Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-062
Budget: 06/10/03 - 03/10/04

The search for a fast and reliable field detection system for biological warfare agents continues more than a year after the anthrax scare that accompanied the terrorist attacks of "September 11th". False positives are a significant problem with the current detection systems because the markers used by these systems are not absolutely specific f...
