  1. Multi-Zone Flow Through Membrane and Reagents for Onsite Detection of Domoic Acid

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 832

    There is a need for a simple, affordable method for measuring domoic acid in the field. This project will develop a rapid, onsite kit for domoic acid featuring a filter membrane that produces a readable color response without need for instrumentation. The filter membrane contains three or more zones with different assay characteristics in close proximity. These zones will indicate different co ...

  3. Spectroscopic Imaging Technology for THz Biosensor Integrated with a Lab-on-Chip Platform

    SBC: VIBRATESS            Topic: CBD07104

    In this Phase I SBIR project we propose a new imaging mechanism for sub-wavelength THz spectroscopy based on a very strong enhancement of electromagnetic field of the THz radiation at the edges of periodic semiconductor structure. Our recent theoretical study showed THz radiation power enhancement ~1100 with the half power width around the slot edges ~500 nm. Such strongly enhanced local electroma ...

  5. Cost-Effective Manufacturing of a Novel Selective Algaecide for the Fresh-Water Aquaculture Industry

    SBC: Nature Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 815

    The cost-effective manufacturing of a novel algaecide against blue green algae in fresh-water aquaculture operations has great potential for controlling ¿off-flavor¿ problems in pond-raised catfish. The proposed natural-based algaecide has selective activity for blue-green algae as well as a more favorable environmental performance profile with little/no activity towards complimentary phytoplan ...

  6. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...
