  1. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  2. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  4. FIBEROPTIC VISION SYSTEM FOR HEAVY VEHICLES

    SBC: Triangle Research and Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WOULD EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A NOVEL FIBEROPTIC VISION SYSTEM FOR LARGE MOTOR VEHICLES. A NEW, BETTER MEANS OF SIDE AND REAR VISIONIS NEEDED FOR HEAVY TRUCKS AND BUSES. THE DRIVERS OF THESE VEHICLES HAVE DIFFICULTY SEEING OTHER VEHICLES IN TRAFFIC LANES TO THEIR IMMEDIATE RIGHT. WHEN THE CAB AND TRAILER OFTHE HEAVY TRUCK ARE AT AN ANGLED POSITION OR A HE ...

  6. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    In Phase I, a novel porous electrode was designed to demonstrate a rapid, simple assay for the detection of domoic acid in marine samples. During Phase II, methods to manufacture porous electrodes will be improved to enable high volume production of low-cost biosensors that can be connected to a potentiostat. These biosensors will be incorporated into a portable test kit for the quantitation of do ...
