  1. Non-fouling Netting For Aquaculture

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A water-borne net coating is described that will prevent biofouling of netting materials used inaquacultural applications. The novel composition functions through the use of trace quantities ofnaturally occurring antifouling compounds. In addition, it contains no volatile organiccompounds (VOC). The proposed technology is especially attractive since it involves onlyenvironmentally benign compon ...

  2. PRECISE INJECTION OF NH3 USING PULSE-WIDTH MODULATION METERING

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anhydrous ammonia (NH3), a heavily used nitrogen fertilizer, is a volatile gas which flashes at -40 F. It is handles as pressurized liquid and difficult to meter accurately and dispense. Its low cost, due to inexpensive energy, has encouraged wasteful over-application rather than investment in currently costly and ineffective application control systems. Ammonia costs will increase with energy cos ...

  3. Cytokines And Cytokine Assays For Swine

    SBC: Endogen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cytokines play a key role in the immunobiology of swine, and have the potential to improve themanagement of these animals. The pattern and tissue distribution of inflammatory cytokine expressionmay be indicative of the health or infectious status of the animal. Thus, the development of rapidcytokine tests is necessary to exploit this useful diagnostic information.Cytokines may also play another ...

  4. A Rapid Collection And Detection Method For

    SBC: Immunological Associates Of Denver            Topic: N/A

    Studies have found Cryptosporidium parvum (C. parvum) oocysts in 65-97% of surface water tested inthe United States. The current Surface Water Treatment Rule does not include analysis for C. parvum.However, the increased incidence of outbreaks involving Cryptosporidiosis have instigated aninvestigation into whether or not testing should be included in the Enhanced Surface Water TreatmentRule. Th ...

  5. RAPID DETECTION OF ESCHERICHIA COLI 0157:H7

    SBC: Immunological Associates Of Denver            Topic: N/A

    Escherichia coli 0157:H7 is an emerging cause of foodborne illness first identified as an etiological agent in 1982. There is a need for low complexity, rapid (less than four hours) detection method capable of being performed on site at food processing plants in association with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Plans (HACCP). Ideally, this test should be simple to perform and interpret, be low ...

  9. Development of Automated Pig Weighing

    SBC: Osborne Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Raising pigs has become a specialized agribusiness. Pork producers have a desire to improve their efficiency of production in a cost effective manner. One tool to accomplish this is knowing the weight of the pig as it grows. This knowledge provides greater assistance in managing the feeding program as well as avoiding financial penalties when marketing. Feed costs account for 60% of the cost p ...

  10. Low Cost Mass Production Technology For

    SBC: Predation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although widely recognized by the general public and growers as beneficial predators, lady beetles areonly a marginal commercial success. This proposal lays the foundation for commercialization ofColeomegilla maculata, a lady beetle with the potential to be more successful. C. maculata is a betterpest control candidate because it has a wider target pest range than Hippodamia convergens, the onl ...
