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

    SBC: Qatch Technologies, LLC            Topic: 90

    The main focus of this SBIR Phase II project is to develop a prototype instrument and test cartridges for injectability pre-screening of high concentration protein formulations (HCFs). HCFs are non-Newtonian fluids with shear-thinning behavior and they are formulated to be administered by subcutaneous or muscular injections. The injectability and manufacturability of HCFs depend on the viscosity b ...

  2. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 90

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the as-manufactured material properties are unknown. Attempts to predict performance of ...

  3. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 90

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if complex flow patterns exist, which is common. Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of perfo ...

  4. Advanced Manufacturing and Material Measurements Software Tool WEAVE for the Accelerating and Automation of SEM image analysis in the Semiconductor Industry

    SBC: Sandbox Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: 90

    The goal of this proposal is to create the software Weave™ to automate the extraction of critical dimensions (CDs) from scanning electron microscope (SEM) images for the microelectronics industry. Current best practices for extraction of CDs are that personnel analyze the images one by one, which is tedious, prone to human bias, time-consuming and expensive. Successful implementation of Weave™ ...

  5. Commercialization of NIST Technology for Separating Particles with Light

    SBC: PARMAN TECH, LLC            Topic: 90

    Parman Tech will build a first prototype embodying the NIST-owned technology ‘Optical Particle Sorter.’ The prototype will demonstrate feasibility of a commercial implementation of this technology. The prototype will also serve as the model for subsequent production of several beta-units to be used for obtaining customer feedback and eventually validation of the product.

  6. Watertight CAD for Integrating Isogeometric Analysis into the Model-Based Enterprise

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: 90

    Today’s Computer-Aided Design (CAD) applications utilize restrictive mathematical assumptions to approximate the compound geometric intersections necessary to represent real-world products. As a result, critical information is not represented within the Model-Based Definition (MBD) for downstream users in the digital thread, forcing engineers to manually repair CAD models and convert them into d ...

  7. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: 90

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface that allows an user to label arbitrary 3D objects, identify assembly poin ...

  8. The Full Integration of a Portable Bacterial Concentrator with a Pathogen Detector Device

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: 90

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to integrate an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator with a handheld pathogen detection system to enable ultra-low cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including in Yemen, where in the first 5 months of 2020 has had 110,000 suspected cases. Current methods used to detect the chole ...

  9. Feasibility of Using a High-speed AI-driven Experimental Platform to Develop an Optimized DNA Template for Cell-free Protein Expression

    SBC: BigHat Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 90

    We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a high-speed artificial intelligence (AI)-driven experimental platformto optimize the DNA template for cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) to maximize protein expression. Our platform isdesigned to rapidly find an optimal DNA sequence among millions of possible sequences through repeated designbuild-test cycles: AI is used to design the DNA templat ...

  10. Advanced Measurement Probe System for Non-Nulling Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 90

    Industrial facilities and power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing method developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error due to biases from human operators and any non-axial flow in a stack.NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow testing f ...
