  1. Antimicrobial Combinations that Help Protect Against Salmonella spp.&L. monocytogenes in Organic&Natural Poultry Products

    SBC: SEA STAR INTERNATIONAL, LLC            Topic: 812

    This is a critical crossroads for the poultry industry with a majority of consumers demanding minimal or chemical free foods and the ever present threat of foodborne illness from Salmonella and Listeria associated with raw and ready-to-eat (RTE) poultry products. As a potential solution, we have demonstrated the effectiveness of novel, all natural antimicrobials. This proposed Phase II research wi ...

  2. Formulating New Cellulases for Diverse Markets: Defining QA Parameters

    SBC: INFINITE ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 88

    Biomass to biofuels can provide solutions for energy independence, lower cost of fuels and global climate change mitigation. However, to achieve the goal of converting biomass into biofuels, the biomass must be broken down into its component sugars so they can be fermented into fuels. Cellulases are proteins (enzymes) that can breakdown biomass into sugars. Currently these enzymes are not abundant ...

  3. Whole-brain fluorescence and brightfield imaging at single-cell level

    SBC: DMetrix, Inc            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop an open and flexible imaging platform capable of rapid, 0.5- 5 m pixel resolution image capture of large-area histology sections (up to 125 mm by 175 mm), in brightfield and by epi-fluorescence optical sectioning. The project involves state-of-the- art instrumentation development coupled with application programming inter ...

  4. Connective Tissue Motion Measure 2

    SBC: STROMATEC, INC            Topic: NCCAM

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Connective tissue dysfunction is emerging as a potentially important, and so far mostly overlooked, factor in the pathophysiology of chronic low back pain (LBP). We have developed and tested a novel instrument (StromaGlide) and test (Connective Tissue Motion Measure - CTMM) -quantifying the functional behavior of perimuscular connective tissues. The results of ...

  6. PlayTalk Communication Software for Children with Complex Communication Needs

    SBC: INVOTEK, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent need for speech generating devices (SGDs) designed for young children with complex communication needs. Available SGDs are difficult for children to use and time consuming for adults to program. Without appropriate SGDs, children miss valuable opportunities to communicate and develop language skills during their early years, when they are pr ...

  7. System for multidimensional analysis of growth and migration of neurons and neuro

    SBC: MICROBRIGHTFIELD, INC.            Topic: NIMH

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project aims at developing the Orion microscope system, a highly innovative combined software/hardware product, which will facilitate automated investigations of dynamics of migration of neuronal precursors and neurite outgrowth in vitro using time-lapse video-microscopy (TLVM). To achieve this goal, the Orion microscope system will combine novel software ...

    SBC: Ocean Nano Tech LLC            Topic: NCI

    Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women with more than one million new cases and 370,000 deaths worldwide yearly. Chemotherapy drugs, such as Doxorubicin, have been used in both pre- and post-operative adjuvant therapy or as the main therapeutic option for breast cancer patients with metastatic disease. Although recent advances in th ...

    SBIR Phase II 2012 Department of Health and Human Services

    SBC: Ocean Nano Tech LLC            Topic: NCI

    The goal of this project is to develop multiple-biomarker imaging for detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) associated human cancer. Quantum dots (QDs) with multiple emission colors were chosen as optical probes to label the biomarkers on tissue. Attribute to the unique optical properties of QDs, they can be used as powerful cancer diagnostic tools providing the molecular profiles of cancer ...

  10. Ionomer-membrane Water Processor System Design and EDU Demonstration

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    a. Paragon Space Development Corporation¿ (Paragon) proposes to continue our investigation into the use of microporous-ionomer membrane technology to improve the robustness and effectiveness and simplify water recovery processes for space applications. Improved robustness and effectiveness will be evident through (1) reduced loading onthe downstream post processor due to the ionomer¿s unique pr ...
