  2. 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 ...

  3. A Milk-Based MicroRNA Assay to Stratify BLV Infectiousness in Dairy Cattle

    SBC: Northstar Cooperative, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Milk samples are a rich matrix of diagnostically relevant biomarkers that capture the acute physiology of the dairy cow. Almost all serological ELISAs are applicable in milk and, as forensic technologies continue to become a superior diagnostic tool in the dairy industry, the use of genetic markers in milk are becoming the forefront of dairy molecular diagnostics. Established national DHI sampling ...

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

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            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 ...

  5. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  6. Development of rapid, point-of-use dry chemistry dip-stick assays for food quality. Phase II work will focus on completion of the development of a rapid test for total polar compounds in frying oils.

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 85

    Deep-frying is a very popular cooking technique that is used worldwide. Deep-frying gives a crispy texture to food and creates savory flavors. Since it is one of the costlier kitchen commodities, frying oil is typically reused several times before being discarded. Using the oil for long periods of time is bad for the oil, causing it to degrade quickly, depending on the type of food being fried, te ...

  7. Technical and market feasibility of kelp meal as a nutritional supplement in low-moisture foods

    SBC: VitaminSea LLC            Topic: 812

    VitaminSea, LLC (VitaminSea) is developing a kelp-based additive, "SeaKelp+," for bread, optimized to bring the nutritional benefits of consuming seaweed to a large population of consumers. VitaminSea met both of the Phase I SBIR project's technical objectives. Objective #1 proved feasibility of adding kelp to bread, creating a more nutritious product that consumers would eat with a longer she ...

  8. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  9. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  10. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...
