  2. IMAGING OF ELEMENTS IN TISSUE AT TRACE CONCENTRATIONS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INSTRUMENTATION ENABLING QUANTITATIVE TRACE ELEMENT-CONCENTRATION IMAGING WITH HIGH SENSITIVITY AND RESOLUTION (1 PPM, 5 ) OF BIOLOGICAL TISSUE SECTIONS OVER 2X2MM(2) WOULD BE A VALUABLE RESEARCH TOOL. SIMULTANEOUS STRUCTURAL IMAGING WOULD ENHANCE ITS UTILITY. SPUTTER-INITIATED RESONANCE IONIZATION SPECTROSCOPY (SIRIS) WILL BE ADAPTED TO PROVIDE STRUCTURAL IMAGING AND QUANTITATIVE ELEMENT-CONCENTR ...

  3. SUBPICOSECOND DESORPTION AND MASS ANALYSIS OF LARGE MOLECULES

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EMERGING HEALTH AND MEDICAL RESEARCH PROBLEMS ARE PLACING STRINGENT REQUIREMENTS ON THE ABILITY TO CHARACTERIZE LABILEAND HIGH-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. IN BIOTECHNOLOGY, FOR EXAMPLE, INTERMEDIATE SYNTHESIS PRODUCTS MUST BE IDENTIFIED. RECENT ION BOMBARDMENT DESORPTION MODELS SUGGEST THAT HIGHEST-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT COMPOUNDS WOULDDESORB MOST EFFICIENTLY THROUGH RAPID, MULTIPLE EXCITATIONS ...

  6. SIGNAL PROCESSING HIGH-FREQUENCY AUDIOMETER

    SBC: Audiometer Development Group            Topic: N/A

    A NEW HIGH-FREQUENCY AUDIOMETER HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WITH NIH/NINCDS SUPPORT. THE AUDIOMETER USES DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING TO CALIBRATE EACH EAR TESTED, AND IS ABLE TO PROVIDE ACCURATE ESTIMATES OF ACTUAL SOUND PRESSURE AT THE APEX OF THE AUDITORY CANAL. THE NEW AUDIOMETER CAN SERVE IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF VALID AUDIOMETRIC STANDARDS FOR THE NORMAL POPULATION, AND FOR ACCURATE DETERMINATION OF HIGH ...

  7. CHRONIC DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM AND PLAYBACK TO COMPUTER

    SBC: August Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CONSIDERABLE EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT ANALYSIS OF THE ELECTRO- CARDIOGRAM OVER EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME PROVIDES CLINICALLYSIGNIFICANT INFORMATION IMPORTANT IN THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF CARDIAN DISEASE. AVAILABLE AMBULATORY MONITOR-ING DEVICES ARE ADEQUATE FOR 24-HOUR PERIODS; LIMITATIONS ARE EVIDENT WHEN LONGER PERIODS ARE REQUIRED. THE PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF BIOLOGICAL DATA A ...

  8. RESEARCH FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A FULL-PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY

    SBC: Automagic Control Corpon            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH NECESSARY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A "POINT AND READ"DYNAMIC FULL-PAGE BRAILLE DISPLAY IS PROPOSED. THE DISPLAY WILL FEATURE SINGLE HAND CONTROL AND WILL ALLOW READING SPEEDS COMPARABLE TO THOSE THAT CAN BE ATTAINED WITH EMBOSSED BRAILLE. THE DISPLAY WILL BE DESIGNED FOR USE WITHA COMPUTER OR TERMINAL AND WILL SHOW THE ENTIRE SCREEN'S CONTENTS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED IN TWO ...

  9. FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION OF AN AUTOMATIC SOLUBILITY-MONITORING SYSTEM

    SBC: AUTOMATED PRECISION INC.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN AUTOMATIC, LASER-SCANNING SOLUBILITY-MONITORING SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO REPLACE CURRENT MANUAL SOLUBILITY-TESTING PROCEDURES PERFORMED IN GOVERNMENT LABORATORIES, PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES, AND FOOD INDUSTRIES WITH A MORE ECONOMICAL AND EFFICIENT PROCEDURE. PHASE I EFFORTS WILL BE DIRECTED TO THE DESIGNING, CONSTRUCTION, AND DEMON ...

  10. NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF KIDNEYS AWAITING TRANSPLANT

    SBC: BARLOW SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG-TERM GOSL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO CONSTRUCT AND EVALUATE A NONINVASIVE DEVICE THAT WILL ASSESS THE FUNCTIONAL INTEGRITY OF HYPOTHERMIC PERFUSED KIDNEYS PRIOR TO TRANSPLANT. THE DEVICE IS BASED ON MEASUREMENTS OF CHANGES IN MITOCHONDRIAL ELECTRON-TRANSPORT PROTEIN-OXIDATION STATES IN THE KIDNEY CORTEX. THESE CHANGES CAN BE MEASURED SPECTROPHOTOMETRICALLY AND WILL BE IMAGED AT THE SURFACE OF ...
