  2. Development of a Prototype Process for Production of Tapes and Labels with Vegetable-Oil-Based Pressure Sensitive Adhesives

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: 88

    Pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) are those sticky materials that can stick to various substrates under light pressure at room temperature. PSAs are widely used for production of tapes such as duct tape and package tapes, labels, stamps, post-it® notes and many other products. At present, PSAs are mainly derived from petrochemical-based polymers such as polyacrylates. Petrochemicals are not ...

  3. Next-Generation Cost-Effective Small and Mid-size Farm GMP Compliance Process for Dietary Supplements

    SBC: BLUE MEADOWS FARM LABS LLC            Topic: 812

    Small and mid-size farms that produce herbal supplements are under new, stringent FDA regulatory and safety requirements because of a change in definition from "food product" to "dietary supplement." This status change has made these farms subject to FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations that are difficult and very expensive to implement. During a three-year period, federal in ...

  6. The use of acousto-ultrasonics to determine the quality of the brazing and grinding of carbide tipped cutting tools

    SBC: S.T.S., INC.            Topic: 81

    Thin saws, although more difficult to manufacture and use, conserve valuable wood fiber resources and make the users of these thin saws more competitive globally. As such, thinner sawblades are growing in popularity in spite of the "challenges" associated with their manufacture and use. Three of those challengers revolve around brazing tips into thinner sawblades1) Because the steel is thinner, le ...

  7. Biological feedback control of LED grow lights

    SBC: PhytoSynthetix            Topic: 813

    In controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems (greenhouses and indoor plant production facilities) light is the most energy consuming, and yet the least controlled, input factor for plant growth. Plants can dissipate up to 80% of the absorbed light energy as heat through physiological protective mechanisms (non photochemical quenching) and this light cannot be used for plant growth. Light e ...

  8. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...

  10. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...
