  1. Solar Refrigeration for Storage of Food Products

    SBC: MAGNETIC DEVELOPMENT INC            Topic: 86

    This proposal describes a novel method for the refrigeration and storage of food products that does not use electricity and is cleaner for the environment than any method currently in use. Our concept addresses many important economic and social development issues facing rural America such as access to good quality and safe food, food-borne illnesses, pollution, lack of adequate infrastructure to ...

  2. High Efficiency Low Cost Electrochemical Ammonia Production

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Industrial processes for production of ammonia (NH3) and urea nitrogen-based fertilizers aremainly based on the Haber-Bosch process, which involves the heterogeneous reaction ofnitrogen (N2) and hydrogen (H2) on an iron-based catalyst at high pressure (150-300 atm) andhigh temperature (400 & deg;-500 & deg;C). The equilibrium conversion of H2 and N2 gas to NH3 in theHaber-Bosch process is ...

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Precision Combustion, Inc. is developing a compact steam generator as the core of a tractor-pulled agricultural soil steaming disinfestation system. Our prototype 550 pound steam generator is sized to disinfest ~1 acre of soil every 12 hours, at costs similar to applications of methyl bromide or other fumigant packages. Our technology offers an economic and practical alternative to fumigant soil d ...

  4. Targeted Inactivation of the CCR5 HIV Coreceptor with Peptide Nucleic Acids

    SBC: L2 DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 34 million people are currently living with HIV/AIDS. Combination antiviral therapies have significantly reduced the morbidity and mortality of the disease; however, there is currently no cure for the disease. Discovery that a naturally occurring variant of CCR5, the delta32 mutation, renders cells resistant to HIV infection has led to efforts by several a ...

  5. Formulation of LbL microparticle vaccine in microneedle array for intradermal del


    Abstract The ability of the immune system to recognize and initiate an immune response to foreign particles such as bacteria and viruses has generated interest in development of particulate vaccine technologies. We are developing an innovative approach toproduce particulate vaccines via layer-by-layer (LbL) fabrication of synthetic microparticles (MP). We have shown that LbL-MP loaded with epitope ...

  6. Practical high resolution microscopy of un-cut, un-embedded lung biopsies

    SBC: Applikate Technologies LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This aim of this Phase I SBIR proposal from Applikate Technology, LLC, is to validate the use of ClearView, a novel approach to performing complete and non-destructive imaging of tissue specimens, for primary pathologyof lung biopsies. Error rates for diagnoses of lung cancer from biopsies may run as high as 15%. Although the root causes of errors are diverse, ...

  7. Calcaftor, a CFTR stabilizer for Cystic Fibrosis treatment

    SBC: Calista Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Calista Therapeutics has invented Calcaftor, a first-in-class peptide drug that can treat all Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. Calcaftor is validated in the gold standard pre-clinical model of CF using F508 -CFTR lung tissue harvested from CF transplant patients. Results from this model demonstrated a gt25 hour duration of action that enables once daily inhaled n ...

  8. Sterculic Acid Analogs to Inhibit Macular Degeneration

    SBC: L2 DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: NEI

    ABSTRACT The long-term product goal of this project is a small molecule therapeutic for choroidal neovascularization (CNV, the hallmark of wet age-related macular degradation), an abnormal growth of blood vessels in the choroid layer of the eye that results in damage to the retina and consequent blindness. Our lead compound is the natural product sterculic acid, which has been shown to inhibit ...

  9. System for Multiplex Protein:Protein Interaction Studies Modeled with Antibodies

    SBC: AXIOMX INC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overarching goal of Phase I is to produce a method that will generate, identify and clone a catalog of protein-protein interactions in a single rapid experiment. In this proposal we will model the technology using antibody-antigen interactions. Recombinant antibody libraries against a proteome could be produced prior to any need, and then desired affinity r ...
