  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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Recycling of Municipal and Industrial Solid Waste

    SBC: Resource Recovery Corporation of West Michigan            Topic: N/A

    The cost to the United States foundry industry to landfill the 12 billion pounds of spent sand and 4 billion pounds of process residual fines is approaching $300 million per year. The foundry industry has spent considerable effort on recycling the spent foundry sand that originally was used to produce molds in which the ferrous and nonferrous (primarily aluminum) parts were produced. However, ther ...

  8. An Innovative Sampler as a Reference Standard for Measurement of Particulate Matter Mass in Ambient Air

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ambient particulate matter (PM) mass exposure is determined by collecting the PM on a sample filter over a period of 24 hours. Because the composition of ambient PM is constantly changing, the PM mass measured using the reference method may not be representative of the PM levels in the atmosphere, primarily due to the loss of collected semi-volatile material that is present in the atmosphere durin ...

  9. An Innovative Sampler as a Reference Standard for Measurement of Particulate Matter Mass in Ambient Air

    SBC: Rupprecht& Patashnick Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Particulate matter (PM) in ambient air is comprised of many chemical species of varying vapor pressures. A direct-mass measurement of PM mass on filters is the basis of regulatory PM reference methods. The loss of semivolatile PM mass collected on filters and filter sampling artifacts can produce nonquantifiable biases in reference method measurements depending on the thermodynamic history of the ...
