  1. Development of Antibodies for the Detection of 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) by Immunoassay

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    The aquaculture industry considers off-flavor in catfish to be one of the biggest problems facing the industry and representing a significant cost to catfish farmers and processors due to the unmarketability of the fish that have acquired these distasteful compounds. To avoid marketing fish with off-flavor, fish are screened for flavor quality before harvesting. Current quantitative chemical analy ...

  2. Development of Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibodies Suitable for a Commercial Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) ELISA

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical which does not occur naturally in the environment,it has been used in many commercial applications. A number of scientific findings since the late 1990's have elevated PFOAs to the category of great environmental concern beacuse of its persistence, and the potential for bioaccumulation and biomagnification. Effective environmental and health pr ...

  3. Development of Dissolved Oxygen & Carbon Dioxide Control System for Large Scale, Intensive Marine Commercial Aquaculture Recirculating Sys.

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to close the gap between an increasing demand for high quality seafood products and a marine fisheries near maximum sustainable yields. Intensive recirculation systems are regarded as one critical component of a commercially viable marine aquaculture development program. However, the application of recirculating technology for the production of ...

  4. Development of Production and Nutrition Characteristics of HISTAR: Beta II Evaluation

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Commercial microalgal production still relies heavily on batch culture methods. Recent investigations have been successful in the development of enclosed photobioreactors, though mostly still at the research level. Due to several factors, production costs of continuous culture methods remain high and thwart the adoption within the commercial aquaculture sector. This project will investigate the us ...

  6. DecisionTree: A Framework for Location-Based Business Sitting Decision in Rural America

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Small businesses are the bedrock of the American economy. To bring economic development to rural America, these regions must have more effective tools for attracting and retaining the businesses that will provide the jobs and investment these communities need to thrive. The proposal seeks to apply an existing technology, Geographic Information Systems, on a proven platform, DecisionTree, in an inn ...

  7. Recreation Trail Motor Vehicle Barrier- Protecting Rural Environments and Providing Access to People Using Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Recreation trails are a key component of the social, economic and health of rural communities. People with mobility impairments are often excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs), to control livestock or wildlife, as an access point in a fenced area, or for a variety of other reasons. Many p ...

  8. Development of an Industrial On-Line Sensor

    SBC: Bradley Experimentation Software Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The need for economical on line sensors in the food industry is clear. Discussions with the food industry have led us to conclude that existing sensors do not meet their needs in terms of price and accuracy. Such a sensor must be non-contact and sufficiently rugged to withstand the industrial environment. Most important, it must be robust enough to accurately measure one component (i.e. salinity) ...

  9. Siphon-Infiltration Trenches for Riparian and Water Quality Improvement

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We have developed a novel siphon-infiltration trench system to mange water and sediment budgets in riparian systems. We have demonstrated in the laboratory and developed a numerical model showing the three hydrologically-distinct flow regimes in a infiltrating siphon system: 1) infiltrating flow at low-flow rates, 2) cycling outflow at intermediate-flow rates, and 3) constant outflow at high-flow ...

  10. Technical Feasibility of Field Maceration of Upgrading Nutritional Value of Bermudagrass Hay & Implications for Rural Dev. in LA

    SBC: E & E Research            Topic: N/A

    The waste of unprocessed vegetable matter from normal harvesting can be used to create feeds for livestock and the pulp can be used to produce methanol for fuel. We feel that we should use all resources to their fullest potential. To create a refined machine that will allow the field processing of current waste products into viable feed and fuel products.
