Home > Press > Platypus Technologies has received a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $600,000

Abstract:
Platypus Technologies, LLC a life sciences nanotechnology company has been awarded a Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $600,000 from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The funds will be used to develop a sensor for simultaneous detection of multiple air pollutants utilizing the Company's proprietary liquid crystal-based technology. Development of this sensor will enable the collection of exposure data that is quantitative, temporal and spatial. It will facilitate assessment of the role of environmental toxins in human diseases. Additional expertise for the project will be provided through collaboration with The Boeing Company. Platypus Technologies has received $15.6 million in federal funding to develop nanotechnology products for the physical and life sciences.
