Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 07/01/15 - 12/31/15

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project can be seen through the increased measurement requirements of pesticides in drinking in the U.S. and around the world. Several government agencies including the U.S. EPA Office of Water, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and State Environmental Departments, and local city and county agencies m...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20b
Budget: 04/06/15 - 04/05/17

Heavy metal (such as lead, uranium, chromium etc.) contamination is a widespread concern that poses a problem for public health when contaminated water is consumed or enters the food chain. Monitoring our water resources is important to achieve timely remediation. Heavy metal testing is typically done in the laboratory by sophisticated analytica...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project focuses on commercializing dip-stick tests for detection of heavy metals (lead, uranium, copper, mercury) in water, where the appearance of a red line on the test strip will indicate the presence of a contaminant. Heavy metal contamination in water poses a serious health concern and their e...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-281
Budget: 04/01/09 - 03/31/11
PI: Yi Lu

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cost-effective catalytic DNA biosensors for heavy metal ions such as lead(II), uranium(VI), mercury(II), and cadmium(II) will be developed. They will be tested for on-site, real-time detection and quantification with minimal rates of false positive or false negative results. Exposure to these metal ions can c...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-81
Budget: 09/26/08 - 03/31/09
PI: Yi Lu

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cost-effective catalytic DNA biosensors for heavy metal ions such as lead(II), uranium(VI), mercury(II), and cadmium(II) will be developed. They will be tested for on-site, real-time detection and quantification with minimal rates of false positive or false negative results. Exposure to these metal ions can c...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/07 - 01/31/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by fungi that contaminate crops during growth, transportation, or storage. Contamination of food and feed by mycotoxigenic fungi is an important agricultural and national security concern. For example, thousands of people are sickened annually by mycotoxicoses related t...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This STTR Phase I research will develop detection methods using allosteric DNAzymes (aptazymes) to detect cyanobacterial toxins that occur throughout the world in both fresh and brackish water. Cyanotoxins present a public safety hazard through contamination of drinking water supplies by blue-green algae (cyanobacteria), and sensitive detection ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard as low level lead exposure can result in a number o adverse health effects, especially in children. On-site and real-time detection and quantification of lead in the paint/dust is very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both ...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/05/05 - 11/30/06
PI: Yi Lu

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A general method of developing catalytic DNA biosensors for on-site, real-time, and cost-effective detection and quantification of multiple heavy metal ions, such as mercury, cadmium and lead, simultaneously will be explored. Exposure to these metal ions can bring severe health effects to human beings, such a...
