Nano-Enabled, Microfluidic Detection of Bacillus anthracis - R&D 100 Winner
Using the unique optical properties and ability to surface functionalize gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), a microfluidic lateral flow assay (LFA) was developed in CINT for the selective detection of Bacillus anthracis, the causal agent responsible for anthrax infections. The LFA component was integrated into a larger architecture to create a credit card-sized detection system (called BaDx - Bacillus anthracis Diagnostics) for use in low resource environments.
Integrated device enables the rapid, inexpensive detection of virulent B. anthracis in a manner that does not require technical expertise or specialized equipment, and reduces the risk of unintentional exposure and malfeasant use.

One Scientific Community Focused on Nanoscience Integration
The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) is a Department of Energy/Office of Science Nanoscale Science Research Center (NSRC) operating as a national user facility devoted to establishing the scientific principles that govern the design, performance, and integration of nanoscale materials. Through its Core Facility in Albuquerque and Gateway to Los Alamos Facility, CINT provides open access to tools and expertise needed to explore the continuum from scientific discovery to the integration of nanostructures into the micro- and macro world.
