Abstract:Fiber optic measurement of aflatoxins will be performed suing optrodes specific for aflatoxin. One optrode will consist of aflatoxin linked by adsorption or immobilized by sulfhydryl groups on the tip of a fiber optic bundle. For determination of aflatoxin using immobilized F(ab') antibody, the… more
Abstract:Use of chromates as corrosion inhibi.tors in coatings, adhesives and sealants is a well established technology. However, toxicity and waste disposal problems have led to the urgent need for development of an environmentally benign substitute for chromium compounds in coatings and sealants, which is… more
Abstract:TWO SPECIES OF EDIBLE MUSHROOMS WILL BE GROWN OUTDOORS ON A VARIETY OF AGRICULTURAL WASTE PRODUCTS WHICH COME FROM MAJOR LOCAL CROPS: RICE, SUGAR CANE AND COTTON. ABANDONED FARM EQUIPMENT WILL BE CONVERTED AND USED AS PASTEURIZATION EQUIPMENT FOR STERILIZATION OF THE SUBSTRATE. LOW COST METHODS OF… more
Abstract:The long-term goal of this project is to develop a commercially available vaginal suppositorycontaining a H2O2-producing strain of Lactobacillus for use in colonization of the vagina. Vaginallactobacilli are the primary microbial defense against infection. Lactobacillus predominant vaginal florais… more
Abstract:Synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides play a central role in molecular biology research, for example,in DNA sequencing, DNA amplification, and hybridization. A novel "one-pot" enzymatic method willreplace the cumbersome and expensive phosphoramidite chemical method. The new method promisesincreased speed,… more
Abstract:Technology International Incorporated (TII) shall investigate concepts and techniques to acquire the scientific knowledge and understanding necessary for development of shipboard dishwashing technologies for cleaning dishes to an acceptable level without the generation of wastewater, or production… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE PERFORMING RESEARCH INVOLVING A RAPID PROTO-TYPE OF A MICROPROCESSOR SIMULATION TOOLKIT (MSTKIT) AND EDUCATION SOFTWARE FOR LEARNING THE INTRICACIES OF COMPUTER PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY. THE KIT IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR CUSTOMIZATION OF EDUCATION MODULES FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR LEVEL UP… more
Abstract:THE RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE HUMAN FACTORS ASPECT OF HOSPITAL PATIENT MONITORING SYSTEMS AND SEEKS IMPROVEMENT THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF ERGONOMICS TO THE EVALUATION OF INTENSIVE CARE UNITS (ICU'S). THE INTENSIVE CARE PATIENT MONITORING SYSTEM IS BEING REVIEWED AND ANALYZED IN TERMS OF HUMAN TASKS… more
Abstract:THE PROBLEM ADDRESSED IS THAT OF EXTRACTING INFORMATION ABOUT EVENTS ASSOCIATED WITH A PHYSICAL SYSTEM BY PROCESSING A LARGE NUMBER OF DATA STREAMS FLOWING FROM SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTATION. IT IS ASSUMED THAT DECEPTIVE DATA PORTIONS ARE IMBEDDED, WITH NO A-PRIORI MODELS DESCRIBING SYSTEM BEHAVIOR.… more
Abstract:The overall objective is to develop new anticancer agents which are cytotoxic in photodynamic therapy (PDT). It has been shown by Morgan and Boyer that pyrromethene boron difluoride (P-BF2) complexes can offer this property. In Phase I, substituted (P-BF2) complexes will be prepared, characterized… more
Abstract:The basic scientific understanding acquired in development of electrokinetic remediation technology displays its potential in insitu removal of heavy metals, radionuclides and some organic chemicals from soils. One specific problem associated with the current processing technique is precipitation of… more
Abstract:THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A MARKETABLE, INTERACTIVE VIDEODISK (IVD) MODULE PROTOTYPE THAT EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY PREPARES PATIENTS FOR SELF-CARE MANAGEMENT OF ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE AND ACCOMMODATES ADULTS WITH LOW LITERACY AND WITHOUT COMPUTER SKILLS. THE MODULE, A… more
Abstract:Conventional Beamforming (CBF) provides optimum signal detection under ideal ocean conditions (single plane-wave in isotropic, spatially incoherent noise). These conditions never exist in real ocean environments. In order to improve on CBF's performance, Neptune Sciences, Inc. (NSI) has developed… more
Abstract:A patented (U.S. Patent #4,950,594-1990) inexpensive, quick, precise method of testing substances for toxicity has been developed, LUMITOX (R), which measures quenching, in the presence of toxins, of the natural bioluminescence of the abundant marine dinoflagellate Pyrocystis lunula. The LUMITOX (R)… more
Abstract:One goal of the human genome project is the automated preparation of plasmid DNA from E. coli for subsequent DNA sequencing and restriction mapping. I have developed a radically new procedure for the preparation of plasmid DNA called Sequential Enzymatic Digestion. This method does not employ… more
Abstract:Technology International Incorporated (TII) will develop, design, fabricate, and test an ultrasonic dehydration process that can be used to dry ingredients in as little as 10 seconds, to produce ingredients with excellent quality for dental liquid meals, high calorie compact food modules, and other… more
Abstract:THE RESEARCH PROJECT INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN APPROACH FOR REDUCING OR ELIMINATING THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PROCESSING SECONDARY FERROUS METAL AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVE COSTS. BASED ON A REVIEW OF THE ACTUAL INDUSTRIAL PRACTICE AND OPERATION DATA, IMPROVED METHODS OF GRADING, MARKING, AND… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
