DoD Grants Microchip Biotechnologies $365K SBIR Grant to Develop Handheld Biowarfare Detector

NEW YORK, April 6 (GenomeWeb News) - The US Department of Defense has awarded Dublin, Calif.-based Microchip Biotechnologies $365,000 to continue developing its handheld biowarfare-agent detector.


The one-year SBIR grant will help Microchip Biotechnologies pay for a prototype NanoBioSentinel platform, which conducts immunoassay and nucleic acid tests in a microfluidic chip-based format.


The grant can be renewed for a second year of identical funding.
