TISSUE FIXATION APPARATUS FOR FLIGHT EXPERIMENTATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: H.w. Scheld , Investigator
Award Amount: $484,000.00
Abstract:
The complex biological research aimed at probing biological response on shuttle/spacelab or space station will involve the in-flight treatment of cells, tissues or small organisms in preparation for microscopic analysis. there is a need for equipment capable of performing the broad range of tissue… More

IN-FLIGHT ACQUISITION OF ENGINEERING DATA FOR PLANT GROWTH SYSTEMS DESIGN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: H.w. Scheld , Investigator
Award Amount: $481,750.00
Abstract:
The use of higher plants in support of space habitability is a logical and reasonable goal in planning for long term space activity. however, the concepts and data for accomplishment of this goal are not currently available. the basis for this project is the recognition that effective design of zero… More

SHORT-LIVED ISOTOPE TECHNOLOGY FOR EVALUATING PLANT GENOTYPE RESPONSES TO DROUGHT AND CO2 STRESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. Charles E. Magnuson , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00

A METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ATMOSPHERES FOR SPACE LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: John D Goeschl , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
It is generally accepted that higher plants will serve as important components of environmental conditioning and food production systems for future space or planetary surface habitats. because of structural considerations it is likely that atmospheric composition and pressure will be radically… More

SHORT-LIVED ISOTOPE TECHNOLOGY FOR EVALUATING PLANT GENOTYPE RESPONSES TO DROUGHT AND CO2 STRESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr. Charles E. Magnuson , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Modern breeding, genetic engineering, and bio-technologies, offer remarkable potential for improved performance of stress tolerant crop plants. these methods, however have often produced plants requiring greater inputs of water, nutrients, pest control, energy, and management costs. to avoid such… More

A BIOREACTOR FOR SCRENNING AND PRODUCTION OF HIGH VALUE SECONDARY PLANT METABOLITES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,077.00
Abstract:
The biochemical and synthetic capacity of higher plants, as shown by their natural content of substances, has been used for centuries in supplying materials important in pharmacology and in flavors and fragrances. many of these secondary products are in short supply and an enormous effort has to be… More
