  1. A NEW RAPID TEST FOR SALMONELLA DETECTION USING LIPOSOME-ENTRAPPED MOLECULES

    SBC: Ohmicron Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE TESTING FOR SALMONELLA CURRENTLY INVOLVES METHODOLOGY THAT REQUIRES 3-8 DAYS TO COMPLETE AND A FAIRLY SOPHISTICAT ED SKILL LEVEL TO PERFORM. THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO D DEVELOP BOTH MANUAL AND BIOSENSOR-BASED HOMOGENEOUS ASSAYS THAT WILL REDUCE THE DETECTION TIME OF SALMONELLA TO WITHIN 24 HOURS AND BE TECHNICALLY SIMPLER TO PERFORM. THE NOVEL ASPECT IS THE USE OF A LIMPSOME-ENCAPSULATED ENZ ...

  2. DEVELOPING A GREENHOUSE GROWING SYSTEM FOR SINGLE CLUSTER TOMATO PRODUCTION

    SBC: Arc Ventures Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN 1987 RUTGERS PROFESSORS COMPLETED KEY RESEARCH ON SINGLE CLUSTER TOMATO PRODUCTION. THE RESULTS INDICATE THIS COUNTER INTUITIVE (I.E.; INNOVATIVE) IDEA CAN REVOLUTIONIZE TOMATO GROWING IN GREENHOUSES TO SUPPLY VINE RIPENED TOMATOES YEAR AROUND AT AN ATTRACTIVE PRICE. THE CURRENT TOMATO GROWING STRATEGY IS TO GROW PLANTS THROUGH AN ENTIRE SELLING SEASON. INTUITIVELY THIS STRATEGY IS REASONABLE S ...

  3. Composite Stuff-Proof Windshield and Lightweight Pilothouse Assembly

    SBC: PACKER TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL (FORME            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II effort builds on Phase I. Phase II starts with an integrated product and process design and engineering analysis of the baseline structure described in the Phase I report and variants that may reduce cost and risk. The emphasis is on use ofnonlinear FEA with continuum analysis to handle stiffeners, window frames, and connectors. After review and approval by SOCOM, the design is fab ...

  4. Remote Runway Survey System to Measure Soil Type, Load Bearing Capacity, Slope and Grades

    SBC: ZYBRON OPTICAL ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Traditionally the Air Force Special Operations Forces (AFSOF) physically measures assault zone characteristics such as physical dimensions, magnetic orientation, coordinates, obstacles, elevation, weight-bearing capacity of the soil, soil composition,surface tolerances, clearances, and roughness, terminal navigation aid suitability, etc. It is labor intensive and the operator would be exposed to t ...

  6. Fluorescence Polarization Assay for the Determination of Fumonisins, Aflatoxins and DON Vomitoxins (Phase II)

    SBC: Diachemix LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fumonisin, Aflatoxin, and DON Vomitoxin are mycotoxins produced by mold and fungus and found in seeds and grain products. Grain mycotoxins affect human health, animal health, and commodity value. Fluorescence Polarization (FPA) diagnostic technology provides an efficient way for grain producers and processors to check mycotoxin levels prior to shipment or final food processi ...

  7. Extractive Fermentation for Production of Lactic Acid from Corn Starch by Filamentous Fungi Immobilized in Fibrous Bed Bioreactor

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

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The ability now exists to take simple starches and convert them into biodegradable plastic products for future generations. Using continuous immobilized fungal fermentation simple starches are converted to a 95% pure stream of L(+)-lactic acid. Commercialization of this biodegradable plastic precursor is being enabled by this project. Increasing the yield, volumetric product ...

  8. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  9. Environmentally Safe Polymeric Wood Preservatives

    SBC: NOVAFLUX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The results of the Phase I study demonstrated that modified polybiguanide (PBG) compounds have the ability to significantly protect wood against fungal decay according to the soil block standard at treatment concentrations below 1% without toxic heavy metal ions. Phase I results also indicated that the soil block test could not quantitatively differentiate the merits of the ...

  10. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccine for chicken infectious anemia.

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    The human population relies on food animals as a major source of high quality protein. Maintaining the health of these animals is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Chicken anemia virus (CAV) is an important immunosuppressive pathogen of poultry. We are proposing to improve vaccines and diagnostics for this pathogen to improve animal health. Chicken infectious anemia (CIA) i ...
