  3. Environmentally Friendly Luciferase-based Illumination Technology

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF04145

    Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to utilizing bioluminescent materials that can be lighter and do not leave behind non-biodegradable debris. ...

  4. Human Paraoxonase Bioscavenger for Nerve Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A04180

    In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a catalytic organophosphorus bioscavenger based on human paraoxonase 1 (PON1) for the protection of personnel against OP nerve agents. A catalytic bioscavenger that detoxifies multiple organophosphorus (OP) molecules by hydrolysis rather than a single OP molecule like Hu-BuChE greatly reduces the amount of protein required, making administrati ...

  5. ECIS Wound Healing High-Throughput Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A04071

    Healing of a wound is a complex and protracted process of tissue repair and remodeling in response to injury. Understanding how the body repairs damaged tissue and what genes and biochemical factors influence the wound healing process will have tremendous impact on the treatment of chronic wounds and the regeneration of tissue and organ function after injury. To facilitate the discovery of genes ...

  6. Portable Cell Maintenance System

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A04T028

    Cultured cell-based biosensors offer insight into the physiological action of the agent of interest, which is an advantage over other types of sensors. The development of cell-based biosensors that are field-portable would increase their utility in toxicology and environmental monitoring. One of the most significant issues hampering the development of field portable cell-based biosensors is the ...

  7. Dipstick Assay for Field Detection of Leishmania Parasites using Quantum Dots

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: OSD04H08

    A PCR based assay has been developed to detect Leishmania parasites, but PCR requires sophisticated laboratory instruments and trained personnel to interpret the data. The parasite can also be identified in infected sand flies by skillful dissection and microscopic examination but this is subjective and not appropriate for field testing. Antibodies are available that can detect Leishmania parasi ...

  8. Metal Oxide Nanoparticle CO Detector Kit

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF05053

    Applied Nanotech Inc. proposes a miniaturized, low power, rapid responsive CO sensor based on molybdenum oxide nanoparticle networks applied to a thin-film transistor architecture. This sensor will be designed as a low maintenance detector for CO levels in air vehicles. Molybdenum oxide is an n-type semiconductor that shows an increase in conductance due to the oxidation of CO. The thin-film tra ...

  9. High Current Density Carbon Nanotube Cold Cathode for TWT Applications

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: AF05001

    We propose a carbon nanotube based cold cathode designed for high current density, continuous beam operation for Traveling Wave Tubes and other microwave device applications. Our approach in this proposal will be to design the CNT emitters to spread the emission current load and to heat sink the emitters firmly to high thermal conducting carbon fibers. The carbon fiber substrate will also be use ...

  10. Tuneable Low Frequency Microwave Source

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF05006

    High voltage RF sources designed to deliver frequencies from 10's of MHz to 1 GHz can be excessively large systems due to the geometric dependence on the radiating wavelength and the high voltage insulation requirements. Past efforts have targeted specific frequencies with specific temporal signatures and typically require large overhead in ancillary devices. Applied Physical Electronics, L.C. of ...
