  1. Extended Release Delivery of Volatile Essential Oils to Control Fungal Pests Post-Harvest

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    50% of produce goes uneaten. Loss in the produce supply chain costs $80B eachyear in the United States and represents a tremendous waste of key natural resources:land water and energy. A major cause of loss in the agricultural supply chain is spoilagebrought on by fungi and bacteria. Post-harvest pathogenic damage can be mitigated bya variety of strategies such as applying fungicides ozone chlorin ...

  6. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  8. Increasing the Specific Power of Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells for Cost-Effective, High-Efficiency, Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: OSD13EP3

    Photovoltaics (solar cells) are an attractive technology to provide renewable energy sources for forward operating bases, man-portable power sources, and tactical applications. Solar arrays can provide base power greatly reducing the need for logistical fuels, continuous battery recharging for warfighters on the move, and integrated power sources for remote, autonomous systems, e.g. UAVs. To be ef ...

  9. Determination of best candidates for novel orally delivered therapeutic candidates to combat spread of coccidiosis in poultry

    SBC: US BIOLOGIC            Topic: 83

    Avian coccidiosis is the major parasitic disease of poultry that can result in the deaths of millions of birds in a short time. Prophylactic medication and live parasite vaccines are employed as therapeutics. The development of parasite strains resistant to drug treatments, and immune-evasive mutations introduced in response to live parasite treatments will soon limit the effectiveness. The USDA A ...

  10. A new class of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) autogenous vaccine produced in a novel porcine macrophage cell line

    SBC: APTIMMUNE BIOLOGICS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Swine morbidity and mortality caused by porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus is a threat to the U.S. pork industry causing losses of $664 million last year that may exceed $700 million in 2014. Vaccines against PRRS virus have failed to stem the occurrence of PRRS in U.S. herds. Here we propose to ascertain the technical feasibility of developing an effective autogenous (kill ...
