Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Duke University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T025
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/01/06

Nanoplex Technologies has developed a powerful new approach to optical detection tags based on surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). These glass-coated metal nanoparticles loaded with Raman reporter molecules have extraordinary attributes that make them ideal as biological detection tags. They are interrogated and detected in the near-IR, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a multiplexable diagnostic assay for DNA detection. The approach uses NanoBarCode (NBC) technology to localize fluorescent DNA probes that are coupled to the NBC particles through thiol-linkages.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Budget: 09/30/02 - 06/30/03

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The molecular analysis of cancer spans two extremes in sample volume: detailed characterization of a few cancerous cells is constrained to microliters of material, whereas in vivo molecular profiling in humans ideally samples the entire blood supply. Neither chromatographic or electrophoretic separation metho...
