  3. Multiple Foodborne Pathogen Resequencing Microarray-based Diagnostic Assay

    SBC: TESSARAE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Most contemporary diagnostic tests are designed to detect and identify a single particular pathogen if it may be present in a given specimen. Furthermore such assays typically rely upon a short biomarker, or short signature gene sequence element to INDIRECTLY determine if the specimen is or is not present in the specimen. Such assays are inevitably vulnerable to false negative or false positive re ...

  4. A COMPUTERIZED HOG FEEDING PROCESS FOR IMPROVED FEED CONVERSION AND GROWTH RATE

    SBC: Biomat Feeding Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. PORK INDUSTRY IS CURRENTLY OPERATING WITH RELATIVELY INEFFECIENT FEED CONVERSION RATIOS OF 3.4 TO 3.5 DURING THE GROWER-FINISHER STAGES, AND IS TRYING TO MEET CONSUMER DEMANDS FOR LEANER PRODUCT WHILE FACING STIFF PRICE COMPETITION FROM THE POULTRY INDUSTRY. THE PORK INDUSTRY WILL NEED TO IMPROVE PRODUCTION EFFICIENCIES TO REMAIN PROFITABLE WHILE MAINTAINING OR INCREASING MARKET SHARE AT ...

  5. Development of co-immobilized enzyme pellets to replace GMOs for cellulosic ethanol

    SBC: SuGanit Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Economic bioethanol production is critically dependent upon the ability to convert both the hexose (C6) and pentose (C5) sugars resulting from cellulose and hemicellulose components of biomass. C5 sugars are not readily fermentable by native organisms. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are designed to ferment xylose, but their stability, ethanol yield, environmental impact, and survival under ...

  6. Foam in Place Mulching Method for Specialty Crops

    SBC: C And A Country Gardens            Topic: N/A

    Frothed foams will be prepared and applied in place as low cost mulches for weed control in small plot specialty crop operations. Foam mixes will be formulated from degradable natural polymers including gelatins and starches. Fillers will be common cellulosic mulch ingredients such as crushed seed hulls and corncobs. A conventional portable spray tank modified with an impeller blade will mechan ...

  7. Production of a Value-Added Crop for Greater Human Nutrition

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A. Situation or Problem The U.S. population has a deficit of dietary Ca, with 55% of men and 78% of women in the United States not meeting the US recommended daily allowance (RDA) for Ca of 1000 mg/d, putting them at risk for developing osteoporosis. One in two women and one in eight men over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture, resulting in more than $10 billion in health car ...

  8. HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF SPACEBOARD II

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    AN APPARATUS AND TECHNIQUE FOR HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF A NEW STRUCTURAL MATERIAL, KNOWN AS SPACEBOARD, WILL BE DEVELOPED. SPACEBOARD IS A NOVEL STRUCTURAL BOARD COMPOSED OF PULPED WOOD FIBER. THE SPACEBOARD CONCEPT WAS INVENTED AT THE FOREST PRODUCTS LABORATORY SEVERAL YEARS AGO. THE BOARDS ARE PRODUCED BY PRESSING FIBER AGAINST COMPRESSIBLE RUBBER MOLDS TO FORM A STRUCTURE HAVING A SMOOTH FACE, BACK ...

  9. Tangential X-Ray CT Scanner System for Log Scanning

    SBC: Omega International Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an affordable yet production speed Tangential x-ray CT scanner system for an inside 3-dimensional look of the logs. The present x-ray CT scanners are designed for medical or other research applications and are not suitable for production environment generally found in forest product mills. The prior experimental work by many scientists in the forest product industries have ...

  10. Utilize corn derived products driven from ethanol production for horticultural weed control, a natural fertiilzer with enhanced plant growth

    SBC: Summit Seed, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethanol production is a rapidly growing industry in the United States where corn is the principal feedstock. The dry milling process includes the whole corn kernel for ethanol production, and the co-product is dried distiller grains with solubles, DDGS, primarily used for animal feeds. The dry milling process currently accounts for approximately 75 percent of the domestic ethanol production. The p ...
