48 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB017.1-006
Budget: 05/01/17 - 10/31/17

Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) pose significant dangers to human health upon exposure. Unfortunately, emergency responders are unwittingly exposed to these TICs while responding and containing crisis situations, leading increased risk for disease. To protect emergency responders against dangerous exposure to chemicals, Platypus Technologies...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 08/01/16 - 01/31/17

SUMMARYAromatic volatile organic compounds (aVOCs) such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX)depress the central nervous system upon short-term exposure and upon long term-exposure can lead toreproductive system damage and dermatitis. Benzene, present in gasoline and crude oil, and one of the twentymost common chemical manufacturi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 02/01/16 - 07/31/16

? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The air we breathe can contain dozens of toxins. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) strategic plan for 2012-2017 includes a major focus on enhancing our ability to quantify individual exposures and responses to environmental toxins. Similarly, the US Environmental Protection ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Agency: Army
Topic: A13A-T004
Budget: 09/29/14 - 09/30/15

In Phase I we successfully reached all goals and milestones in developing liquid crystal sensors that detected 100 ppb of each of four target gases (DMMP, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide and ammonia) within 60 seconds. In Phase II, we propose to expand this detection capability to a total of seven gases, adding volatile organic compounds, ch...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-13-088
Budget: 08/01/14 - 01/31/15

Project Summary The goal of this SBIR project is to design and develop an efficient, automation- compatible Directed Cell Migration (DCM) 96-well Assay that distinguishes chemokinetic from chemotactic behavior. Cell migration is currently assayed using trans-membrane well inserts, microfluidic systems and various versions of scratch assays. The...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-13-234
Budget: 07/01/14 - 12/31/14

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this SBIR project is to design and develop an efficient, physiologically relevant and cost-effective 96-well 3-D Cell Migration Assay that is compatible with mid-high throughput/high content assay platforms. Due to its importance in cancer and associated metastatic processes, cell migration is int...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Agency: Army
Topic: A13A-T004
Budget: 09/27/13 - 03/31/14

We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include simulants of chemical warfare agents and toxic i...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-10-050
Budget: 02/01/12 - 01/31/14

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term goal of this project is to develop a 384-well cell invasion assay suitable for high throughput screening (HTS) of chemical libraries. The principal barrier to evaluating cancer drugs for cell invasion is the lack of affordable 3-dimensional assays that are robust, reproducible, physiologically r...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will lead to the development of a new class of liquid crystal (LC)-based direct-read monitors (DRMs) for detection of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) present in air at construction sites. The approach to development of DRMs that is described in this proposal is based on the innovative use of ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-11-096
Budget: 09/01/11 - 08/28/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Workers in painting, automobile, textile, printing, and pharmaceutical industries are exposed to vapors from organic solvents that are recognized by National Institute of Occupational Safety and Hygiene (NIOSH) as carcinogens, reproductive hazards, and/or neurotoxins. Workers in these industries wear Air Puri...
