DARPA Tests Advanced Chemical Sensors

Next-generation algorithms and sensors for detecting chemical threats put through their paces in SIGMA+ program. May hold promise for military use in development of large region scale chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive threat threat detection networks. DARPA’s SIGMA program, which began in 2014, has demonstrated a city-scale capability for detecting radiological and nuclear threats

”Brain-on-a-Chip” Helps Test Chem/Bio Agent Effects, Develops Countermeasures & Antidotes

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists and engineers have developed a “brain-on-a-chip” device aimed at testing and predicting the effects of biological and chemical agents, disease or pharmaceutical drugs on the brain over time without the need for human or animal subjects. The device, part of the Lab’s iCHIP (in-vitro Chip-Based Human Investigational Platform) project,

ECBC Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination

Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination ECBC researchers, working with CBI Polymer, explored how a HydroGel can be modified to decontaminate surfaces contaminated with biological agents such as spores of Bacillus anthracis, which are capable of causing anthrax disease in humans and animals.HydroGel is a biosynthetic polymer that
