Development of Antibodies for the Detection of 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) by Immunoassay

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Fernando M. Rubio
Award Amount: $79,919.00
Abstract:
The aquaculture industry considers off-flavor in catfish to be one of the biggest problems facing the industry and representing a significant cost to catfish farmers and processors due to the unmarketability of the fish that have acquired these distasteful compounds. To avoid marketing fish with… More

Development of a Multiplexed Flow Cytometer Receptor Assay

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Fernando M. Rubio
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
It is well known that many chemicals may disturb the endocrine system. These endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can cause adverse effects on human health and wildlife. In 1996, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program… More

Development of Antibodies for the Detection of the Toxin Anatoxin-by Immunoassay

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Fernando M. Rubio, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green algae, form blooms that… More

Development of Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibodies Suitable for a Commercial Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) ELISA

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Fernando M. Rubio, President
Award Amount: $79,892.00
Abstract:
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical which does not occur naturally in the environment,it has been used in many commercial applications. A number of scientific findings since the late 1990's have elevated PFOAs to the category of great environmental concern beacuse of its… More

DEVELOPMENT OF A FAST SCREEN (ON-SITE) ANALYTICAL ASSAY FOR PYRIDINE HERBICIDES IN ANIMAL WASTE AND COMPOST

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Fernando Rubio, President/CSO
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
The object of this proposal is to develop a new analytical method (lateral flow immunochromatographic device) for the rapid and on-site detection of pyridine carboxylic acid herbicides (aminopyralid, clopyralid, picloram and triclopyr) in compost and animal waste. The availability of a screening… More

Development of Immunoreagents and Test Kits for the Detection of E. coli non-O157 STEC

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Fernando M. Rubio, President/CSO – 215-357-3911
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
E. coli are common bacteria and part of the normal flora of the GI tract. Some strains, including the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are able to produce a toxin (Shiga toxin), which can lead to serious human illnesses from mild diarrhea to life threatening conditions, such as hemolytic uremic… More
