Phase I

Phase I year
2004
Phase I Amount
$99,934
This goal is to construct a low-cost, polymeric, nanomaterial-based assay for the detection of multiple biological agents in a single device using our nanomanipulation technology to meet or exceed the sensitivity of the current two-line assays used in DoD applications. The nanodevice will exhibit no background streaking, cross bleeding, or other flow problems often associated with laminar flow devices. We expect to demonstate a multiplex device capable of detecting between 5 and 8 biothreat agents

Phase II

Phase II year
2005 (last award dollars: 2005)
Phase II Amount
$749,864
We propose to continue the development of rapid, handheld multiplexed assays for the detection of biological warfare agents and an associated handheld automatic reader. We will rigorously evaluate the 5-target assay developed in Phase I, and develop an 8-target multiplex during this Phase II project. The handheld automatic reader will undergo further modification and improvements to provide for the 8 target multiplexed assay.
