Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-12-088
Budget: 08/01/15 - 07/31/16

DESCRIPTION: In this SBIR Phase II PicoCal will develop a high throughput apparatus to measure changes in cell adhesion at the level of individual receptor-ligand interactions in real time. This tool finds critical applications in research and drug development and would allow researchers to study and manipulate adhesion by bioactive compounds t...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a micromachined patch-clamp probe that enables sub-cellular imaging, electrophysiology, and fluidic delivery at the nanoscale with control of applied force at pN levels. The probe can operate like a force sensing finger to sense contact & membrane rupture, no longer d...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

NSF invites funding requests from current Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Phase II grantees to perform collaborative research with an Engineering Research Center (ERC). The goals of this collaborative effort are to provide a mutually beneficial research and commercialization platform where SB...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Michigan

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: A1D-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project aims to develop highly sensitive and inexpensive uncooled microbolometers using ultra-thin films of metals, metal oxides, or semi-metals. These microbolometers will be attractive for use in portable night vision devices and other thermal imaging applications that require a Noise Equivalent ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-009
Budget: 05/01/09 - 04/30/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In this SBIR a powerful new tool for imaging biological samples with sub-nanometer resolution is proposed. This tool allows for information on cellular processes to be measured from the mechanical and thermal properties of living cells. To date there has been no concentrated effort by a private entity to use ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research project develops an inexpensive, rugged piezo-resistive micro-cantilever sensor array for explosives and toxins detection with the ability for wireless data transmission. The sensor can identify analytes by changes in the electronic properties of the sensor material due to analyte absorpti...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to produce a commercial prototype of a state-of-the-art high throughput scanning probe microscope (HT-SPM), which can be used for measuring topography and thermal parameters in nanotechnology, bio, and semiconductor applications. The scanning probe microscope has been a very su...
