ORNL project earns top honor from Southeast tech transfer group

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Nov. 3, 2004 -- A technology that can scan living small animals and other biological objects has been honored as project of the year by the Southeastern Region of the Federal Laboratory Consortium.

The MicroCAT X-ray micro-computed tomography for biological research was named as the top project in the Southeast during the organization's Oct. 28 dinner in Orlando, Fla.

The FLC promotes technology commercialization among federal laboratories.

The MicroCAT technology enables mice and other small creatures to be screened for tumors and genetic study while they are still alive. The technology provides three-dimensional images of the subject being studied. The device saves time and money because biologists can screen subjects individually for internal mutations in seven to 20 minutes without sacrificing and dissecting the animals. They can be examined repeatedly. Cell research can also be conducted with this device.

The technology was developed by Shaun Gleason and Michael Paulus of ORNL's Engineering Science and Technology Division. The project is funded by DOE's Laboratory Directed Research and Development program.

Other members of the team are Derek Austin, Miljko Bobrek, Gary Alley, Kenneth Tobin and Chris McKinney of the Engineering Science and Technology Division.

Two other ORNL technologies earned Excellence in Technology Transfer Awards from the regional organization. They are the AquaSentinel real-time water supply protection monitor and the photo-molecular comb biomolecular separator.

The AquaSentinel system was developed as real-time in-the-field detection technology for water testing and for safeguarding large-scale domestic primary drinking water supplies. The availability of such systems will help ensure the safety of water supply systems across the United States.

The research was sponsored by DOE's Basic Energy Sciences program, the De
