  1. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I


    The long term goal of this project is to eliminate insect pests from the US food and feed supply with a sensor device, minimize exposure of humans and animals to residual chemicals or insecticides, and reduce financial losses due to grain damage. The lesser grain borer (LGB) is a devastating, long-lived pest of stored wheat, corn and other cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. Adul ...

  2. Enhanced Thermal Activity of Vegetable Oil Based Thermal Energy Storage Materials

    SBC: Renewable Alternatives, LLC            Topic: 88

    Phase change materials (PCMs) are a class of materials that use phase changes (e.g., melting) to absorb or release relatively large amounts of latent heat at relatively constant temperature. Applications include such things as clothing, building air conditioning, and medical-related shipping containers. However, the one area that still plagues the widespread use of PCMs is that they have a low the ...

  3. Monitor and Control the Formosan Subterranean Termite in Forest Resources Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I


    The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus, FST), an exotic, cryptic pest, causes about $1 billion damage in the US annually (Lax and Osbrink). Unlike native species, this aggressive termite attacks living trees, potentially threatening southern forests and the urban/forest interface. Potential forest damage is twofold: direct damage or death to trees and indirect disruption or disp ...

  4. Novel method for improving algae harvesting

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 87

    Algae are one of the most, if not the most, productive biomass crops known and have a photosynthetic efficiency almost twice that of the most productive terrestrial crop, sugarcane. However, algae are not without disadvantages relative to terrestrial crops, and do require their own novel technical solutions. Characteristically, microalgae are aquatic, very small (1 to 10 micron diameter), very dil ...

  5. Novel Dewatering Method for Cost Effective Harvesting of Microalgae Biomass

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 87

    A novel process is proposed which will allow continuous dewatering of algae growth culture in a device which is robust (no moving parts) and readily scalable through process parallelization. The process makes use of innovative passive (low energy input) flow control and does not need any chemical pre-treatment or external heat energy input. Microalgal cultivation affords the promise of renewable p ...

  6. Development of effective non-antibiotic dry-off agents for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    This project addresses priority areas of 1) Animal Productivity (in both conventional and alternative production systems), 2) Animal Health and Well-Being, and 3) Food Safety and Environmental Mitigation, as described in the NIFA Program Announcement for Phase I SBIR applications. 1) Productivity: Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, dis ...

  7. A Pelleted sericea lespedeza supplement for control of internal parasites on small farms

    SBC: SIMS BROTHERS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites are the greatest health and production challenge for sheep and goats in southeastern states and others during warm, humid conditions (including Northeastern, Midwestern and irrigated pastures in Western US). Haemonchus contortus, or barber pole, worm thrives in warm, humid climates and is a voracious blood feeder that can cause anemia and death to the animal if left untreated. I ...

  8. DNA Pro-Drug Technology in Localized Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: International Medicine and Biomedical Research            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advancement in wound management or tissue repair has been limited by the complexities, costs and limited efficacy of purified recombinant growth factors. Further, the combination of these recombinant proteins for moresophisticated approaches is complicated by the need for separate biologics. Optimally, we can move to a single biologic DNA pro-drug that provide ...

  9. Novel Glycosaminoglycan Ethers for Prevention of Metastasis

    SBC: GLYCOMIRA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heparin and its derivatives block P- and L-selectin mediated metastatic spread of cancer in animal models, and they potently inhibit the matrix degrading enzyme heparanase. Moreover, several large clinical trials performed with heparin or low molecular weight heparin have shown that survival is significantly improved by daily subcutaneous administration of hepa ...

  10. Unique Opioid Analgesics With No Addiction Liability or Dysphoria

    SBC: PHOENIX PHARMALABS, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I application requests funds to support the continued preclinical evaluation of a novel opioid analgesic, PPL-103, and the synthesis and initial preclinical evaluation of a series of new analogs thereof.PPL-103, a potent analgesic, has undergone early preclinical studies by Phoenix PharmaLabs, Inc. (PPL), the applicant organization, and NIDA. PPL ...
