  2. LIGASE CHAIN REACTION AMPLIFICATION FOR DETECTION OF SALMONELLA IN FOODS

    SBC: Biotechnica Diagnostics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LIGASE CHAIN REACTION (LCR) ENABLES AS FEW AS 10 DNA TARGETS TO BE AMPLIFIED TO LEVELS DETECTABLE USING MANY CONVENTIONAL DETECTION METHODS. THE AMPLIFICATION TECHNOLOGY CAN BE APPLIED TO THE DETECTION OF SALMONELLA IN FOOD SAMPLES WITH BENEFITS REALIZED IN THE REDUCTION OF PRE-ENRICHMENT AND SELECTIVE ENRICHMENT GROWTH TIMES AND IMPROVEMENT IN ASSAY SENSITIVITY, SURPASSING ALL CURRENT DETECTI ...

  4. MAINTAINING GENETICALLY-DETERMINED ROOT SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS USEFUL FOR URBAN TREES

    SBC: Knight Hollow Nursery Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF REPAIRING AND REPLACING PUBLIC PROPERTY DAMAGED BY SHALLOW TREE ROOTS TOTALS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY. THE UNEVEN GRADE OF THESE SIDEWALKS ALSO PRESENTS A LIABILITY FOR MUNICIPALITIES. THE PROBLEM IS LIKELY TO BE COMPOUNDED BY THE PROPOSED PLANTING OF AN ADDITIONAL 60 MILLION URBAN TREES. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED A POPULATION OF SEEDLING TREES WITH KNOWN ROOT GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS, SPAN ...

  5. CHARATERIZATION OF AVAII POLYMORPHISIM IN PROLACTIN GENE

    SBC: Tri-state Breeders Cooperative            Topic: N/A

    A GENETIC MARKER ASSOCIATED WITH YIELD TRAITS IN AN ELITE FAMILY OF DAIRY CATTLE HAS BEEN FOUND. THE MARKER HAS PROVEN TO BE USEFUL IN DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN SONS IN SPITE OF THE NEARLY IDENTICAL PEDIGREE MERIT. CHARACTERIZATION OFTHE AVAII POLYMORPHISM DETECTED WITH CDNA PROBES FOR PROLACTIN WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE STRUCTURAL VARIATION IS IN THE PROLACTIN GENE.

  6. ULTRAVIOLET MEASURING INSTRUMENTATION WITH THERMAL STABILIZATION

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

    HIGH LEVELS OF ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION ARE KNOWN TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR BIOLOGICALLY HARMFUL EFFECTS IN PLANTS AND ANIMALS. CONCERN ABOUT INTENSITY OF THE ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION AT THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH HAS GREATLY INCREASED SINCE THE DISCOVERY OF THE "OZONE HOLE" OVER ANTARCTICA IN 1985. THE TASK OF LONG TERM MONITORING OF UV LEVELS IS CURRENTLY MADE DIFFICULT BY INSTRUMENTATION NOT ADEQUATE TO TH ...

  8. OZONE DEPLETION POTENTIAL DETERMINATION OF SHIPBOARD FIRE EXTINGUISHING AGENTS

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

    HALON 1301 (CF3BR) IS CURRENTLY IN WIDE SPREAD USE ON NAVAL VESSELSAS AN EFFECTIVE AND NON-TOXIC ACTIVE AGENT IN FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS. UNFORTUNATELY, FUTURE MANUFACTURE AND USE OF CF3BR MAY BE SEVERELY RESTRICTED DUE TO ITS ROLE AS A POTENT AGENT IN STRATOSPHERIC OZONE DEPLETION CHEMISTRY. ALTERNATIVE FIRE SUPPRESSION CHEMICALS NEED TOBE IDENTIFIED AND ASSESSED TO REPLACE HALON 1301 IN NAVAL S ...

  10. ANTI-REFLECTION COATINGS FOR DIAMOND FILMS

    SBC: Applied Science And Technology            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-REFLECTION (AR) COATING FOR DIAMOND FILMS OPTIMIZED TO ENHANCE THE TRANSMISSION IN THE 8 TO 12 MICRON REGION OF THE SPECTRUM. THE METAL-OXIDE MATERIALS TO BE EVALUATED HAVE GOOD OPTICAL TRANSMISSION IN THIS SPECTRAL REGION AND REFRACTIVE INDICES NEAR THE OPTIMUM VALUE OF 1.55 FOR A DIAMOND AR COATING. SINCE A SECONDARY PURPOSE OF THE COATING IS TO PROTECT THE DIAMOND ...
