Licensing of ORNL’s lightweight, portable sensor for the identification of chemical-biological species UT-Battelle LLC (UT-Battelle), the management and operating contractor for the United States Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), is seeking expressions of interest from companies interested in licensing and commercializing ORNL’s intellectual property in the technology area of high-sensitivity Raman spectroscopy for the identification of chemical-biological species. ORNL’s Advanced Biomedical Science and Technology Group has developed a lightweight, portable sensor for the identification of chemical-biological species, including explosives, toxic chemicals, and drugs. (nicknamed RAMiTS - RAMan Integrated Tunable Sensor.) This instrument is based upon high-sensitivity Raman spectroscopy, an optical technique that can measure the vibrational signature of most chemicals, both solids and liquids. To obtain this chemical signature, laser light is focused onto the sample, and the resulting scattered light is collected and detected. Using this instrument for chemical and biological sample identification has several advantages over conventional analysis, including these: The user need not contact the sample. Analysis is rapid, in most cases 11 seconds or less. An embedded computer system performs rapid automated sample identification. User interaction with the system is via a touch screen. RAMiTS operates on battery power, with a single-charge lifetime of 3 hours. The instrument is watertight and can be decontaminated after exposure to CBW agents. The technology transfer process will be facilitated through appropriate licensing of UT-Battelle’s intellectual property and associated research and development undertaken cooperatively between UT-Battelle and the licensee and funded by the licensee. Research and development will focus on transitioning the technology from the current laboratory demonstration stage to commercialization. Interested companies with experience and expertise commensurate with the requirements of this commercialization effort are invited to respond to this announcement. Companies interested in this opportunity may obtain more detailed technical information and a description of the licensing and cooperative research and development process by submitting a statement of interest, including a written description of their company and its activities and an explanation of their potential application of the technology. No licensing intermediaries please. This is not a procurement activity.
