  3. Use of Lactic Acid Bacteria to Inhibit the Growth of Clostridium Botulinum in a Novel Mussel Pack

    SBC: Great Eastern Mussel Farms, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Mussel consumption in the U.S. has been limited by the sales of live mussels in wet packages with reduced shelf life. The FDA is reluctant to approve modified atmosphere packs for live mussels due to the risk of contamination by Clostridium botulinum in spoiled packages. This project tests the effectiveness of a strain of lactic acid bacteria added to a live, modified atmosphere mussel pack to pre ...

  4. Milk Pasteurization and Homogenization by Acoustic Cavitation at Small Rural Dairy Farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Milk prices have steadily increased over the past two decades; however, the price paid to farmers has remained around $1.00 per gallon over the last two decades. This has resulted in many small dairy farmers getting out of the business. The purpose of this project is to design a system that a small dairy farmer can use to process milk so that he can send it directly to the consumer and avoid the a ...

  5. Recombinant ISA Virus Vaccine

    SBC: Maine BioTek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) virus is an emerging pathogen of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). The virus is among the fish pathogens listed in the Aquatic Animal Health Code of the Office International des Epizooties (OIE). As such, ISA is a notifiable disease and compulsory eradication policies are enforced worldwide. Control measures, such as an efficacious vaccine, would reduce the viral ...

  6. Novel Reagent Development for Chronic Wasting Disease

    SBC: New England Rare Reagents            Topic: N/A

    Chronic wasting disease (CWD) in elk and deer, and scrapie in sheep are a family of degenerative, central nervous system diseases known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or prion diseases. They are often called spongiform because of the post mortem appearance of hole-like structures called vacuoles in the cortex and cerebellum of the brain. Chronic wasting disease is the result o ...
