  1. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

      For divers, out of air situations present a particular hazard. They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface. A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required. In order for the device to be adopted, it must no t only be effective but it must offer ease of use and a strea ...

  2. Development of a Nest Attractant for the Blue Orchard Bee

    SBC: AGPOLLEN, LLC            Topic: 82

    Modern agriculture has relied almost exclusively on the honey bee for managed pollination services. Honey beekeepers currently face numerous problems including Varroa mites, American foulbrood, Africanized bees and most recently colony collapse disorder. These problems have led to a shorter supply of colonies and consequently higher rental prices in the United States. It is sensible to have more t ...

  3. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...

  4. PRESERVATION OF BIOPROCESS ALGAE FOR CERTIFIED SEEDSTOCK

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass for the aquaculture and cleantech industry is absence of quality bulk live algae product. Live algae conc ...

  5. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: LYNN B WILSON            Topic: 86

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...

  6. Growth Mindset Learning Platform for Educators and Students: Supporting Academic Motivation and Achievement through an Integrated Online Platform

    SBC: Mindset Works, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although research shows that a "growth mindset" – the belief that intelligence can be developed through effort and learning how to learn – increases student motivation and academic achievement, few classroom or school-wide interventions are available in this area. This project team will develop the Growth Mindset Learning Platform (GMLP) to support students and educators ...

  7. Perceptual and Adaptive Learning Technologies: Developing Products to Improve Algebra Learning

    SBC: Insight Learning Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Two problems limit student learning in Algebra in most instructional settings. The first problem involves a lack of methods to advance students’ ability to grasp patterns, process them fluently, and detect them in variable contexts and the second involves a lack of instructional formats that adapt to the individual learner. Recently developed perceptual learning and adaptive learning technol ...

  8. Automated Systems for Detection and Molecular Characterization of Circulating Tum

    SBC: ADVANCED CELL DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The detection and enumeration of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) has the potential to become a very powerful tool in cancer diagnosis and treatment. However, current technologies for CTC detection are not yet established in routine clinical practice. One reason is that CTCs are present in blood at an extremely low concentration of one in 10 million white blood c ...

  9. Targeted tumoricidal bacteria

    SBC: ANTICANCER, INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have developed an effective bacterial cancer therapy strategy by targeting viable tumor tissue by using Salmonella typhimurium auxotrophs that we have generated which grow in viable as well as necrotic areas of tumors. However, the auxotrophy severely restricts growth of these bacteria in normal tissue enabling them to be used for cancer treatment. The S. ty ...

  10. Liquid Array Protein Assay Platform

    SBC: ARRAYOMICS, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of this project is to develop and optimize our novel particle-based microarray platform, ArrayableESP, for application to high multiplex (50- to 2000-plex) proteomic analysis of human serum samples. ESPs are optically-encoded microfabricated particles that can be manipulated using magnetic force. They are manufactured on commercially available photolith ...
