  1. Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Lignin to High-Value Aromatics

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Significant quantities of biomass are produced annually which represent a huge possible feedstock for biofuels and other valuable chemicals and materials. Numerous industrial processes are available for utilization of the cellulosic fraction of this biomass. However, as much as 40-50% of the biomass is composed of lignin, a cross-linked, aromatic polymer, for which at present there are few economi ...

  2. Molecular Diagnostic to Determine the Sex of Sturgeon at an Early Age

    SBC: APPLIED FOOD TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 87

    Sturgeons have very high potential to become an important and profitable aquaculture species in the US, as males are grown for meat and brood stock and female sturgeon are primarily raised for their eggs (caviar). In fact, sturgeon caviar is the highest-valued aquaculture product worldwide, selling for $104 - $250 per 50 grams (depending on the quality). One 60 kg adult female can produce approxim ...

  4. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...

  5. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccines for infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV).

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    Developing nations rely on poultry as their major protein source. Maintaining poultry health is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Infectious bursal disease is a contagious immunosuppressive disease affecting nearly all poultry producing regions of the world. The disease is caused by infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) a bi-segmented double-stranded RNA virus. Vaccination ...

  6. Development of novel malaria parastie metabolite-based non-invasive diagnostic biosensor

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The long term goal of the project is to use malaria parasite specific low-molecular-weight metabolites as biomarkers for development of sensitive, low-cost, simple, battery-operated field-deployable urine or saliva diagnostic biosensor for detection of malaria infection. Four malaria parasite-specific metabolites (3-Methylindole, Succinylacetone, S-Methyl-L-thiocitrulline, O-Arachidonoyl Glycidol ...

  7. iPAD App for Improving Embryo Transfer Practices

    SBC: ARCHIE MD INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will use interactive mobile technology decision aids for in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients. Phase I will focus on education patients on appropriate embryo transfer numbers. The advent of assisted reproductive technology methods has increased the incidences of high-order multiple births, which are a leading cause of long-term child morbidity, gestational hypertension, placenta p ...

  8. Development of Pills or Tables to Expedite Water Fluoridation

    SBC: KC Industries, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development & commercialization of an innovative, simple-to-use, durable & cost-effective system capable of delivering fluoride to small & med-size potable water systems is essential to increase the availability of fluoridated water to 80 percent of the nation's population by 2020 (CDC's Health People goal). To achieve this goal, a research & development Plan has been created using sodium flu ...

  9. Rapid Detection of Endemic Fungal Infections in the U.S.

    SBC: NANOSHELL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lectin recognition of fungal cell wall polysaccharides will be used to develop a rapid screening chip technology for the detection endemic fungal infection in blood. Fungal infections are life threatening to immune-compromised and immuno-suppressed patients (i.e. premature and malnourished infants, AIDS and cancer patients. seniors, and organ donation recipients). In addition to routine screenin ...

  10. Innovative Nucleic Acids to Diagnose Endemic Fungal Infections

    SBC: FIREBIRD BIOMOLECULAR SCIENCES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Firebird will deliver multiplexed assays that inexpensively detect and distinguish coccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis, and histoplasmosis by targeting the genomic DNA of their causative agents. This assay uses six Firebird technologies: 1. Artificially expanded genetic information systems (AEGIS), which support ultra-clean DNA amplification with ultra-low noise despite the complexity of realbiolog ...
