  1. Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering For Field

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The use of sub-therapeutic concentrations of anti-microbial agents in animal feed has contributed to theproductivity of the U.S. meat and dairy industries by preventing infectious diseases, by decreasing theamount of feed required and by increasing the rate of animal weight gain. However, failure to observerecommended practices of drug withdrawal can result in concentrations of antibiotic residue ...

  2. Development Of A Ready-to-assemble

    SBC: Blue Ridge Timberwrights            Topic: N/A

    The ready-to-assemble (RTA) construction system is a new method for assembling wood structuresbuilt from the following engineered wood products: parallel strand lumber (PSL), laminated strandlumber (LSL), and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The RTA system is designed for rapid assemblyby small crews of unskilled labor using common hand tools. The design of the RTA systemincorporates engineered w ...

  3. A Multiple Antigen Direct Elisa For Diagnosing

    SBC: Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) is a retrovirus that causes a chronic infection in horses. In theabsence of a vaccine, the control of this disease depends on the diagnosis and elimination of infectedhorses. Currently approved diagnostic procedures utilize agar gel diffusion (AGID), or enzyme-linkedimmunosorbant (ELISA) methodologies to detect antibodies against the virus in horse sera as e ...

  4. CLEAN AND EFFICIENT UTILIZATION FROM AGRICULTURAL RESIDUES

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I research proved the feasibility of EnerTech's Slurry Carbonization technology for economically producing clean and marketable fuels from high-moisture agricultural residues and wastes, especially animal manures. The Slury Carbonization technology effectively transformed low-grade animal residues, through a moderate temperature and pressure carbonization process, into a uniform and especial ...

  5. A Rapid Collection And Detection Method For

    SBC: Immunological Associates Of Denver            Topic: N/A

    Studies have found Cryptosporidium parvum (C. parvum) oocysts in 65-97% of surface water tested inthe United States. The current Surface Water Treatment Rule does not include analysis for C. parvum.However, the increased incidence of outbreaks involving Cryptosporidiosis have instigated aninvestigation into whether or not testing should be included in the Enhanced Surface Water TreatmentRule. Th ...

  6. Real Time Information System to Estimate Processed Grain Value Over the U.S.

    SBC: Quetzal Computational Associat            Topic: N/A

    The influence of environmental conditions on specific grain quality characteristics such as oil, starch, and protein contents in major grain crops has been known for the last several decades. Within the past several years incentive to predict the value of grains prior to harvest has increased due to significant price differences paid for grains possessing specific quality characteristics. There ...

  7. Removal of Selenium from Agricultural Drainage Waters Using Emulsion Liquid

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

    Agricultural drainage waters emanating from irrigation projects in seleniferous lands in the western United States are a major source of selenium contaminated waters. Because of selenium's known toxicity and teratogenicity to waterbirds, the discharge limits adopted by the California State Water Resources Control Board are very low (0.005 mg/L). Therefore, in order to prevent selenium poisoning, ...

  9. HIGH-SPEED LASER-BASED FRUIT AND VEGETABLE MATURITY MEASURING SYSTEM

    SBC: Astleford Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AT THE PRESENT TIME, ALL MATURITY SORTING OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, SUCH AS APPLES, PEACHES ANDTOMATOES, IS ACCOMPLISHED EITHER BY HAND, BY COLOR OR BY THE USE OF THE MAGNESS-TAYLOR . EACH OF THESE TECHNIQUES HAVE MAJOR DISADVANTAGES IN THE HIGH-SPEED MATURITY GRADING OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. THE ANNUAL VALUE OF THE THREE NAMED FOOD CROPS ALONE IS IN EXCESS OF ONE BILLION DOLLARS, AND THE OPPORTU ...
