Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/15/94 - 02/14/95

The construction of a rapid and sensitive assay for Salmonella contamination of foods is proposed. Salmonella causes over 40,000 U.S. cases of food poisoning per year. The Bacterial Ice Nucleation Diagnostic (BIND-TM) assay system is based upon transduction of an ice nucleation gene by a bacteriophage specific to the target organism, followed ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/90 - 03/31/91

The construction of a family of rapid and sensitive assays for Salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria is proposed. Two model assays, based upon the transduction of bacterial ice nucleation genes by genetically engineered bacteriophages, have already been produced, and shown to function as predicted. However, these assays were constructed using...

Topic:
Budget: 08/01/88 - 01/31/89

The gene which encodes human growth hormone will be engineered for high expression in plant cells by fusions to strong promoters from plants. These chiameric genes will be transferred to plant cells via the Agrobacterium transformation system, and regenerated transgenic plants will be produced. Such plants will be assayed to determine the leve...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic:
Budget: 06/01/87 - 11/30/87

The potential use of bacterial ice nuclei as a high sensitivity, low background detector for clinical immunoassays is proposed. Such a detection system could be adapted to current immunoassays, reducing sample sizes needed for accurate immunodetection. Ice nuclei could also be used to construct new assays for immunodetection of viruses, ricket...
