  1. In Vitro Commercial Production Of

    SBC: AgResearch International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Protozoal predators severely limit the successful pond cultivation of the alga Haematococcus forthe commercial production of the aquaculture industry's natural colorant astaxanthin.Commercial producers frequently experience predatory attacks that eliminate 90% of theirHaematococcus biomass within 72 hours. The development of a cost effective, commercial-scale, in vitro, predatory-free production ...

  2. Semi-automated Analysis Of Aerial Citrus


    Semi-automated analysis of citrus grove data from remotely-sensed devices can reduce groundsurveying for appraisal, crop recording, yield analysis, and grove management. Although theygenerally start with the same aerial infrared imagery for their data collection, grove managers andindependent appraisers each have their own independent requirements for data analysis. By making theanalysis of this ...

  3. Evaluation Of Three Strains Of White Bass

    SBC: Aquafuture, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project seeks to identify superior strains and families of white bass for aquacultureby evaluating the progeny of three wild strains collected from a broad geographic range. Thecollections will be designed to evaluate the performance of genetically distinct strains. In orderto control for the effect of family differences, five families will be collected from each of thestrains and t ...

  4. Non-fouling Netting For Aquaculture

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A water-borne net coating is described that will prevent biofouling of netting materials used inaquacultural applications. The novel composition functions through the use of trace quantities ofnaturally occurring antifouling compounds. In addition, it contains no volatile organiccompounds (VOC). The proposed technology is especially attractive since it involves onlyenvironmentally benign compon ...

  5. Cytokines And Cytokine Assays For Swine

    SBC: Endogen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cytokines play a key role in the immunobiology of swine, and have the potential to improve themanagement of these animals. The pattern and tissue distribution of inflammatory cytokine expressionmay be indicative of the health or infectious status of the animal. Thus, the development of rapidcytokine tests is necessary to exploit this useful diagnostic information.Cytokines may also play another ...

  6. Use Of Mycotrol Residue Containing B. Bassiana

    SBC: Mycotech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mycotech produces Mycotrol, a commercial preparation of Beauveria bassiana (Bb). The residuecontains 109 spores of Bb per gram which could be economically used to reduce European corn borer(ECB) damage to corn crops. The objective is to develop an economic bio-control strategy for ECB.Three strategies for applying the Mycotrol residue to corn are proposed:¿ inoculating the seed and/or soil duri ...

  7. Low Cost Instrument for Automatic Determination of Cloud Cover

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a continuing need for reliable cloud observations to drive climatic UV-B prediction models. Traditionally, observations such as cloud cover are made by human observers, and thus often suffer from uncertainties due to the subjectivity of the observer. Cloud cover data is especially important in UV-B hazard prediction, as well as storm prediction. It is generally accepted that UV-B doses ...

  8. Portable Irradiance Calibration System

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The energy from the sun is the overall engine that drives our climate. Widespread concern over thedepletion of the stratospheric ozone layer, and the effect that this may have on UV-B irradiance levelsat the surface of the Earth, has highlighted the need for improved technology for precisely measuringsolar ultraviolet radiation. Instruments deployed in the field require frequent calibration to e ...

  9. Anaerobic Bioprocess For Liberating Gold And

    SBC: Yellowstone Environmental            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will advance a novel anaerobic bioprocess forliberating precious metals from metal-sulfide ores. As near-surface, oxidized ore reserves are depleted,gold producers are increasingly faced with the challenge of extracting gold and other metal values fromsulfidic ores that are refractory to conventional processing techniques. This often puts m ...

  10. Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometric Instrument for Multiple Species Measurements from a Remotely Piloted Vehicle

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometer (APCIMS) will be designed to optimally measure a variety of gaseous species involved in marine boundary layer chemistry and condensation processes. The design of the instrument will modify prior technology, developed at the Geophysics Directorate of the Air Force Phillips Laboratory, to be included in the payload of a remotely piloted, ...
