April 2007
SHARING OPTIONS:

WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass.Pressure BioSciences Inc. recently announced that it has been awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The grant will help fund experiments to demonstrate the feasibility of using the company's patented Pressure Cycling Technology (PCT) in the development of a novel, automated sample preparation procedure for the extraction and subsequent purification of nucleic acids from a variety of biological samples in a single processing step. It is expected that this procedure will use the company's currently available Barocycler instrument, with minor modifications, and will also involve the development of new disposable processing containers and reagents. The SBIR grant is for a total of $150,000, is effective immediately, and covers grant-related research expenses over the next six months. If successful, at the end of the study, the company expects to submit a request for follow-on, SBIR Phase II grant funding.
