Iowa State University Center for Crops Utilization Research (CCUR)

1041 Food Sciences Building 536 Farm House Lane Iowa State University Ames, Iowa 50011-1054The Center for Crops Utilization Research (CCUR), established in 1984, is a multidisciplinary research, development, and technology transfer program in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University. CCUR is focused on new processes, products, and markets for corn, soybeans and other Midwest crops. CCUR explores new food, feed, and non-food industrial uses for agricultural materials, and focuses on problem-oriented research directed at expanding midwestern crop utilization. CCUR's mission would not be possible without its modern pilot plant facilities and research labs. By contracting with CCUR and using the Center's equipment and expertise, commercial participants have found a cost-effective way to test new products and processes without interrupting their own full-scale production systems. Mission To identify, coordinate, facilitate and foster mission-oriented interdisciplinary research (both basic and applied), development, technology transfer, and commercialization activities that will increase and enhance utilization of Midwestern crops, and create new agricultural utilization enterprises in Iowa. Vision No grain or crops should leave the state without “adding value”, Iowa remains the world’s primary source of food and feed ingredients, biofuels and biobased products, and ISU becomes the internationally recognized source of new crop-utilization technologies. Goals Develop new product and process technologies to increase the demand for crops and to stimulate economic development Replace petrochemical-derived products with those derived from agricultural resources (biorenewables) Channel the application of biotechnology to increase end-use value and to enhance grain utilization Transfer new technologies to the private sector and encourage successful commercialization

Iowa State University Confocal and Multiphoton Facility

2610 Beardshear Hall, Ames, IA 50011-2036The Confocal and Multiphoton Facility of the Office of Biotechnology provides confocal and multiphoton instrumentation and training for internal and external researchers. Confocal microscopes remove out-of-focus fluorescent light from the image, allowing clearer imaging of the sample, including the ability to view structures and components that were obscured by excess fluorescence that would be generated by standard fluorescence microscopes. Some applications of confocal microscopy include fluorescence microscopy when spatial distribution of cellular or other structures is important to the research being conducted, acquisition of a stack of images that can be used for 3D-reconstruction, viewing structures in thick tissue and removing background and cross-talk fluorescence or fluorescence from other structures that obscure viewing of the desired structure. The confocal microscope in the Confocal and Multiphoton Facility allows for real-time optical sectioning of fixed and living specimens, providing significant improvements in optical contrast and resolution over traditional light and fluorescence microscopy. The facility is equipped with a Leica SP5 X MP confocal/multiphoton microscope system with an inverted microscope front end. New technology available on this system includes a white light laser, IR laser and optical parametric oscillator (OPO). Researchers are no longer limited to three or four lasers at three or four fixed wavelengths but can tune the white light laser to any wavelength between 470 and 670 nm, which has a similar effect to having 200 lasers and 200 wavelengths. This allows researchers to select the excitation wavelength that is best suited to their samples and will result in maximum fluorescence emission. On the emission side, the system has an Acousto-Optical Beam Splitter (AOBS) which allows researchers to precisely set the emission wavelengths they would like to capture rather than be limited to preset emission ranges determined by fixed filter sets. Both of these technologies help to separate fluorescence signals with close excitation and/or emission spectra.

West Liberty Foods, LLC.

West Liberty, IA, 52776 United StatesIn 1943, Louis H. Rich established the Rock Island Produce Company from Rock Island, Illinois, to West Liberty, Iowa. By 1946, the plant was converted to a chicken slaughter facility. Martin and Norman Rich, both sons of Louis, decided the company would undergo a massive revamp, and thus in 1949 the company began focusing on turkey products. In 1960, The Rock Island Produce Company changed their name to Louis Rich Foods, Inc. and undertook the first expansion of the West Liberty facility. 19 years later, in 1979, the company was acquired by Oscar Mayer, General Foods, and Phillip Morris. The facility ran until 1996, when Oscar Mayer, a division of Phillip Morris, announced they were closing the West Liberty facility effective December 31. At that time, the Iowa Turkey Growers Cooperative (ITGC) was formed by 47 Iowa-based turkey growers. ITGC purchased the West Liberty, Iowa facility and began to run their business as West Liberty Foods. In 1997, the first turkeys were processed by the Cooperative. Three years later, in 2000, West Liberty Foods purchased a facility in Sigourney, Iowa. That facility was sold in late 2012. In 2002, the USDA-inspected Research and Development Center was opened in West Liberty, Iowa. One year later, the Mount Pleasant, Iowa facility was opened and then expanded in 2004. By 2005, West Liberty Foods opened a state-of-the-art Quality Assurance Laboratory in West Liberty. Only four years after the opening of the Mount Pleasant, Iowa plant, West Liberty Foods expanded towards the west by building and opening a new facility in Tremonton, Utah in 2007. In 2008 the Hearts & Hands Children's Academy opened in Tremonton, Utah. In 2012 West Liberty Foods became a Landfill Free Company. All three facilities were independently verified by NSF International Strategic Registrations in which West Liberty Foods demonstrated that less than 1% of all waste is being sent to a landfill. The company’s combined total saved waste is 7.5 million lbs annually and they are one of the first companies in the United States to have this claim verified by a third-party organization. In 2013, High Pressure Pasteurization systems were installed in the Mount Pleasant, Iowa and Tremonton, Utah facilities. In 2014 West Liberty Foods purchased a fourth manufacturing facility in Bolingbrook, IL.
