Substance with High Affinity for Large Antigen Molecules

A company seeks a process of making high-affinity antibodies (or other substances) that can bind rapidly to antigens of large molecular sizes, such as proteins. Achieving high-affinity binding is important for expanding detection limits and achieving diagnostics in short amounts of time. This need is for a highly sensitive, high-affinity antibody or process of designing and making a substance that works as well as antibodies in having a high affinity to a given analyte, and a high speed of binding.

Self-Contained Therapeutic Thermal Wrap

A company seeks technology leading to a flexible, adhesive thermal patch or wrap for sore muscles that provides lasting warmth for 8 to 12 hours or more. The technology should not involve a chemical active in contact with the skin. The heating effect should be able to be activated anywhere, without the use of plugs or wires. It should provide perceivable relief from discomfort within about one minute, and fit comfortably over wrists or knees without being overly obtrusive.

Methods to Detect Minute Quantities of Acrylamide in Foods

A large global food company seeks a rapid, inexpensive, and reliable test that can detect even small levels of acrylamide in fried snack foods. What is desired is a rapid, simple, inexpensive method that could be performed essentially online in a fried snack plant by line operators or quality assurance analysts. Ideally, it would require little, if any, sample preparation, would provide results in less than one hour, and would be selective, sensitive, and quantitative for acrylamide in a potato chip.

Heating Different Zones of Food in a Microwave Oven

An organization seeks technology to enable foods to become crispy when heated in a home microwave oven. The outer surface should heat and become (or remain) crispy, while the interior body of the food should heat only as appropriate. The organization seeks materials, ingredients, or other technologies that enable the zones, while physically part of the same food, to respond differently to the same radiant microwave energy environment.
