  1. Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Fresh Markets in High Density Groves

    SBC: GEO-SPIDER, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Phase I of this project will seek to establish feasibility of the selective harvesting system for high density grove through scaled prototype testing. Our focus will be on developing a new end effector concept with an integrated hyper-redundant forearm, along with an integrated fruit detection sensory suite. This system will be integrated and tested using our most advanced image processing and vis ...

  2. Rapid Detection of Mycotoxins

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 85

    The risk of contamination of grains and other field crops by mycotoxins, a toxic byproduct of mold infestations affecting as much as one-quarter of global food and feed crop output, is a very important food safety concern. The economic effects attributed to mycotoxin infection are widely felt in all sectors of the production and consumption of grain products. Grain producers are affected by limite ...

  3. Mechanical Scrubber for Aquaculture Netting

    SBC: LINDGREN-PITMAN, INC.            Topic: 87

    Net cleaning and maintenance represent a significant cost in the aquaculture industry. Clean nets are essential in maintaining a healthy stock, and achieving optimal yield. Fouled nets also generate drag, and the dirtier the net, the higher the loading on moored structures in the farm, which could lead to failures. However, few options exist that are truly efficient in terms of their consumption o ...

  5. Definitive Molecular Markers for Speciation of Fresh and Canned Tuna: Genus Thunnus

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 85

    Ranked as one of the world's most valuable commercial seafood, tuna species belonging to the Thunnus genus are considered the most important and endangered fish in worldwide trade. Extensive research to develop methods to distinguish Thunnus at the species level has significantly contributed to the enormous databanks of genetic information on these fish. However to date, no single approach ha ...

  6. Increase production of canna germplasm using multiplex PCR screening and antiviral treatments for rhizome sanitization

    SBC: HORN CANNA FARM, INC.            Topic: 82

    Horn Farms Inc needs to routinely produce sufficient annual seed stocks to support commercial production of key canna varieties. Thus the greenhouse diagnostic and sanitization program is necessary to meet production goals. Accurate visual disease assessment is carried out at 2 and 4 weeks of growth (instead of 10 and 16 weeks). Genus specific PCR primers were developed which detect all viruses in ...

  7. Veterinary probiotic preparations to protect against plant toxins

    SBC: Hexpoint Technologies LLC            Topic: 83

    Ingested plant and fungal toxin poisonings account for as much $1 billion per year in livestock losses for US farmers and ranchers. Additional indirect losses from inability to use infested pasture lands and contaminated feed and fodder expand problems for agriculture. An additional economic concern stems from threats to export markets. Feed and fodder exporting is a multi-billion dollar enterpris ...

  8. Low-Cost Sampling Approaches for Measuring Induced VOC???s of Citrus

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 813

    There are several diseases that are attacking citrus crops world-wide. The citrus industry desperately needs early detection of these infections. However, there are no low-cost, robust diagnostic tests currently available for early identification of citrus diseases under field conditions. This proposal directly responds to the need to reduce the impact of plant diseases and insect pests on citrus ...

  9. Fluorescent Aptamer Test Strips for Food Safety Testing

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    The lateral flow (LF) or immunochromatographic (IC) test strip is a staple test format in the food safety testing arsenal. However, the sensitivity of LF assays is limited partly due to antibody affinity and partly due to the visual detection limit of colloidal gold or colored latex particles. Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) has developed hundreds of high affinity candidate DNA aptam ...

  10. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...
