  2. Portable System for Sample Preparation and Differentiation of Pathogens at Strain Level

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD04107

    Many believe the greatest threat to our troops and homeland security are attacks using biological weapons. Recent developments of biological warfare agents parallel advances in microbiology, viruses and bacteria can be rendered more lethal through genetic engineering, and many toxins can be mass-produced. However, detecting biological agents is difficult and time consuming because there are thousa ...

  4. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  6. Automated Preferential Display for the Analysis of Gene Expression Profiles

    SBC: GENEXPRESS INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "GeneXpress Informatics, Inc. (GXI) and Dr. James P. Chambers of UTSA propose to develop a revolutionary differential gene display technology, called Preferential Display (PD) which will provide for a simplified, cost-effective method to identify thesegenes for use in discovering gene expression profiles without having any prior knowledge of an organism, tissue or biological samples' genome. The ...

  7. New DNA/RNA Sequencer for Rapid Assessment of Exposure to Infectious Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The importance of DNA/RNA-based assays for detection of biological warfare agents, identification of diseases, genome sequencing, and environmental control is enormous and will inevitably increase. The challenge is the development of low cost andportable methods for sequencing DNA and RNA extracted from surfaces and fluids, to recognize exposure to biowarfare agents. All the conventional techn ...

  9. Development of Array-Based Universal Biosensing Devices Based Upon Intelligent Oligonucleotide Probe Sets

    SBC: Vitruvius Biosciences            Topic: N/A

    "The present proposal describes strategies leading to the development of an array-based universal biosensor for detecting and differentiating microbial species, or differentiating at the DNA or RNA level between cell types of the same species. The proposed strategy relies on the differential hybridization of genomic DNA, extrachromosomal DNA, mRNA, or ribosomal RNA from different sources to a comm ...

  10. Aptamer-Enhanced Biorecognition Reagent System

    SBC: OMNISITE BIODIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "OmniSite BioDiagnostics, Inc. (OmniSite) proposes to develop DNA Aptamers to Bacillus anthracis (nonpathogenic Sterne strain) spores and staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) by the SELEX process. Aptamers are less expensive than antibodies to produce, do notrequire animal hosts for production, can be protected from nucleases, and used in a variety of assay formats to replace antibodies. In Phase I, ...
