The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequence for Biometric Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    A DNA sequencer for biometric applications will be developed. The system will enable rapid and low-cost identification of individuals and kinship verification using a self-contained and portable device. All process steps from DNA extraction to DNA sequencing will be automatically performed within the disposable single-use cartridge. This high-level of functional integration is made possible by Adv ...

  2. Miniaturized DNA Sequencer for Identification of Microbial Pathogens

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Miniaturized DNA Sequencer for Identification of Microbial Pathogens Abstract. The goal of this project is develop a compact and inexpensive DNA sequencer based on the implementation of sequencing-by-synthesis chemistry on a droplet-based digital microfluidic cartridge. The proposed device would be capable of sequencing 10's to 100's of base pairs using an ine ...

  3. Lab-on-a-chip for multiplexed newborn screening of lysosomal storage disorders

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Newborn screening is currently performed by collecting dried bloodspots from infants and then sending them to a lab for analysis. Lysosomal storage diseases alone number greater than 40 and there is an increasing necessity to screen for a number of disease conditions for which therapies are becoming available. Tandem mass spectrometry is an excellent multiplex ...

  4. Lab-on-a-chip for Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia Screening

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite aggressive public health campaigning and strict guidelines for diagnosis and treatment, the estimated incidence of severe hyperbilirubinemia (defined as serum bilirubin levels greater than 99th percentile) is 1:70. Severe hyperbilirubinemia can cause a spectrum of neurologic dysfunction of which kernicterus is the most concerning. Kernicterus manifests ...

  5. High Temp Standoff Dielectric Antenna Windows Based on 3-D Woven Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N08071

    Supersonic cruise missiles offer the ability to hit a time critical target with precision and lethality from long distances, yet the high speed generates temperatures on the exterior surfaces of the missile that can exceed the limitations of high temperature structural metals like titanium. Also, insulation to protect electronics equipment in the missile is required. One solution that demonstrates ...

  6. Hybrid SiC-SiC/C-SiC Thermal Protection Structural Material

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: MDA08020

    Thermal protection materials for ballistic missile kill vehicles must retain strength and stiffness at temperatures around 1500-2000oC in an oxygen rich environment, and isolate payload electronics from excessive heating. Weight is a concern, since lighter weight translates to higher velocity and kinetic energy. Further, the TPS materials must have a long service life, including the ability to w ...

  7. Development and Prototyping of a Digital Pulse Processor for Improved Coincidence Detection, Rejection, and Pulse Recovery, for High Count-Rate Silicon Drift Detectors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with count rates as high as 1-10 Mcps. A problem with existing digital signal processing, as applied to SDDs, is the significant presence of coincidence peaks above the x-ray background. These coincidence peaks occur with amplitudes comparable to lo ...

  8. Subgingival Drug Delivery for Periodontitis Prevention and Treatment

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In addition to the role oral infections play in promoting tooth loss, periodontitis has also been associated with increasing the risk of other medical conditions such as coronary artery disease, stroke and myocardial infarction. Approximately 50% of the US population over 20 years of age has gingivitis around 3 or more teeth, and 5% have advanced periodontitis ...

  9. Novel Formulations for Injectable Growth Factors

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 6.3 million fractures occur each year in the United States alone (Praemer et al. 1999) and approximately 15% of fractures exhibit delayed or impaired healing. The clinical applications currently used to treat delayed fracture require open surgery to insert an autologous bone graft. If open surgery is confounded by co-morbidity or is deemed otherwise undes ...

  10. Growth Factor Coated Sutures for Improved Tendon Repair

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Of the nearly 5 million patients who visit a physician for tendon pain each year in the US, approximately 200,000 go on to have a surgical repair. And while surgical repair has a high-rate of symptom relief, recovering patients are routinely immobilized for several months. Increased tendon strength, during shorter time courses has been reported in animal models ...
