Award List:

CONTROLLED-PERMEABILITY CONTAINER FOR FREEZING SPERM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Depsite advantages of disease control, frozen human sperm has been rarely used universally for donor artificial insemination because of perceived low fertility. glycerol (which may be contraceptive in humans as with other species) and egg yolk protein (which may be antigenic) can be removed by… More

CONTROLLED-PERMEABILITY MEMBRANE CONTAINER FOR CRYOPRESERVA-TION OF POULTRY SPERM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $48,000.00

CONTROLLED-PERMEABILITY MEMBRANE CONTAINER FOR CRYOPRESERVA-TION OF POULTRY SPERM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $190,000.00
Abstract:
Frozen poultry semen is not used commercially because the cryoprotectants most effective for sperm survival during freezing and thawing also are contraceptive. serial dilutioncentrifugation or conventional dialysis successfully reduce cryoprotectant concentration, but such processes are… More

STORAGE OF TURKEY SPERM IN UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTAL CHAMBERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Edward G Buss
Award Amount: $49,762.00

STORAGE OF TURKEY SPERM IN UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTAL CHAMBERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Edward G Buss
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
Fertilized turkey eggs can be produced commercially only by artificial insemination. current practical methods permit holding of turkey sperm for only 6 hours after collection. this allows only 2 hours for possible transport. solution to the current impasse requires regulation of oxygen… More

Assessment of Quality of Poultry Sperm

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $55,000.00

Assessment of Quality of Poultry Sperm

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $195,000.00
Abstract:
The poultry industry is dependent on efficient reproduction. Reproduction of broiler lines increasingly is a problem and already is limiting for turkeys. Currently, breeders or producers can identify males of low fertility only retrospectively after a costly failure. However, elimination of the… More

PROCESSING CRYOPRESERVED HUMAN SPERM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Amann, rupert p
Award Amount: $91,596.00

AMELIORATION OF FERTILIZING POTENTIAL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Amann, Rupert P
Award Amount: $99,491.00

N/A

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Roy H. Hammerstedt
Award Amount: $98,925.00
Abstract:
Not Available We propose a virtual rover agent that interacts with a virtual environment. This will enable the mission operations group and mechanical designers to check preliminary design characteristics before they begin detailed design and build physical prototypes.

PROCESSING CRYOPRESERVED HUMAN SPERM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Rupert P. Amann
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (Scanned from the applicant's description): Cryopreserved human sperm are essential for important therapies. With standard procedures, post-thaw quality of samples from many/most patients (donors are highly selected) is unacceptable, 40 percent of the… More

UPSEBP, A PROFERTILITY PROTEIN IN HUMAN SEMEN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Roy H. Hammerstedt
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Subfertility impacts >1.25 million men annually, although many ejaculate reasonable numbers of motile and normal sperm. Project goal is low-cost therapy to increase probability of pregnancy via IUI. We hypothesize some infertile men have insufficient UPSEBP… More
