Chandler, Arizona, November 8, 2010 – BCR Diagnostics, Inc., a biotechnology company specialized in developing a new line of cell-based biosensors, announced today it has received a cash grant from the federal government under the QTDP for developing a rapid biological indicator (rBI) for steam sterility testing. The QTDP was created as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 to provide support for innovative projects that are determined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to advance U.S. competitiveness in the fields of life, biological, and medical sciences.

"The grant will be used to expand our platform of rapid biological indicators for steam sterility testing to other sterilization processes, such as Ethylene Oxide and Hydrogen Peroxide," said Boris Rotman, CSO at BCR. "There is an urgent need in the healthcare industry for more rapid biological indicators that are as reliable as traditional spore cultures requiring 24-48 hour for completion."
