  1. MOTION COMPENSATING SCALE

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A SCALE FOR WEIGHING LOADS OF UP TO 100 KG. ON MOVING PLATFORMS SUCH AS SHIPS. THE PROBLEM IN THESE SITUATIONS IS THAT ACCELERATION FORCES GENERATED BY THE MOTION OF THE VEHICLE CONSTANTLY VARY THE APPARENT WEIGHT OF ANY OBJECT RESTING ON THE SCALE. THE SOLUTION PROPOSED HERE IS TO USE AN ELECTRONIC SCALE AND COMBINE ITS ELECTRICAL OUTPUT SIGNAL WITH SIGNALS F ...

  2. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...

  4. RAPID MULTIPLE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FREE FALL WATER SAMPLER BASED ON THE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER BAG WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS PORCUPINE SAMPLER WILL BE CAPABLE OF TAKING UP TO 36 THREE LITER WATER SAMPLES AT DEPTHS CONTROLLED FROM THE SURFACE, OR AT DEPTHS DETERMINED BY AN INTERNAL CONTROLLER. THE SAMPLE WILL BE OPTIMIZED FORMINIMUM TRAVEL TIME FROM THE SURFACE TO THE BOTTOM AND BACK SO THAT THE CURRENT FOUR HOUR ON STATION TIME FO ...

  5. A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED DNA GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IMAGE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Genetics Data Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED INSTRUMENT FOR QUANTITATING SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA AND RNA) SEPARATED ACCORDING TO SIZE BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS. THE STARTING POINT FOR ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENCE-STAINED DNA IN GELS WILL BE THE IMAGE DIGITIZATION OF THE ENTIRE GEL ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERN (OR SPECIFIED PORTIONS OF IT) SO THAT THE RELATIVE INTENSITIES OF F ...

  8. AUTOMATED ELECTROPHYSIOLOGIC HEARING SCREENING DEVICE

    SBC: Artificial Hearing Systems Cp            Topic: N/A

    HEARING TESTING OF NEWBORNS AND INFANTS USING AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSES (ABR) HAS GAINED WIDESPREAD ACCEPTANCE AND HAS COME TO BE PREFERRED OVER OTHER LESS ACCURATE TECHNIQUES. ABR'S STRENGTH IS ITS DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF AUDITORY FUNCTION, WHICH RESULTS IN HIGH TEST SPECIFICITY AND SENSITIVITY. CLINICAL USE OF ABR, HOWEVER, IS STILL LIMITED BECAUSE OF THE PROFESSIONAL LABOR-INTENSIVE OPERATION ...

  9. ECCENTRIC CONTRACTIONS EFFECTS ON MUSCULOSKELETAL AGING

    SBC: Design/analysis Services Co            Topic: N/A

    OSTEOPOROSIS, DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE, AND PRIMARY MUSCLE ATROPHY ARE THREE AGE-RELATED DISORDERS OF THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM. OSTEOPOROSIS AFFECTS 90 PERCENT OF WOMEN OVER 75 YEARS, OSTEOARTHRITIS AFFLICTS 80 PERCENT, AND MUSCLE ATROPHY IS PROGRESSIVE WITH AGE. PHYSICAL CONDITIONING RETARDS BONE LOSS, STABILIZES DETERIORATED JOINTS, AND PREVENTS MUSCLE ATROPHY. THE MOST EFFICIENT STIMULUS TO ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A RAPID IMMUNOASSAY FOR SYPHILIS

    SBC: Diamedix Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SYPHILIS, STILL A MAJOR SERIOUS INFECTIOUS DISEASE, CAN BE TREATED EFFECTIVELY IF DIAGNOSED EARLY. THE NUMBER OF DEATHS FROM SYPHILIS IN THE UNITED STATES HAS SHOWN A STEADY DECREASE, BUT THE NUMBER OF SYPHILIS CASES HAS NOT SHOWN A SIGNIFICANT DROP. SEROLOGICAL TESTS PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF SYPHILIS. THESE TESTS MUST BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS IN A LABORATORY. THE PROPOSE ...
