ECBC Scientists and Engineers Patent Four New Products To Assist The Warfighter In The Field

Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) personnel have the knowledge and training to work safely with the most dangerous compounds in the world in order to build or create chemical biological defense solutions. The expertise of its staff — a varied mix of scientists, technicians, engineers, support personnel, government employees, soldiers and contract personnel — offer a wide array of specialties and abilities that allow the Center to cover the full spectrum of CB research, engineering and operational support for the homeland and the warfighter. ECBC’s innovative workforce evolves CBrne defense technologies and capabilities worldwide. 

Most recently, the scientists and engineers at ECBC patented four new products, all of which will assist with protecting the warfighter in the field.  Those patents are:

Direct Quantification of Ribosome Inactivating Protein (Dr. Russell Dorsey)

Neck Dam Collar for use with Chemical-Biological Protective Masks and Hoods (Corey Grove)

Non-corrosive, Non-caustic, Non-flammable, Catalyst-based Decontaminant Formulation (Dr. Vipin Rastogi; Co-inventor – Dr. Steven Harvey)

Artificial Chimeras Engineered to Simulate Multiple Biological Threat Agents (Dr. Jose-Luis Sagripanti)
