  1. The Inflammatory Cell Differential Counter, A New Tool to Combat Mastitis On-Site

    SBC: Advanced Animal Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Mastitis, an infection of the milk-producing glands of dairy cows, is a $5 billion problem worldwide. The current, on-site method used to diagnose mastitis, and to monitor its incidence, is to count the total number of "body cells" (white cells and other body cells) present in the milk. There has been little change to this method over the last ten years. Academic studies, conducted with complex in ...

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

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    The first few days after hatch is a critical period for the development and survival of commercial turkey poults. During this period poults make the metabolic and physiological transition from egg nutriture to exogenous feed. Nutritional limitations result from the limited nutrient content of the egg and the limited ability of the hatchling to digest nutrients from an external carbohydrate and pro ...

  4. Developing Medicinally Used Echinacea Cultivars by Intra- and Inter-Species Hybridization

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

    Cultivation of Echinacea has gained worldwide interest in recent years due to its non-specific immunomodulotary activity in humans. It was the top-selling medicinal herb in 2001 and has remained among the top five best-selling herbs for over five years. However, the Echinacea species has not been genetically improved for medicinal use. Current cultivated types of Echinacea were originated from poo ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Novel Pesticide Delivery System for Insects: Next Generation Protein Insecticide

    SBC: Insect Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Insects pose several challenges to mankind. They consume the food crops that we grow, they transmit diseases to plants, man and animals, and cause infrastructure damage and destruction. Current methods to control insects are largely based on the use of toxic chemicals, principally neurotoxins, which also pose health risks to the users, consumers, and other nontarget organisms. There are numerous e ...

  7. Recycling of Surface Contaminated Wood via Waste Stream Remediation

    SBC: Newman Machine Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The United States generates about 136 million tons of construction and demolition (C&D) waste annually. Wood makes up 35.1 million tons (25 percent) of this total and only about half of this wood is recycled. Currently, all painted, stained or lacquered wood debris is landfilled due to concerns about hazardous materials contained in these coatings. Painted material makes up for the largest percent ...
