIONS AND SUPERFUND SITES. RESEARCH ACTIVITIES WILLFOCUS ON IDENTIFICATION OF CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL EMULSIFIERS (SURFACTANTS) WHICH WILL ENHANCE THE BIO-AVAILABILITY OF SUCH PETROGENIC WASTE AS CREOSOTE, COAL TARS, ...

  5. Portable Trace Metal Detection System Based on Disposable Multi-Element Nanoband Electrode Sensors

    SBC: EDTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project involves the development of a portable system for the analysis of trace metals in aqueous solutions based on an innovative disposable multi-element nanoband electrode sensor. The system will be capable of real-time detection of a variety of heavy metals in aqueous solutions, including Zn, Cd, Pb, Cr, Cu, and Hg with a 100 ppb detection limit. The system also will be capable ...

  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. TWO NEW NDE TECHNIQUES FOR INSPECTION OF CONTAINMENT WELDS BENEATH COATINGS

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INSPECTION OF PAINTED OR COATED CARBON STEEL SURFACES OFTEN INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF THE COATING PRIOR TO INSPECTION, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE USE OF MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MT) IS REQUIRED. IN THE CASE OF EXAMINATION OF CONTAINMENT VESSEL WALLS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, THE REMOVAL IS TIME CONSUMING, RESULTING IN INCREASED RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. IN ADDITION, THE REMOVAL MUST BE DONE WITHOUT C ...

  9. 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.

  10. 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 ...
