  1. Production of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Fungal inocula are an important component of a soil bioaugmentation technology that relies on the pollutant-degrading abilities of white-rot wood decay (Bioremedy) fungi. Current inoculum production techniques are expensive and cumbersome. Preliminary work on a less expensive, technically superior inoculum formulation based on a pelleted lignocellulosic-based substrate covered with an active mycel ...

  2. Aerated Submerged BioFilm (ASBF) for Wastewater Treatment Lagoon Enhancement

    SBC: Tero Consulting            Topic: N/A

    Wastewater treatment lagoons are the most widespread form of treatment in the United States for animal operations and rural domestic sewage. Treatment lagoons can be effective at removing BOD. They are not effective at reducing ammonia levels. Animal operations with recycled water from lagoons can experience high levels of ammonia in the water. This can result in severe odor problems and potential ...

  4. NON-INVASIVE BLOOD PHENYLALANINE MONITOR

    SBC: ACIONT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetic deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Without PAH, the patient with PKU cannot metabolize phenylalanine (PHE) to tyrosine. The resulting accumulation of PHE and the accumulation of phenylpyruvate by a secondary metabolic pathway in the patient's blood produce neuropathies including severe mental retardation, behavior ...

  5. IMPROVED NON-INVASIVE BLOOD GLUCOSE MONITORING DEVICE

    SBC: ACIONT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The accurate measurement of blood glucose concentration is important in the management of diabetes. Current methods of glucose monitoring involve piercing the skin and collecting blood samples for analysis up to four times daily or more. Even the non-invasive Glucowatch tm glucose monitoring system requires twice daily blood collection for calibration. This original, innovative invention will decr ...

  6. BLUE LED LIGHT PANEL FOR TREATMENT OF WINTER DEPRESSION

    SBC: APOLLO LIGHT SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multiple studies have established that bright light therapy is effective in alleviating symptoms of winter depression (seasonal affective disorder, or SAD). Light units used for treating SAD in the past have generally emitted polychromatic white light of highly variable spectral properties. Although several studies have attempted to test the effectiveness of ...

  7. GLUTAMINE:FRUCTOSE-6-PHOSPHATE AMIDOTRANSFERASE FORNIDDM

    SBC: DELTAGEN PROTEOMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We have developed a transdominant genetic methodology for isolating peptide, protein or RNA factors (collectively called peturbagens) that modulate biochemical targets within a cell to alter its phenotype. Because it is genetic approach, it can be applied in both the classical forward mode (from phenotype to genotype) to reverse mode (from gene to function). The main goal of the proposed Phase I r ...

  8. SNP DETECTION WITH UNLABELED, UNAMPLIFIED TARGET DNA

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the proposed project is to develop an analytical tool for large-scale detection of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in unlabeled, unamplified genomic or pooled nucleic acid samples. A dual hybridization utilizing a labeled, peptide nucleic acid (PNA, a nucleic acid analog) probe and an immobilized DNA probe will be performed. This innovative a ...

  9. DIAGNOSTIC TEST FOR PERIODONTAL BONE LOSS

    SBC: BIOMIMETIC PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. A major limitation in the clinical management of patients susceptible to periodontal disease is the inability to detect active alveolar bone loss. Currently, the clinician diagnoses periodontitis based upon historical measures such as radiographs and probing pocket depths. The major shortcoming of usin ...

  10. OPEN FILE FORMAT AND PUBLIC DOMAIN TOOLS FOR NEURAL DATA

    SBC: Bionic            Topic: N/A

    There are many data acquisition systems available for neuroscientists interested in multi-channel neurophysiology but all use proprietary, independently-developed file formats for the acquired data. This creates several problems including difficulties in sharing data between laboratories and poor interoperability between equipment, data processing tools and spike classification software from diffe ...
