  1. Sensitive Molecular Beacons (MB) Based DNA Microarray

    SBC: BIOMACHINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The DNA microarray is a powerful new technology that can be applied to the detection of biological warfare agents. For the detection of multiple agents, tremendous challenges lie ahead for the DNA microarray technology regarding on sensitivity,selectivity, reliability and consistence. The central theme of this proposal is to apply and optimize a newly developed DNA probe: Molecular beacons (MB) ...

  2. An Innovative Sampler as a Reference Standard for Measurement of Particulate Matter Mass in Ambient Air

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ambient particulate matter (PM) mass exposure is determined by collecting the PM on a sample filter over a period of 24 hours. Because the composition of ambient PM is constantly changing, the PM mass measured using the reference method may not be representative of the PM levels in the atmosphere, primarily due to the loss of collected semi-volatile material that is present in the atmosphere durin ...

  4. An Innovative Sampler as a Reference Standard for Measurement of Particulate Matter Mass in Ambient Air

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Particulate matter (PM) in ambient air is comprised of many chemical species of varying vapor pressures. A direct-mass measurement of PM mass on filters is the basis of regulatory PM reference methods. The loss of semivolatile PM mass collected on filters and filter sampling artifacts can produce nonquantifiable biases in reference method measurements depending on the thermodynamic history of the ...

  6. Miniaturized Real-time Visible/UV Spectrometer

    SBC: Spectronix Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The miniaturized spectrometer presented in this proposal is a simple hand-held static Fourier-transform spectrometer for real-time detection and characterization of chemicals in rapidly changing and/or fast moving environments such as chemicals in cloudsand vapor. The core of the system consists of a pair of mirrors and a line scan CCD array. The interferogram is generated in the spatial domain a ...

  7. BIOSCRUBBING VOLATILE NITROAROMATIC POLLUTANTS FROM AIR: BENCH-SCALE FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS BY BIOSCRUBBING WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO THEIR FEASIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY IN BENCH-SCALE EXPERIMENTS. A MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM ENRICHED ON SELECTED NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS SUCH AS NITROBENZENE OR NITROTOLUENE WILL BE IMMOBILIZED ON A POROUS SOLID MATRIX PACKED INTO A SCRUBBING COLUMN. MEASURED VOLUMES OF AIR, CONTAINING KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NITR ...

  8. A HAND-HELD LEAD DETECTOR

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE MID-EIGHTIES, APPROXIMATELY THREE MILLION CHILDRED BETWEEN SIX MONTHS AND FIVE YEARS OLD HAD POISONOUS BLOOD LEAD CONCENTRATIONS DUE TO PAINT. THERE IS RISK FOR ADULTS IN THE PAINT, AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING, AND CERAMIC INDUSTRIES. THE NATION COULD SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF LEAD POISONING IF ONE WERE ABLE TO MEASURE LEAD USING A INEXPENSIVE, PORTABLE DEVICE. CURRENT LEAD MEA ...

  9. "MITIGATION OF ACID RAIN AND OXIDANT IMPACTS ON CROPS AND FORESTS UTILIZING MARINE EXTRACTS"

    SBC: Maricultura Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ASSESSMENTS ESTIMATE U.S. CROP LOSSES FROM ELEVATED OZONE LEVEL AND OTHER OXIDANTS (SULFUR DIOXIDE, NITROGEN DIOXIDE) TO BE AS MUCH AS $5 BILLION ANNUALLY. ADDITIONALLY,SEVERE FOREST DAMAGE MAY RESULT FROMPOLLUTION-RELATED OXI- DANTS PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATICDECLINE IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS. THIS RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT THE MITIGATION OF SUCH ...

  10. "SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION OF NON-VOLATILES FROM AQUEOUS AND NON-AQUEOUS MATRICES--A SAMPLE PREPARATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THEFIELD AND LAB"

    SBC: Nanco Labs Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION, A CURRENTLY DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGY MAY BE USED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLE PREPARATION. THE PRESENT METHODLOGY OF LIQUID/LIQUID EXTRACTION IS NOT PRAC- TICAL IN THE FIELD. MANY INVESTIGATORS HAVE STUDIED SOLID- PHASE EXTRACTION. HOWEVER, THESE WORKS ARE LIMITED TO NAR- ROW CLASSES OF COMPOUNDS. NO OVERALL METHODOLOGY IS AVAILA-BLE FOR PREPARING A SAMPLE CONTAMINATED WITH MULTIP ...
