Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-13-234
Budget: 06/01/14 - 12/31/14

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The existence of terrorist organizations around the world, along with their ability to recruit expertise from physicians and scientists, poses an increasing threat of bioterrorist attack to society. In order to reduce the consequences of such an attack or even prevent it, new systems for detection of biothrea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact /commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will address the needs of the antibody market for fast and inexpensive production of antibodies. Antibodies are among the most utilized molecular tools in the life sciences, whose applications span a variety of areas in biological science and medic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a new signal amplification system that, while being inexpensive and simple to use, can be combined with antibodies or other probe molecules and can increase detection limits of conventional Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) by 100 to 1000-fold. ELISA has ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project has the goal of creating a signal amplification system that, while being inexpensive and simple to use, can be combined with antibodies or other probe molecules, and can increase detection limits of conventional ELISAs by 100- to 1000-fold, or even higher. To prove the concept, it is...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: A5-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project has a goal of creating a system that, while being inexpensive and simple to use, will be able to analyze samples for the presence of a live pathogenic bacteria and determine their species, as well as sensitivities to antibiotics within just a few hours. As detectors, this system will...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT7-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project has the goal of creating a system that, while being inexpensive and simple to use, will be able to generate variable domains of heavy chain-only llama antibodies (also called VHHs, or nanobodies) targeted to antigens of interest in vitro. This system will not require llama vaccinatio...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-134
Budget: 09/01/09 - 08/31/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A growing number of potential native and engineered biothreat agents effectively limit the proactive protection of public health through vaccination. An alternative approach relies on the use of corresponding protective antibodies that are pre-made and are used as injectable drugs in reactive rather than proa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-34
Budget: 09/01/08 - 08/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A growing number of potential native and engineered biothreat agents effectively limit the proactive protection of public health through vaccination. An alternative approach relies on the use of corresponding protective antibodies that are pre-made and are used as injectable drugs in reactive rather than proa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PAS-02-149
Budget: 09/01/07 - 02/28/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ongoing war on terror has created the necessity of a whole new spectrum of systems that are able to detect and inactivate biothreat agents, systems that are inexpensive to produce, robust and stable to allow their use on a massive scale by first responders or even the general population. However, properti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-06
Budget: 09/08/06 - 08/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract: Microarray technology offers an opportunity for simultaneous monitoring of the behavior of multiple markers within a mammalian cell and ultimately could be used for detection and elucidation of mechanisms of action of different biologically active agents, including those that are con...
