  2. 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 ...

  3. Facilitated Processing Of Naturally

    SBC: Bc Cotton, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Naturally colored cotton has existed for thousands of years but it generated little commercialinterest in the past because its fibers were shorter and weaker than white cotton. Geneticimprovements have made it possible to spin the fibers on modern textile machines, although theyarns are relatively weak. Stronger textiles can be made from colored cotton using patentedspinning methods, but the nec ...

  5. Mass Rearing Of Geocoris Punctipes And

    SBC: Biotactics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Arthropod pests damage a considerable proportion of food crops. Because the option of relying strictlyon pesticides for arthropod control is becoming more unfeasible due to resistance, pesticide-relatedhealth risks, and an upcoming world food shortage, development of alternative strategies requiresimmediate attention. Because generalist predators feed on diverse assemblages of insect species,tre ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Deashing Of Fishmeal For Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: Dantec Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop a separator that will improve the nutritional quality offishmeal and reduce the pollutants in the effluent streams from fish feed used in aquaculture.High nutritional value and the well-balanced protein composition makes fishmeal an importantfeed ingredient in aquaculture. The digestibility of fishmeal has been improved through thedevelopment of more sensibl ...

  10. Nir Instrument For Cheese Analysis

    SBC: EA Photonics            Topic: N/A

    A near infrared (NIR) instrument based on the Frequency Domain Photon Migration (FDPM) conceptis applied to the analysis of cheese. This instrument is unique because it can quantitatively determinethe wavelength-dependence of material adsorption and scattering in a single measurement. Quantitativemeasurements of absorption and scattering will be performed on cheese using a high bandwidth, multi- ...
