ABSTRACT

Development of Nanofibrous Membranes towards Biological Sensing   [open pdf - 6MB]

"Homeland Security and the Veterinary Services Activity, Office Of The Surgeon General (VSA, OTSG) have identified food as potential instruments for covert acts of bioterrorism involving Chem/Bio agents. Therefore, VSA, OTSG has established the need to develop technologies that can be used in the presumptive screening of food to minimize the health effects on the warfighter. Currently, there are no deployable biological detection capabilities that are truly rapid when sample preparation is included in the detection process."
