DoD Issues SBIR Grants to Biosearch Technologies

Posted on Thu, Oct 08, 2009 @ 08:13 AM

Biosearch Technologies has been selected for two Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants from the Department of Defense (DoD). Both Phase 1 grants calls for the development of highly sensitive analyte specific reagents (ASRs) for a total of twelve pathogens.  The ASRs are qPCR based, but modified for field deployment.  Both grants include the following target pathogens: Dengue, Rift Valley Fever, Sand Fly Fever, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, Tick-Borne Encephalitis, Chikungunya, causative agents of typhus, spotted fever, anaplasmosis, Ehrlichioses, and Q fever.  If Phase I turns out to be a success, Biosearch expects this project to lead into a multiyear Phase II award.
