Abstract: Current technologies for marking of landing zones as well as areas for search and rescue have significant drawbacks ranging from the additional weight of batteries for some systems to plastic and metallic debris left behind. There are clear advantages both operationally and environmentally to… more
Company: Agave BioSystems, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2004 / 2
Abstract: Because many chemical and biological toxins selectively target respiratory endothelial cells, a biosensor using these cells in combination with Electric Cell-substrate Impedance Sensing (ECIS) technology has many useful applications for detection and early warning monitoring of a broad range of… more
Company: Agave BioSystems, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: NASA / SBIR / 2004 / 1
Abstract: Due to the extensive amounts of data generated from the genome sequencing projects, the focus of genomics has shifted from elucidating DNA sequence to the interpretation of gene function. In addition, as proteins are most often the targets of drugs, a method of studying the genome at the protein… more
Company: Agave BioSystems, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2004 / 1
Abstract: Because endothelial cells organize to form a tight barrier under normal conditions, several electrical devices have been used to measure the electrical resistance of endothelial cell monolayers. An Electric Cell-substrate Impedance Sensing (ECIS) system can measure the electrical impedance of… more

Search for Either Criteria

When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections. For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.


Narrowing the Search Results

You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories. For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
