Condensation of water vapour on food packaging films not only reduces the visibility of the packaged contents, but can also result in degradation of food quality and freshness. Modification of film properties through the use of anti-fog additives can prevent the occurrence of condensation and fogging. The additives can be incorporated into polyolefin film resins to form a masterbatch. The team has successfully produced an anti-fog masterbatch with high concentration of anti-fog agent in polyole...

Using a proprietary matrix encapsulation technique, active ingredients are incorporated into a matrix made from a biodegradable polymer. Pesticides, biocides, corrosion inhibitors, enzymes, and bacteria are just some of the examples of the kinds of actives that can be encapsulated. Then the polymer is formed into tablets of various shapes and sizes. Each tablet can deliver its active ingredients into the environment over a predetermined time frame, with precisely controlled dosages to ensure the...

Through a proprietary matrix encapsulation technique, active ingredients are incorporated into a polymer matrix. Then the matrix is machined into microparticles that contain high concentrations of the encapsulated actives. These microparticles can be incorporated into a secondary carrier matrix such as water, oil, hydrogel, polymer, or paint. In that way, they impart the special active ingredient controlled release properties to the secondary carrier matrix. Fragrances, essential oils, vitamins,...

Detection of shrimp and fish pathogens: Shrimp aquaculture has been dramatically affected by many pathogenic diseases e.g. White Spot disease, Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) and Hepatopancreatic microsporidiosis, mainly caused by White spot syndrome virus (WSSV), Vibrio parahaemolyticus (VPAHPND) and Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP) respectively. These pathogens can be detected by LAMP technique targeting a more specific target combined with DNA-functionalized gold nanoparticles as probes. As ...

Synthetic pesticides used in conventional agriculture and especially greenhouses have significant impact on public health and environmental safety due to their vast amount of uncontrolled and indiscriminate use. They accumulate on food products, causing acute or long-term chronic symptoms in consumers. Therefore, the excessive use of pesticides has been a critical public health issue in the past decades.  These problems show that there is a need to find new ways that can help to reduce the use ...

We have developed a proprietary analytical platform that combines tiny molecular machines (biosensors) with a compact reading device to provide minimally trained users with laboratory quality results in minutes.  Our biosensors are proteins engineered to have a customisable detector and a constant signalling module. The signalling uses bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET).  The signal is read on a microfluidic device for speed, ease of use and economy. We developed this technology b...

The microporous polypropylene film was developed through a biaxial film stretching process using a precursor polypropylene sheet with an enriched metastable crystal form. The specific crystal structure was induced by an appropriate nucleating agent at the ppm-level. The subsequent proprietary stretching induces a change in the crystal form and forms highly connect nano-micro voids. The stretching conditions play an important role in tailoring the ultra-high gas permeable capability.

Farms are susceptible to disease outbreak with limited control measures other than containment, culling and decontamination.  The threat of disease for and its effect on farming operations and the industry is ever-present with outbreaks leading to the devastation of livelihoods and economic losses into the billions of dollars. We were focusing on using precision breeding technologies for disease resilience, growth and novel production traits such as reduced allergenicity or specific protein expr...

The nitrite ion (NO2-) is widely recognized as surface & groundwater contaminants originating from agricultural activities, improper wastewater discharge, and atmospheric precipitation. In addition, nitrite exposure is detrimental to general public health. This technology relates to a detection assay that allows faster and more convenient naked eye nitrite detection (within 1 min and without the use of any instruments). In comparison, the conventional Griess method requires heating and 30 mins i...
