  5. Ultra-High Efficiency Ethylene Scrubber to Reduce Cold Storage Costs of Produce

    SBC: Sonata Scientific            Topic: 813

    The importance of improving postharvest handling can be understood in terms of the primary impact of poor postharvest care--food loss. Technologies for improving postharvest handling focus on extending the shelf life of the fruit or vegetable while maintaining or improving upon the quality of the produce. A major achievement in prolonging produce storage life has been the implementation of cold st ...

  9. Nitrate and Phosphate Biosensor for Handheld Monitoring of Water, Soil and Crops

    SBC: Nitrate Elimination Co Inc, The            Topic: 84

    NECi proposes to develop a low cost, handheld device similar in form and function to the glucose meters used by diabetics, but for measurement of the plant nutrients nitrate and phosphate. The inexpensive meter will use disposable sensor strips. Sensing is based on immobilized enzyme films "printed" onto the electrode material of the sensor strips. Recombinant enzymes are the sensing agents: nitra ...
