InnovaPrep LLC, has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research Grant (SBIR) by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The three year grant totaling $1 million, will focus on improving the ability to detect airborne biothreats from pandemic outbreaks and bioterrorist events, a cornerstone mission of DHS.
Multiple products will ultimately be developed from the technology developed under this grant which will involve up to seven partnering companies and research institutions including AlburtyLab, Inc.. The planned system will be an integratable fractionation/concentration system for use as a link between aerosol collectors and identifiers in autonomously operated detection platforms.
“The initial client for this technology will be DHS, but other important opportunities exist within the Department of Defense, EPA, and Health and Human Services” stated Andy Page, President and Chief Technology Officer of InnovaPrep.
