18 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR Active

Firm: StabiLux Biosciences, Inc

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 09/15/17 - 08/31/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is the development of novel high-brightness fluorescence compounds (fluorophores). These compounds will find applications in flow cytometry, a laser-induced fluorescence technique that can analyze thousands of cells per second. This efficie...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: CGeneTech, Inc.

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 06/01/17 - 05/31/18

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the development of a novel method for synthetic oligodeoxynucleotide purification. Currently, most oligodeoxynucleotides are purified using chromatography. The techniques are expensive or difficult to scale up, and unsuitable for parallel pu...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Microdevice Engineering LLC

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM
Budget: 09/15/16 - 08/31/18

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is the development of a portable, low cost blood typing and anemia screening device for use in blood donation centers, hospitals, humanitarian efforts and the military. This helps society because every two seconds in United States someone n...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

The Apollo 15 Lunar Module rocket plume excavated regolith which sandblasted at speeds in excess of 1000 m/s the Surveyor 2 lander 200 m away. A Curiosity rover instrument was permanently damaged during SkyCrane landing on Mars. Any future human surface missions to planetary bodies covered in regolith (e.g. Mars, Moon) would need to address ejec...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: StabiLux Biosciences, Inc

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be to develop new fluorophores for use with flow cytometers to enable the detection and sorting of thousands of cells per second. The market opportunity for fluorophores that are important imaging reagents for biomedical research is significant...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Treamin Energy, Inc.

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is for the mineral treatment technology for torrefied biomass. This technology enables the use of municipal solid waste (MSW) as a viable, and renewable fuel in coal power plant to commercialization. If successful, existing torrefaction technology ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Intelligent Fusion Technology, Inc.

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF14-AT17
Budget: 10/23/14 - 07/24/15

ABSTRACT: In this proposal a Game-theoretic Universal Anti-RFI Defense (GUARD) framework for Satellite Communications is proposed. Key components of the GUARD framework include i) Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) modeling and impact evaluation infrastructure, which allows the evaluation of the impact of RFI from various sources, and provides...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is to make chemistry more accessible by developing a rugged, compact, LED-based photometer that communicates data to other devices via Bluetooth. The photometer and data processing functions will be designed to work with the company?s simplified test kits for Green Analytical Chemistry. The...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microdevice Engineering LLC

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is the creation of a faster, more portable, affordable and reliable blood typing and red blood cell concentration test. This is important because trauma centers and hospitals rely extensively on blood donations provided by blood banks across...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nano Innovations, LLC

Institution: Michigan Technological University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AS-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project focuses on the growth of high quality Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs). BNNTs have both high thermal conductance that is an order of magnitude higher than aluminum, and also have an electronic bandgap of about 6 eV that makes them an excellent electrical insulator. These unique proper...
