A prototype device for applying beneficial mites to a greenhouse crop
TS-038983 — A method of evenly distributing beneficial mites throughout a greenhouse using a novel device.
Beneficial insects and mites feed on plant pests to improve overall plant health in greenhouses. Also called "biological controls," these mites are a valuable tool in pest management. Current distribution methods typically blow the mites over the crops, which result in uneven application…

Immortalized Duck Embryonic Intestinal Epithelial Cell line (MK-DIEC)
TS-036842 — An immortalized duck embryonic intestinal epithelial cell line (MK-DIEC) for producing live and killed vaccines
Currently most vaccine production is done through live embryonic eggs or primary cell cultures, allowing researchers to replicate pathogen function. Although existing vaccines for influenza and animal intestinal diseases such as porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) exist and are considered effec…

Automating the quantification of color space parameters from Visible Spectrum Absorbance
TS-036603 — Verbal communication of color is challenging, therefore mathematically-standardized color spaces are used. ColorBySpectra is software that in one click can convert large sets of absorbance data obtained from a simple spectrophotometer into color spaces: Hunter Lab, CIEL*c*h* and CIEL*a*b*. It reduces time for data collection, and sample volume and equipment needs. The software is useable on multiple platforms and would be useful in food science or other industries interested in precise color information.
There are several commonly used color spaces that quantify perceived color which include Hunter Lab, CIELab, and CIELch. To obtain these values, samples are usually presented to a colorimeter one sample at a time. Obtaining color data can be time consuming for many samples, and special equipment d…

Paenibacterin: A Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial
TS-014990 — Paenibacterin is a new broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent produced by Paenibacillus thiaminolyticus OSY-SE
Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria mutate or acquire antibiotic resistant genes from another bacterium. Once this change occurs, the bacteria prevent the antibiotic from controlling or killing a bacterial growth (APUA). This results in the growth and proliferation of bacteria with a strong…

Small Molecule Modulators as a Means to Control Tomato Bacterial Canker
TS-014936 — Small molecule modulators of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis (Cmm) as a means to control tomatobacterial canker.
Current efforts to control tomato cankers rely heavily on copper bactericides and antibiotics. These methods have significant limitations in that they exhibit limited efficacy in treatment and may promote pathogen resistance. Common strategies for controlling tomato bacterial canker mainly rely on…
