Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/98 - 08/31/00

Our goal is to produce a commercial instrument which combines the laser- induced photolysis of photolabile caged compounds and acoustic detection to obtain very fast kinetic information on biological molecules. In Phase I we built a prototype pulsed-laser photoacoustic instrument and showed that it could be used t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1996
Budget: 01/01/96 - 12/31/96

FLUORESCENCE METHODS ARE USED THROUGHOUT A VARIETY OF FIELDS INCLUDING BIOTECHNOLOGY, MICROSCOPY, IMMUNOLOGY, BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHOTOCHEMISTRY, AND PHOTOPHYSICS. MANY FLUORESCENCE TECHNIQUES EMPLOY CHANGES IN FLUORESCENCE INTENSITY OF CHROMOPHORES IN RESPONSE TO THEIR MOLECULAR ENVIRONMENT. THE GOAL IS TO CORRELATE FLUORESCENCE INTENSITY (AN...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/01/94 - 10/31/94

The instrument we refer to as "Big Bang" uses a moderately powered laser flash to initiate the release of photolabile "caged" groups such as protons, which then will induce conformational changes in a biological polymer such as a protein or DNA. The conformational changes of the polymer will induce acoustic waves within the solution resulting fr...
