  1. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  2. An Ultra-Sensitive Detector for On-Line Measurement of Volatile Molecules Produced by Diseased Potato Tubers

    SBC: Remote Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It has been well established that disease in stored potatoes and many other vegetables and fruits generate a variety of volatile compounds that are released into the storage space Furthermore, specific types of disease produce volatile compounds that generate unique fingerprints on ultra-sensitive spectrographic molecular detection devices. The background atmosphere of commercial storage facilitie ...

  3. AUTOMATIC EGG INJECTION MACHINE

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. POULTRY INDUSTRY ADMINISTERS ABOUT 21 BILLION DOSE UNITS OF VACCINES YEARLY. THESE VACCINATIONS ARE GIVEN TO TO DAY-OLD BIRDS FOR SEVERAL VIRAL AND BACTERIAL DISEASES, AND SUBSEQUENT VACCINATIONS TO GROWING AND ADULT CHICKENS ANAND TURKEYS. ADDITIONALLY, 170 MILLION TURKEY EMBRYOS R RECEIVE ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT. THE WORLDWIDE POULTRY DRUG VACCINE MARKET REPRESENTS OVER $500 MILLION PR YEA ...

  4. Automating Production of a Modified Blow-Fill-Seal Applicator Unit-Dose Vial

    SBC: Unicep Packaging, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bonner and Boundary Counties, Idaho, are rural areas in transition. The people in these areas currently rely on increasingly fewer timber and forestry jobs as well as low-paying, seasonal tourist industry positions. The purpose of this project is to foster critically needed economic development in a chronically depressed rural region by leveraging and expanding technology-based entrepreneurial act ...

  5. Dermal Medical Countermeasures for Chemical Weapons Exposure

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD161003

    The skin is the first line of defense against chemical warfare agents including nerve agents and toxic industrial chemicals, providing a possible barrier or delay to systemic distribution. Some chemicals also can act directly on the skin including the vesicants sulfur mustard and lewisite. Early and rapid skin decontamination is extremely important following exposure to CWAs and TICs because it de ...

  6. Developing Medicinally Used Echinacea Cultivars by Intra- and Interspecific Hybridization- Phase II

    SBC: Gaia Herbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cultivation of Echinacea has gained worldwide interest in recent years due to its non-specific immunomodulatory activity in humans. However, Echinacea species have not been genetically improved for medicinal use. This project is to develop genetically improved Echinacea cultivars for medicinal use. The new cultivars will produce higher yield of biomass and bioactive phytochemicals than the types c ...

  7. Efficacy of Manganese Peroxidase Produced from Maize in Pulp Bleaching

    SBC: Applied Biotechnology Institute, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The pulp and paper industry require the removal or bleaching of lignin as an important manufacturing step for many of their products. Chemical bleaching is the preferred current process for whitening because of its relatively low cost. The bleaching process uses large amounts of chlorinated and caustic chemicals to brighten raw pulp which is brown in color due to the presence of residual lignin. D ...

  8. Energy-Scavenging Animal Telemetry Device

    SBC: TENXSYS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current animal telemetry devices are large and heavy due to their reliance on batteris to power the electronics and radios. Because of this, many species can't be effectively studied since they can not support the device weight. The smaller size will allow animal telemetry devices to be developed for species that have not had effective monitoring devices previously. The longer duration devices wil ...

  9. Enhancement of Early Development in Turkeys by in Ovo Feeding

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    Approximately 5% of hatchlings do not survive the critical post-hatch period because of limited body reserves. Many survivors exhibit stunted growth, leg problems, inefficient feed utilization, reduced disease resistance, or poor meat yield. This poult quality problem has been calculated to be worth approximately $71 million and $142 million annually to the US and global turkey industry respective ...

  10. Evaluating Oosporein and Its Analogs from the Mycoparasite Aphanocladium album for Managing Rust Diseases

    SBC: PhytoMyco Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Low molecular weight metabolites produced by the rust mycoparasite, Aphanocladium album, can convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores. The teliospore-inducing factor (TIF) has been isolated, identified and demonstrated in proof-of concept experiments to convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores of the oat rust fungus, Puccinia coronata. During Phase II, we ...
