  1. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  2. Microcapillary Quartz Sensors for Screening Injectability of High Concentration Protein Formulations

    SBC: Qatch Technologies, LLC            Topic: None

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to determine the feasibility of viscosity characterization of high concentration protein formulations (HCF) by QATCH’s microcapillary quartz technology. HCFs are non-Newtonian fluids with shear-thinning behavior and they are administered to patients by subcutaneous or muscular injections. The injectability of HCFs depends on the viscosity at high-sh ...

  3. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  4. STIMULUS PAIRS IN 3D AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING THREE-CHANNEL RECORDING OF THE AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE (ABR) WITH A STIMULUS-PAIRS TECHNIQUE SO AS TO MEASURE THE DECREMENT IN RESPONSE THAT OCCURS IN THE RELATIVE REFRACTORY PERIOD (RRP). THIS METHOD WILL PERMIT DETECTION OF ANY ABNORMALITIES THAT AFFECT THE RRP, AS THE PARAMETERS CAN BE ADJUSTED SO THAT THERE IS DECREMENT ...

  5. MEASUREMENT OF INTERLEUKIN-2 AND INTERLEUKIN-2 RECEPTOR BY ELISA

    SBC: Advanced Allergy Res Ctrs Inc            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE PAST 20 YEARS, DIFFERENT BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED FOR LYMPHOKINES PRODUCED BY ACTIVATED LEUKOCYTES. INTERLEUKIN-1 (IL-1) IS A FACTOR PRODUCED BY ACTIVATED MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTES AND IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUPPORTING BOTH T-CELL AND B-CELL RESPONSES. ACTIVATED T CELLS PRODUCE INTERLEUKIN-2 (IL-2), A FACTOR NECESSARY FOR T-CELL PROLIFERATION. THIS SOLUBLE FACTOR EXERTS ITS BIOL ...

  6. ASSAY FOR PREDICTING METHOTREXATE SENSITIVITY IN HUMAN BREAST CANCER

    SBC: Aeron Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-RANGE GOAL OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP AN IN VITRO TEST TO IMPROVE SELECTION OF THERAPIES FOR INDIVD- UAL BREAST CANCER PATIENTS BY PREDICTING RESPONSE TO METHO- TREXATE. EXISTING ASSAYS FOR BREAST CANCER CELLS CANNOT DE-TERMINE METHOTREXATE SENSITIVITY BECAUSE OF REQUIREMENTS FORFOR FEEDER LAYERS AND MEDIUM COMPONENTS THAT CAN RESCUE SEN-SITIVE CELLS. THIS PROPOSA WILL,THEREFORE, EVAL ...

  8. AN IMAGE PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION SYSTEM FOR PSYCHOBIOLOGY

    SBC: American Innovision, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEWLY AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO CONSTRUCT VIDEO-BASED DEVICES FOR PREPARING AND PRESENTING VIDEO IMAGES THAT INCORPORATE FUNCTIONS OF MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OFIMAGE PRESENTATION SYSTEMS CURRENTLY IN USE IN LEARNING, BEHAVIOR, AND VISION RESEARCH. THE IMAGE EDITOR WOULD INCLUDE THE CAPACITY TO TAKE SELECTED PORTIONS OF VIDEO IMAGES AND REARRANGE THEM AS DESIRED TO CREATE A STIMULUS IM ...

  9. FALL-EVENT RECORDING SYSTEM

    SBC: ANCO ENGINEERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    TO FURTHER BIOMEDICAL AND CLINICAL RESEARCH INTO THE AGING PROCESS, A VIDEO-RECORDING SYSTEM PERMITTING THE GENERATION OF A VIDEO DATA LIBRARY OF FALL EVENTS IS NEEDED. THIS PROPOSAL DELINEATES THE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF A VIDEO-RECORDING SYSTEM THAT WOULD AUTOMATICALLY RECORD FALL EVENTS. ITS UNIQUE FEATURES WILL INCLUDE THE ABILITY TO RECORD THE ENTIRE EVENT, INCLUDING THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND ...

  10. QUANTIFICATION OF BASOPHIL-HISTAMINE RELEASE BY EIA

    SBC: Analatom Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    HISTAMINE IS AN IMPORTANT BIOCHEMICAL MEDIATOR THAT CAUSES ALLERGIC SYMPTOMS. IGE MOLECULES HAVE A HIGH AFFINITY FOR RECEPTORS ON BASOPHILS. THE PRESENCE OF SPECIFIC ALLERGENS WILL BRIDGE IGE BOUND ON BASOPHIL AND INITIATE A CHAIN OF EVENTS LEADING TO HISTAMINE RELEASE. QUANTIFYING BASOPHIL-HISTAMINE RELEASE ESSENTIALLY MEASURES THE CELL-BOUND, ALLERGEN-SPECIFIC IGE AND WILL ALLOW EVALUATION OF A ...
