Award List:

Multi-Zone Flow Through Membrane and Reagents for Onsite Detection of Domoic Acid

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Thomas N. Stewart, President
Award Amount: $95,000.00
Abstract:
There is a need for a simple, affordable method for measuring domoic acid in the field. This project will develop a rapid, onsite kit for domoic acid featuring a filter membrane that produces a readable color response without need for instrumentation. The filter membrane contains three or more… More

Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Thomas Stewart – (866) 861-5836
Award Amount: $94,206.78
Abstract:
There is a need for a simple, portable, quantitative method to monitor the presence of Harmful Algal Blooms. Electrochemical detection offers some advantages for analysis, but traditional sensors are not practical for routine field use. Adapting colorimetric immunoassays on porous, flow-through… More

Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOC / NOAA
Principal Investigator: Thomas N. Stewart, President – (866) 861-5836
Award Amount: $400,000.00
Abstract:
In Phase I, a novel porous electrode was designed to demonstrate a rapid, simple assay for the detection of domoic acid in marine samples. During Phase II, methods to manufacture porous electrodes will be improved to enable high volume production of low-cost biosensors that can be connected to a… More
