AbstractNot Available Field detection of multiple biological agents based on rapid nucleic acid amplification is an anticipated goal of DOD We here propose development of a hand held battery operated microfluorimeter device for fluorescence based detect ion and quantitation of biological agent a after nucleic acid amplification. This device is beard on our patented technology of Acousto Optic Tunable Filters which permits rapid, specific, ultra-sensitive, and quantitative analysis of fluorescence light omission from the full range of fluorescence omission wavelengths. A prototype hand held device based on this robust technology and solid state electronics components will be made and tested during the course of this proposed research and development program. BENEFITS: There are universal applications for the proposed device with an estimated commercial diagnostic market size of $5 billion per year in the United States alone.
