Phase I

Phase I year

Phase I Amount
$99,970
ANP Technologies proposes to develop a sample concentration system that uses commercial hollow fiber filtration technology with permanent anti-fouling coatings to concentrate biological contaminants in water sources or supplies to a level high enough to be readily detected. The filter technology will allow simple and quick release of the contaminants into a much smaller volume without the use of recovery buffers, and be reusable. The concentrator can be used to monitor water supplies for a wide variety of Biological Warfare (BW) agents and non-BW water borne pathogens.

Phase II

Phase II year

Phase II Amount
$749,929
ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will build upon the lessons learned in the Phase I STTR effort, as well as our proprietary nanomaterials coating technology, which is utilized in our proposed detection systems.
