5 Awards Won

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 will develop and employ an innovative signal amplification methodology to create highly sensitive polymer sensors that can detect mold in residential and workplace settings. One method is to detect the airborne microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOC) released by growing mold. H...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB04.1-001-2004
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The Phase II SBIR research proposed here extends and expands upon the results from our successful Phase I research to develop a hand-held electronic nose capable of rapid, sensitive, and accurate detection and identification of a broad range of low vapor pressure (LVP) compounds. The overall goal of this R&D effort is to optimize detection of LV...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB04.1-001-2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

The Phase I research proposed here focuses on three areas of innovation necessary for low vapor pressure chemical detection using our hand-held artificial nose device: 1) We will optimized sensor construction methods to improve the sensitivity and discrimination ability of individual chemical detectors in the device. 2) We will design and test n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-037
Budget: 02/14/03 - 08/13/03

There are currently no established hand-held methods for accurately detecting bulk explosives. Explosives and related compounds, however, exhibit a range of volatilities, suggesting that the best, and perhaps only, method for rapidly detecting them is by detecting their molecules released into the air. Typical analytical chemistry instruments ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel portable sensor array device, based directly on biological principles, for rapidly detecting, identifying, and quantifying volatile compounds in the environment. Lab and field tests show that this platform is sensitive enough to detect and discriminate the vapor...
