  2. Lateral flow molecular assay for horse strangles

    SBC: BIOHELIX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to develop a simple, and sensitive molecular diagnostic assay for the detection of Streptococcus equi; the causative agent of strangles. Outbreaks of this disease at racetracks and training establishments caused major disruptions, and economic losses to owners, and trainers in the United States in recent years. The control of the spread of strangles relies on a combination of d ...

  3. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive means. There is a need to continually improve percentage intramuscular fat estimation accuracy and reduced bias, especially before integration of ...

  4. Robotic Mass Removal of Citrus Fruits

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Almost all citrus is harvested by hand. The resulting high cost in the U.S. is burden to growers and positions them at a disadvantage to overseas competitors with low labor costs. Automated methods are needed to ensure the long-term viability and prosperity of the U.S. citrus industry. Past attempts at automated harvesting have largely focused on either bulk removal without extensive sensing and c ...

  6. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Trypsin-Inhibitor-Null Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial soybeans require heat processing to deactivate anti-nutrition factors/enzymes. Schillinger Seed has developed a new soybean free of the key anti-nutrition Kunitz Tyrpsin Inhibitor (SKTI-Null). This new SKTI-Null) soybean presents the opportunity for ambient or cold processing of soybeans for use in food and feed. The elimination of heat processing eliminates the need of a signifcant amo ...

  7. Microbial Fuel Cells for Animal Manure Treatment

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The United States produces over 58 million tons of animal manure every year. These wastes pose a significant risk of environmental damage and human disease if not treated. However, most treatment methods are themselves either energy intensive or environmentally harmful. This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to optimize and 
commercialize a Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) ...
