Pocket-sized anthrax detector aids global agriculture

ntamination strategy.

Nanotechnology researchers George Bachand and Amanda Carroll-Portillo are working on improved strips for the lateral flow assay.

Bill Arndt a researcher in the International Biological Threat Reduction Program, who regularly works in the developing world, provided guidance on device design.

The device was tested by Julie Lovchik of the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of New Mexico, using virulent strains of B. anthracis. Testing at Sandia was done using nondisease-causing strains of the bacteria.

Sandia has licensed BaDx to Aquila, a New Mexico small business that specializes in the design and manufacture of technologies and services for nuclear security and international safeguards.

"We see a lot of potential for government customers and nongovernmental organizations as well as commercial markets," said Markku Koskelo, chief scientist for Aquila.

The team hopes to use the basic device design to develop tests for other types of disease-carrying bacteria such as salmonella and group A streptococcus, which causes strep throat. Future devices could be created to detect infectious diseases in humans and stem the spread of infectious diseases during epidemics.
