  1. The Full Integration of a Portable Bacterial Concentrator with a Pathogen Detector Device

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: 90

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to integrate an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator with a handheld pathogen detection system to enable ultra-low cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including in Yemen, where in the first 5 months of 2020 has had 110,000 suspected cases. Current methods used to detect the chole ...

  2. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  3. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  4. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known.  Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use.&nbs ...

  5. RBAC-based Workflow

    SBC: Virtual Globe, Inc. (Rockwise)            Topic: N/A

    Role-based workflow (RBW) is a NIST invention that used RBAC technology to implement workflow, with the goal of making workflow easier to maintain and more secure. At this time, Virtual Global has completed a Phase I SBIR effort, in which computer software was created to automate the invention in the form of web services. The Phase I effort was successful in proving the feasibility of the inventio ...

  6. Refining Culture Technology for Growing Spiny Lobsters, Panulirus argus, from Pueruli to Market in Puerto Rico

    SBC: Snapperfarm, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, aquaculture on a global scale is a small fraction of the total annual wild harvest. The ability to advance the culture of spiny lobsters will reduce the stress on the natural stock while providing a highly desired product. The culture cycle is dependent on the collection of lobster pueruli from the wild, due to the difficulty in rearing the larvae through the year ...

  7. Development of Microalgal-Based Vaccines for Fish

    SBC: PHYCOTRANSGENICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phycotransgenics goal is to develop a vaccine delivery system using microalgae to reduce diseaseassociated costs for aquaculture. To accomplish this, we transformed Chlamydomonas, a single-cell algal species, with an antigen gene. Through our Phase 1 Program, we demonstrated that: 1) an antigen expressed in our algae can elicit an immune response in fish, and; 2) using our microalgal delivery syst ...

  8. Rapid Scanning Near-Infrared/Infrared Spectrometer

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project involves a feasibility study for a rapid scanning near-infrared/infrared spectrometer for transient, simultaneous measurements of CO2 and H20 concentrations, soot volume fractions and temperatures. Such measurements can lead to improved understanding of the structure of turbulent and laminar flames. A commercial instrument that can reliably provide simultaneous gas concentrtaion, so ...
