  1. Improved Rapid Detection of Viable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: 05NCERA2

    Innovative Biotechnologies International, Inc., has reported previously a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence-Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposome nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology.  This assay system is based on the ability to immunocapture low nu ...

  2. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 05NCERC3

    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago.  PCBs are toxic and suspected to be carcinogenic to humans and therefore are monitored carefully.  Because of the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of transformers containing these chemicals, ...

  3. Sorbents for Desulfurization of Gasoline Blends

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Conventionally, deep desulfurization in a refinery is accomplished by a multistep process including hydrodesulfurization (HDS) over CoMo/Al2O3 and NiMo/Al2O3 catalysts and subsequent removal of the H2S. The HDS process, however, is not suited well to produce ultraclean (essentially sulfur free) transportation fuels. At the severe reaction conditions required for deep desulfurization, the olefins a ...

  4. Sustainable Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 05NCERD2

    Finite supplies of increasingly dirty petroleum, climate changes as a result of carbon dioxide emissions, and communities choking in pollution caused by manufacturing as well as their own solid wastes are pressing environmental problems. Because of these problems, sustainability is becoming a leading issue in the plastics industries; disposal options increasingly are limited in major markets such ...

  5. Field Analytical Model for Perchlorate

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    Perchlorate is a widely used component of solid fuel, missile and rocket propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. It has been shown to reduce iodide uptake into the thyroid gland. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found perchlorate contamination in 18 states and believes contamination may exist in as many as 39 states. In early January 2005, the National Academy of Science ...

  6. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  8. Real-Time Transformer Oil Polychlorinated Biphenyl Sensor

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) remain a significant environmental threat even though manufacturing of PCBs was discontinued 30 years ago. PCBs are toxic amd suspected to carcinogenic to humans and are therefore carefully monitored. Due to the chemical and thermal stability of PCBs in the environment and the continued use of rtansformers containing these chemicals, very specific regulations are ...

  10. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    We have previously reported a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposme nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology. This assay system is based upon the ability to immunocapture low numbers (i.e., five or more) oocysts and heat shock them to induc ...
