Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/04 - 03/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed research offers an innovative approach to the commercial development of in vivo and in vitro S-nitrosothiols (RSNO) sensors. The design of selective and sensitive RSNO sensors and related instrumentation will be undertaken for a wide range of biological applications. The use of sensitive nitric o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/00 - 03/14/01

The long term goal of the proposed project is to create method and instrumentation with which to measure, the concentration of S-nitrosothiol compounds rapidly and with a sensitivity capable of detecting these species in the biologically relevant range. S-nitrosothiols have a broad range of biological functions some best explained by the compoun...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/97 - 08/31/99

A new device is described, called the Photoliberator, that delivers pharmacological agents to the central nervous system from "caged" compounds. These compounds conserve their biological activity until released by light energy of the appropriate wavelength. Because neuroactive molecules are generated...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/21/95 - 03/20/96

In the last several years, nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to be an extremely important biological agent. Active ongoing research by many investigators is exploring both its function and possible clinical applications. The long term objective of this project is to investigate and develop a new and n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/94 - 05/31/95

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from Applicant's Abstract) Nitric oxide (NO) is a free-radical gas that is implicated in many important physiological roles, including such fundamental processes as blood pressure regulation and memory formation. While much indirect research has been performed on systems that use NO, studies of direct in vivo applica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/20/94 - 12/19/94
PI: Suyi Liu

The long term objective of this study is the development of microspectrophotometric apparatus with sensitivities orders of magnitude greater than heretofore possible. The research project will investigate techniques for fabricating unique capillary cells to be used as microanalytical cuvettes. Experiments will be conducted to confirm light abs...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/15/92 - 03/14/93

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the Applicant's Abstract). The long-term objective of this project is the development of a more accurate and useful instrument with which to perform pneumatic microinjection of fluids in the life sciences and microchemistry. Experimental studies performed by the applicant in Phase I of this project confirm that pneu...
