  1. Determination of the Sex of Juvenile Sturgeon Using a Molecular Based Diagnostic.

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 87

    Sturgeons have very high potential to become an important and profitable aquaculture species in the US, as males are grownfor meat and brood stock and female sturgeon are primarily raised for their eggs (caviar). In fact, sturgeon caviar is the highestvaluedaquaculture product worldwide, selling for $104 - $250 per 50 grams (depending on the quality). One 60 kg adult femalecan produce approximatel ...

  2. Free-living Energy Balance Assessment and Management in Close to Real Time

    SBC: MEI Research, Ltd            Topic: N/A

    So many Americans are overweight that the condition has been declared a serious public health problem and is burdening our health care systems. Obesity increases the risk of diabetes, heart attack, stroke, cancer, arthritis, sleep apnea and other diseases. Researchers are making progress to find and control the behavioral and biochemical factors that drive weight gain and their progress points to ...

  4. Improved Hard Process; Breakthrough Kiln Process for Manufacturing Phosphoric Acid

    SBC: JDC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Since submission of this Phase II grant application, JDC has selected a site at the former Noralyn Mine beneficiation plant in Bartow, Florida for its research institute and follow-on demonstration plant. We are presently completing the business arrangements to lease and operate at this site. JDC will then move its office and laboratory to the Noralyn site where it plans to carry out significant p ...

  5. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will use an ultrasonic beam traveling logitudinally along the rail rather than the complex normal and angle-beams transducer assemblies in current systems. Detectio of transverse defects becomes a simple pulse-echo application and resolves many inherent speed, inspectin reliability and robustness problems in current rail inspection systems. The simplified procedure will increase the r ...

  6. Magneto-Thermal MRAM

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: BMDO02004

    Magneto-Thermal MRAM uses both heat and magnetic field (current)to overcome thermal instabilities of very small memory cells. Self-generated heat in the cell raises the temperature of magnetic material in the cell above the exchange ordering temperature of the magnetic material (either ferromagnetic or anti-ferromagnetic). Magneto-Thermal MRAM is compatible with advances in photolithography down t ...

  7. Species Authentication of Catfish Using Protein and DNA Based Diagnostics

    SBC: APL Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A.Imported fish of lesser value and quality are being substituted in the U.S. market for domestic channel catfish. Visually, the imported fillets can not be distinguished from U.S. channel catfish. B.Traditional protein banding techniques (isoelectric focusing) for species identification are not reliable on value-added or processed fish. C.Traditional authentication methods are time consuming and ...

  8. Ultrafast continuous biodiesel production from multiple feedstocks using fixed bed reactors and metal oxide catalysts (The Mcgyan? process)

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Biodiesel is a renewable substitute and additive for petroleum diesel and its use can improve air quality, combat climate change and increase national energy security. The current biodiesel production methods are not well suited for efficient, large-scale continuous production and improved technology is needed. Recent Phase I research findings from SarTec Corporation demonstrate that biodiesel can ...
