Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/15/98 - 09/14/98

We propose to build a device to quantify new simplified semen assays. Novel colorimetric assays for semen evaluation have recently been validated in independent clinical studies and will be introduced commercially in 1997. These MARQ (male reproductive quality) assays operate by filtering, s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/93 - 03/31/94

DESCRIPTION (Adapted from the applicant's abstract): This project focuses upon C.A.S.A. (computer aided sperm analysis) technology for analysis of sperm motion. In the Phase II project, the technological accomplishments of the prototype system tested in Phase I will, with certain innovations, be upgraded into a clinical instrument (Specific Ai...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/28/90 - 04/30/91

This project seeks to develop an improved CASA (computer-aided sperm analysis) instrument for measurement of sperm motion characteristics. Hamilton Thorn Research currently markets its first generation product, the HTM Motility Analyzer. The proposed work intends to improve upon the existing system by: (1) incorporating stroboscopic illuminati...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/16/88 - 11/15/88

Multiparameter analysis of spermatozoal function in necessary for accurate assessment of viability. By adapting an objective, automated sperm motion analyzer (HTM-2000) to measure fluorescence intensity of various supravital stains and membrane probes, and assay will be developed which simultaneously evaluates motility parameters (motile fracti...
