  1. Enhanced Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a growth hormone for fruits and vegetables that is generated by the plants themselves; that is, it acts as a self-ripening agent. Hence, the removal of ethylene gas can play a central role in maintaining the freshness of these products. Whereas the temperature and the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide gases are also important system variables that demand a significant economic invest ...

  2. Enhanced Performance of Agriculture Based Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A. Water must be removed from biodegradable hydraulic fluids as they react with water and degrade insitu. B. Biodegradable hydraulic fluids for farm equipment provide a significant improvement over traditional petroleum based fluids due to decreased pollution. Increase the use and value of biodegradable hydraulic fluids by development of a membrane-based dewatering system.

  3. Agricultural Emissions Reduction Using Bio-Fuels with Membrane Supplied Nitrogen

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of biodiesel offers significant advantages with regards to the reduction of total harmful engine emissions with the exception of NOx. Biodiesel is a renewable resource and soybean oil is known to be economically viable as a biodiesel fuel. Recent studies from the Environmental Protection Agency have shown that soybean oil alone or blended with #2 diesel fuel results in a significant decrea ...

  4. High-throughput Prediction of Compound Tissue Distribution

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The aim of the proposed research is to develop tools for the prediction of the distribution of drug compounds in the human body. There is currently no experimental high throughput screening (HTS) method for determining compound tissue distribution. A drug compound's propensity to be taken up by different tissues and organs affects whether it will reach its acti ...

  5. Development Of A Pulsed Light Emitting Diode Dental Photocuring System

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): LED based curing lights are beginning to replace conventional halogen lamps as the first choice for dental photo-curing applications. The target of this proposal is to develop a new generation LED dental curing light. It will be the first curing light that is optimized according to the kinetic response of the dental composite, which plays a key role in determin ...

  6. Improved Dehydration Process for Pharmaceutical Synthesis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most pharmaceutical synthesis involve condensation or dehydration reactions at some point in the process that generates water as a by-product. This water must be removed since (1) water is often not a desirable component of the finished product, (2) water limits conversion to final product, and (3) water generated slows the reaction rate. Many Pharmaceuticals h ...

  7. High Flux Blood Oxygenators

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Historically blood oxygenator technology either for short-term by-pass surgery or recently developed long-term strategies has been mass transfer limited by liquid side mass transfer fluid dynamics. Recent active mixing designs have led to systems which remove liquid side fluid limitations and have oxygen and carbon dioxide transport limited by membrane transpo ...

  8. Rapid Susceptibility Testing of MDR M. tuberculosis- Phase II

    SBC: MIDI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this project is the development of a system based on high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for rapid and accurate antibiotic susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Susceptible and resistant strains of MTB, exposed to anti-MTB antibiotics, exhibit pronounced differences in mycolic acid content. Initial rese ...

  9. Controlled Surface Porosity Particles for Ultra-fast Life Science Separations

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop unique column packings for high-performance liquid chromatography. These new materials will allow the very fast separation and characterization of both small molecules of biological and pharmaceutical interest and very large biomolecular components that are not well handled by current technology. Previous studies by the PI ...
