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. New Materials for Plague Antigen and Antibody Detection

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop novel soluble sensing materials that can be used in homogenous fluorescence assays for the detection of Yersinia pestis antigens and antibodies. Y. pestis is the etiological cause of plague and a potential biowarfare agent. The sensing materials are solutions of functionalized liposomes that become fluorescent when they bind selectively t ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Development of a Novel Sensing Material for Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project proposes to develop a method to detect Cryptosporidium parvum oocyst in water using a novel sensing coating deposited on filters. C. parvum has been responsible for a number of outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis, including the outbreak in Milwaukee in 1993 that affected 400,000 people. Crytosporidiosis is characterized by abdominal pain ...

  4. Novel Affordable Composites from Renewable Resources

    SBC: Cara Plastics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Composites today are based on petroleum-based polymers and energy intensive fiber glass. Our dependency on petroleum results in carbon dioxide emissions, which can be harmful to the environment. The purpose of this project is to prepare and test specific resins from natural oils for their compatibility with natural fibers, and the properties necessary for structural applicat ...

  5. Anti-Terrorism- Consequence Management and Recovery

    SBC: CCL Biomedical Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of terrorist or military attack using biological, chemical or radiological weapons is one of the largest concerns to U.S. military forces. Development of defense initiatives that can be implemented to neutralize agents and decontaminatepersonnel, equipment and buildings are required to counter the potentially catastrophic effects of such an attack. A family of biocides has been identifi ...

  6. Polymers for Infection Resistant Urinary Catheters

    SBC: CCL Biomedical Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hospital acquired infections are on the increase and compromise the quality and cost-effectiveness of health care. A significant number of device-associated infections occur with urinary catheters. New and effective strategies to supplement and complement traditional infection control practices are urgently needed. Ideally, new technologies should display br ...

  7. Reclamation of Space Mission Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For long duration exploratory space missions, reclamation of water for potable and hygiene uses from waste water is of vital importance. Approximatesly 230 kg of waste water are generated from four person crew during course of normal daily activities. Physicochemical methods presently in place (e.g. phase change and/or membrane processes) reduce total organic carbon (TOC) to 30-300 mg/liter. Compa ...

  8. Enhanced Soil Vapor Extraction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional volatile organic compound (VOC) recovery membranes (silicone rubber) preferentially transport organics over air. Although this silicone rubber has shown some success, it is not appropriate upstream of catalytic oxidation. Catalytic oxidation requires modest increases in VOC concentration at pressure to maintain performance. This is best achieved by using a reverse separation membra ...

  9. Retrofitting Diesel Electrical Generators for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Diesel generator sets (gen-sets) are used routinely to supply electrical power. Hospitals, businesses, and small communities use gen-sets to help reduce costs by load leveling and provide emergency power during blackouts (either scheduled or unscheduled). Recent power outages in California have led to large increases in the purchase of gen-sets, primarily for providing emergency power. In addit ...

  10. Enhanced Oxygenation of Bioreactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will significantly enhance bioreactor product Mty by significantly increasing the bubbleless oxygen delivery to bioreactors. Sales of major biopharmaceuticals currently exceed $18 billion. Oxygen limitations often control cell growth and viability and therefore product titer. Sparging is extensively used to oxygenate fermentation broths using ad ...
