RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., 16 Nov. 2005. U.S. Army researchers are asking industry for ideas on how to develop pathogen/toxin concentration systems that are suitable for military environments.

Officials of the Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command (RDECOM) in Research Triangle Park, N.C., issued a broad agency announcement Nov. 15 on the pathogen/toxin concentration system research. The solicitation number is W911NF-06-R-0002.

The project focuses on developing pathogen/toxin concentration systems technologies that will meet or exceed existing performance and protection specifications.

Systems must be able to provide faster, more efficient recovery than today's technologies afford, and provide for reduced disposables, reduced costs, and smaller physical size than are available today.

Full and partial solutions will be considered and evaluated for pathogen/toxin concentration systems that are regulatory compliant, robust, and effective at a reasonable cost.

Successful candidates must have a clear path to regulatory approval, production, and end user utility, Army officials say.

Interested companies should submit their ideas to RDECOM by 15 Feb. 2006. To submit ideas, or for more information, contact the RDECOM Acquisition Center, Attn: AMSSB-ACR, Research Triangle Park Contracting Division, P.O. Box 12211, Research Triangle Park, N.C., 27709-2211.
