TECHNOLOGY/BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY: AQUEOUS URANYL DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION USING BACTERIAL CELLS
LLNL Industrial Partnerships & Commercialization, Livermore, CA.
Federal Business Opportunities, Solicitation FBO416-19, 2019

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is offering the opportunity to enter into a collaboration to further develop and commercialize its novel innovation, Aqueous Uranyl Detection and Quantification Using Bacterial Cells (patent application PCT/US18/61667). LLNL researchers have developed whole-cell biosensors that can be used in aqueous samples for sensitive and selective in situ detection of the uranyl oxycation, with sensor functionality confirmed by detection of U concentrations as low as 1 uM in groundwater samples. LLNL seeks industry partners with a demonstrated ability to bring such inventions to market. Written expressions of interest are due by 11:59 PM ET on March 11, 2019. https://www.fbo.gov/spg/DOE/LLNL/LL/FBO416-19/listing.html
