  1. Natural Product Fungicides For Control Of

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The world fungicide market is approximately $5.5 billion and is almost exclusively synthetic chemicals.Over the past decade there has been increasing concern over chemical pesticide residues in the foodsupply, in the groundwater, and associated with worker safety issues. Recent legislation may limit theuse of many existing chemicals and the cost of research has slowed the introduction of new fung ...

  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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- ...

  7. Pcr-based Epidemiology And Diagnostics Of

    SBC: Phenotypics            Topic: N/A

    tRNA genes are generally found clustered, head-to-tail in eubacterial, mitochondrial and chloroplastgenomes, and in assorted orientations in the genomes of species in other kingdoms. Unlike the tRNAgenes, their spacer regions evolve rapidly and vary in length between related species. PCR primersthat are derived from tRNA gene consensus sequences can be developed from each major group ofpathogeni ...

  8. Low Cost Frequency Domain Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Retrokool            Topic: N/A

    A soil moisture measuring probe has been developed that is designed to interface with automatedirrigation systems, and which utilizes an encapsulated, remote sensing, frequency domain method thatelectronically isolates the dielectric measurement from the effects of soil pH and salinity. The sensorhas zero maintenance requirements and an indefinite lifespan. It is low in cost, accurate and userfr ...

  9. Production Of Heterorhabditis Spp.

    SBC: Nematec-biological Control            Topic: N/A

    Heterorhabditis species have unique ecological and behavioral attributes indicating that they are moresuitable for controlling soil insect pests than Steinernema species. A major constraint of usingHeterorhabditis species in fields is the lack of an economic culture system to produce large enoughquantities for commercial application. Most studies have been focused on the production ofSteinernema ...

  10. Low Cost Fire Intensity Mapper

    SBC: Space Instruments            Topic: N/A

    The ability to quickly detect and accurately map fire areas is an invaluable asset for fighting fires. Anairborne imaging system which can accurately map both the flame and ash areas with respect to groundfeatures can greatly aid fire-fighting teams and airborne water-tanker pilots. The thermal infraredsystems now used for fire detection mapping have three significant problems: 1) limited dynam ...
