  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. BIOSCRUBBING VOLATILE NITROAROMATIC POLLUTANTS FROM AIR: BENCH-SCALE FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS BY BIOSCRUBBING WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO THEIR FEASIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY IN BENCH-SCALE EXPERIMENTS. A MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM ENRICHED ON SELECTED NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS SUCH AS NITROBENZENE OR NITROTOLUENE WILL BE IMMOBILIZED ON A POROUS SOLID MATRIX PACKED INTO A SCRUBBING COLUMN. MEASURED VOLUMES OF AIR, CONTAINING KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NITR ...

  5. FERROALLOY FROM CHROMIUM PLATING SLUDGE WASTE

    SBC: Climax Research Services            Topic: N/A

    SLUDGE WASTE CONTAINING CR(VI) FROM CHROMIUM PLATING OPERATIONS IS CLASSIFIED AS HAZARDOUS AND ITS DISPOSAL IS A MAJOR CONCERN. IT CAN BE RECOVERED FOR FUTURE METAL USE IN REMELTING OPERATIONS, CAN BE STORED, OR CAN BE DISPOSED AFTER MODIFICATION TO A LEGALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM. IN PHASE I, THE CONVERSION OF SLUDGE WASTE FROM CHROMIUM PLATING OPERATIONS INTO FERROCHROMIUM ALLOYS IS PROPOSED. BY MEANS ...

  7. A HAND-HELD LEAD DETECTOR

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE MID-EIGHTIES, APPROXIMATELY THREE MILLION CHILDRED BETWEEN SIX MONTHS AND FIVE YEARS OLD HAD POISONOUS BLOOD LEAD CONCENTRATIONS DUE TO PAINT. THERE IS RISK FOR ADULTS IN THE PAINT, AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING, AND CERAMIC INDUSTRIES. THE NATION COULD SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF LEAD POISONING IF ONE WERE ABLE TO MEASURE LEAD USING A INEXPENSIVE, PORTABLE DEVICE. CURRENT LEAD MEA ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. HIGH EFFICIENCY ACTIVATED CARBON FOR DRINKING WATER TREATMENT

    SBC: Mega-carbon            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH EFFICIENCY ACTIVATED CARBON GRANULE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DRINKING WATER TREATMENT. THE FOUNDATION FOR THIS HIGH EFFICIENCY GRANULE IS A SUPERACTIVATED CARBON WITH A BET SURFACE AREA IN EXCESS OF 3000 M(2)/GM USING THE STANDARD PROCEDURE BY BRUNAUER, EMMETT, AND TELLER, AND AN IODINE NUMBER GREATER THAN 3000 MG/G. TWO GRANULATIN TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE EXPLORED: SPHERICAL AGGLOMERATION AND EXT ...
