New Microbial Treatment to Protect Honeybees from Infection by American Foulbrood Disease
Invention SummaryA simple syrup can help deliver freeze-dried bacteriophages to honeybee larvae, effectively inoculating them against a harmful bacterium that causes American Foulbrood disease. In this process, a phage-filled capsule is mixed with syrup and supplied to a hive to facilitate a safe, natural distribution of the helpful microbes via nu...

Solid-State Electrolyte Material for Sodium-Ion Batteries
Invention SummaryWe’ve created a sodium-rich antiperovskite (NaRAP) material that greatly improves battery capabilities. Antiperovskite is a type of crystal structure that exists naturally deep in the earth’s mantle that we now can create in the lab. When used as an electrolyte (the material between positive and negative electrodes on a...
