  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. Gravel Mulch Buffers

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Water quality and soil erosion are high priority issues for U.S. agriculture. In more humid areas of theU.S., vegetation filter strips have proven to be an effective method of reducing erosion and improvingwater quality. Filter strips are less effective in the West due to sparser vegetation and more variablerainfall. In addition, establishment of vegetation is more difficult in many western wat ...

  5. Activated Carbons From Pecan Shells:

    SBC: Rio Grande Environmental            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses two problems of environmental and economic importance to New Mexico.The first problem is the value-added utilization of pecan shells, and agricultural waste from oneof New Mexico's most important crops. The second problem is the need to remove metal andorganic contaminants of environmental concern from wastewater produced by some of NewMexico's economically important indust ...

  6. Housing and Health Care for Rural Communities Using the Elder Care Housing Opportunities (ECHO) Approach

    SBC: The Glenn H. Woods Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I of this SBIR proposal will study the feasibility of ECHO housing accompanied with Home Health Care insurance, as a revenue-generating opportunity for rural communities. The proposed objectives are summarized as follows: 1. To perform three needs assessments in the state of Vermont of homeowners 55 years old and over living in rural areas. To ascertain a. the feasibility of ECHO housing ...

  8. AN YTTRIUM ALUMINUM PEROVSKITE BASED GAMMA-RAY DOSIMETER

    SBC: W Peter Trower Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO EXPLOIT THE PROPERTIES OF OUR NEW, FAST, BRIGHT SCINTILLATOR, YAIO3:CE(+3) (YAP), TO CONSTRUCT A DETECTOR FOR PHOTONS WITH ENERGIES FROM 20 KEV TO 3 MEV. AN ARRAY OF THESE INDIVIDUAL DETECTORS WILL SERVE AS THE BASIS FOR A BROAD-BAND Y-RAY DOSIMETER CAPABLE OF MEASURING EXPOSURES FROM 5 MR/H TO 1 R/H AND EQUIVALENT DOSES FROM 5 X 10(-2) TO 10 (+4) MSV/H. THEA ADVANTAGES OF YAP SCINTI ...

  9. APPLE PACKING LINE VISION ROBOTIC SYSTEM FOR DEFECT REMOVAL

    SBC: AGRI-TECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    APPLE PACKING PROCESS STILL IS DONE BY HAND. ALONG THE APPLE CONVEYERS, WORKERS ARE PLACED TO MONITOR THE PASSING APPLES AND REMOVE THE ROTTED, DAMAGED, DISEASED APPLES AND FOREIGN MATERIALS. THIS LABOR INTENSIVE WORK IN A WET AND DIRTY ENVIRONMENT IS NOT ONLY TEDIOUS AND CAUSES FATIGUE TO EYES, BUT ALSO DIFFICULT TO PREVENT THE UNDESIRABLE OBJECTS FROM PASSING THROUGH THE LINE. IT HAS BEEN AN INC ...
