  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: NA

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are currently the leading example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that ca ...

  2. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volts version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resis ...

  4. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  5. Production of Refined Cane Sugar from Sugar Mills without an Attached Refinery

    SBC: CHOU, CHI            Topic: 85

    The one-step cane sugar process respondsto the USDA NIFA SBIR Program Priorities in regards to agriculturally related manufacturing technology and energy efficiency. The technology developed from this project will (1) reduce the energy and water consumed per cane sugar product, (2) provide an economic alternative for producing U.S. Food Grade sugar worldwide, (3) eliminate hazardous solid waste pr ...

  6. An Improved Sanitizer For Grade A Shell Eggs

    SBC: Biomedical Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The incidence of food borne outbreaks associated with Salmonella has risen steadily since the mid1970's. The monetary cost of salmonellosis has been estimated at $4 billion annually. The primarycause of salmonellosis has been linked to the consumption of eggs or egg products containingSalmonella enteritidis and 80% of all eggs consumed in the United States are transported to thepurchaser in the ...

  7. Commercial Application Of Molecular

    SBC: Lgl Ecological Genetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the U.S., there are more than 135,000 captive deer and elk on 2,000 ranches in 42 states. Someranchers have used deer to replace or supplement traditional livestock. Primary products of deer aremeat and velvet antler, and the industry is growing. We propose to assist the industry and regulatoryagencies using molecular genetics. Ranchers want genetic tests to help establish breeding programs ...

  8. A Rapid Detection Kit For Staphylococcal

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates the rapid detection ofstaphylococcal contaminated foods. Staphylococcal food poisoning continues to be a major publichealth concern being the second leading cause of bacterial food poisoning in the United States. Thebacteria secrete staphylococcal enterotoxins and as little as 0.1¿g of SEA can produce the clinicalfeature of st ...

  9. Ozone Conversion Of Low Quality Feed Stocks

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many crop residues, feed byproducts, forages and other biomass have little or no nutritional value asanimal feed. Lignin in these materials is the most significant factor that limits the availability ofstructural carbohydrate (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose) to microbial flora of ruminant animals.Many chemical treatment methods have been investigated and most result in the production ofundesir ...

  10. A Medical Alert System For Emergency

    SBC: Ortech Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed product to be developed will be an inexpensive system to monitor activities ofpersons who must, or who prefer to live alone, and to alert a responsible individual on a timelybasis of potential medical emergency situations which are indicated based on this activity or lackof activity. An expert system will monitor the activity levels as well as simple user inputs suchas codes for ever ...
