  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  2. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Cryptosporidium is a resilient waterborne protozoan pathogen that causes gastrointestinal disease and is one of five major causes for 5 million deaths each year worldwide. Recently, a Cryptosporidium outbreak sickened more than 1,700 people, mostly children and teenagers, in New York. Cryptosporidium oocysts are of particular interest in the water industry because the infectious dose is low (1 to ...

  3. Nanoadsorbent and Microwave Technology to Capture and Recover Organic Vapors

    SBC: ADS Technoogies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air polutants (HAPS are a serioud environmental issue. These pollutants are requlated to protect human health and encourage the development of better control technologies. Current technologies to control thses emissions, until better materials are developed, include destructive and/or recovery-based technologies. Implementation of ads ...

  4. Micro-discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can b detected and the focus of this Phase II project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, then move to field tests of sampling and analysis. Finall ...

  5. Novel Material and Process for Replacement of Lead Products

    SBC: MATERIALS PROCESSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lead is a soft, low melting point, high density, and inexpensivve material that can be easily shaped. All these attributes have made lead useful in appplications such as bullets, fishing rod sinkers, weights for balancing tires, hunting shots, etc. In spite of all these attractive properties, lead is a major environmental contaminant due to its toxicity. Leaed is toxic and cna be stored in biol ...

  8. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosporidium parvum, a protozoan parasite that invades the gastrointestial system, is a serious threat to the nation's water supply. Assays for pathogen using self-contained microelectrochemical detection are desirable because precise detection can be performed with simple instrumentation on colored and turbid samples minimizing pre-treatment procedures. In addition, electrochemical detection ...
