  2. Isotope Ratiometer for Groundwater Analysis

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 84

    Sufficient and safe water resources are the foundation of a society. With growing Earth population the protection of the limited resources becomes more challenging. Scientific assessment of groundwater vulnerability to depletion and pollution is required for optimized water-use and for intensification of crop production systems with the aim to achieve a sustainable agriculture. Isotope hydrology p ...

  3. Use of Hydroponic and LED Technology to Grow High Nutrient Lettuce, Spinach and Arugula in a Small, Urban, High Density, Indoor Farm

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the industrial northeast there is an under-fulfilled, year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers? markets since 1995. This project will use innovative hydroponic and LED technologies to study and verify if high nutrient, high quality greens can be grown cost effectively in small, urban, high density, indoo ...

  5. PalmStat: a self-contained point of care diagnostic platform

    SBC: Synectic Engineering, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Point of care testing is a test that is performed near or at the site of care. In addition it has come to imply a rapid turnaround time, ease of use and convenience for the patient. Traditional Point of Care single usecartridge tests are lateral flow immunoassay tests where the capture antibody is labeled with a chromagen, which allows for a positive reaction t ...

  8. Targeted photoacoustic imaging of VEGF receptors in angiogenic vasculature

    SBC: SIBTECH, INC.            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to develop a contrast agent for photoacoustic imaging targeted to the receptors of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGFR), so it can be accumulated and retained in tumor endothelial cells by VEGFR-mediated endocytosis. VEGFR are over expressed in angiogenic tumor vasculature from the very early stages of tumor development and therefore VEGFR imag ...

  10. Silencing cardiac-specific microRNAs to prevent pathological remodeling in conges

    SBC: RXGEN INC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heart disease remains the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world and continues to incur costs estimated at 30 billion per year, despite detailed understanding of the mechanisms governing cardiac function and contractility. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a recently discovered family of tiny regulatory RNAs, act as negative regulators of gene ...
