  1. Labeless, Reagentless, Biosensor

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The preponderance of biosensors under development today rely on labeling reagents such as fluorescent, radioisotopic or enzymatic tags. As a result, the added complexity of these reagents and their incorporation into the detection system has resulted in designs that are difficult to implement or that require significant sample preparation steps before introduction into the detection instrument. ...

  2. Minature Biological Detector Using On-Chip Eletrostatic Spray Separation

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

    Recent developments in the world political arena have led to The need for miniaturized instrumentation for rapid characterization of micro-organisms and toxins to protect military and civilian personnel against biological weapons and to allow timely administration of prophylactics. Considerable effort is currently underway to develop polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays with automated samp ...

  3. Advanced Column and Accumulator for Low Power Consumption GC

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I research will focus on developing a low power usage chip-based micromachined CC (MMGC) column and sample accumulator. The design of this Innovative miniaturized MMGC will be aimed at reducing the amount of time needed for an analysis. The unique column approach incorporates a stationary phase that will separate organic compounds efficiently. We will investigate the use of several diff ...

  4. Novel Microcantilever Biosensor for the Measurement of Biomolecular Forces

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The ability to detect minute quantities of toxic biological substance s will provide the ability to quickly assess a situation so that an a ppropriate response to exposure can be orchestrated. Not only will t he development of this technology be important in toxic agent warfare detection, the biological sensors would be pertinent in commercial ap plications such as process control and point-of-ca ...

  5. Light Weight Chemical Protective Hand Wear

    SBC: Federal-Fabrics-Fibers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current CBW protective flight handwear consists of three pairs of glo ves: an inner cotton liner glove for comfort and perspiration absorpt ion, a 7mil butyl rubber glove for agent protection and a nomex fligh t glove for fire protection. These three pairs of gloves when worn t ogether are very bulky and cumbersome making it very difficult to per form aircrew tasks that require high tactility, su ...

  6. Deve;opment of A Handheld Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: FEMTOSCAN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to develop new technology on the basis of existing commercial technology can offer significant cost savings when compared to research programs to develop new technology from scratch. Continuing developments in mass spectrometry (MS), vacuum Systems and high speed gas chromatography (GC) sampling and analysis methods, have created an opportunity to fully demonstrate a powerful handporta ...

  7. CBW Low Profile Man-Mounted Filter And Blower Unit

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is an increasing threat of chemical and biological (CB) agents being used by hostile forces when USN aircrew could be exposed. Aircrews must wear special eye and respiratory protective equipment both before. During, and after flight operations, and transition between these states without compromising CB Protectionintegrity. Man-mounted CBW filter/blower units have previously been produced an ...

  8. CBW Ensemble Pass-Through for A Man Mounted Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current CB protective ensembles impose a thermal burden on aircrew which not only limits mission time. but poses a physiological danger to aircrew operating in even moderate temperature environments~ A small man-mounted cooling system employing active liquid based technology would enhance mission effectiveness and prevent a hazardous rise in core body temperature. However, these state-of-the-art s ...

  9. Large Scale Production of Antibodies in Transgenic Animals

    SBC: GALA DESIGN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a rapid and easily scaleable system for the production of target quantities of monoclonal antibodies in the milk of cattle. O ur approach utilizes a modification of gene therapy techniques to di rectly insert genes for the monoclonals of interest into the mammary epithelium of cattle. In Phase I, we will develop appropriate vector constructs and demonstrate their fidelity in vitro ...

  10. RNA Detector-Molecule Methodology for Microorganism Biodetectors

    SBC: Invitro Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current geopolitical strategies require effective warfare countermeasures to protect U.S. forces against biological and chemical threats. Today's molecular biology and immunological detection technologies cannot be used to produce automated biodetectors useable in the battlefield. New, improved detection technologies are needed to minimize the impact of chemical and biological weapons on Army per ...
