Packaging

Packaging ISS Packaging equipment and services have been designed to protect the quality of your sprout products while creating a more efficient sprout packaging and handling routine. Many sprout producers rely on ten or more people to produce 2 tons of sprouts per week. But by incorporating  Pack Off Tables and other ISS manufactured systems into the packaging process, you can significantly improve production – often to the point that you will need just two workers to produce 40 tons of sprouts per day. ISS Packaging equipment also improves your ability to handle your products in a delicate and sanitary manner. With the right equipment, your sprouts can be quickly packaged and prepared for shipment without ever touching human hands, ensuring that your customers receive safe and enjoyable sprout products every time.  Please contact an ISS representative to find out how we can help improve your productivity.

Sprout De Hulling Equipment

Sprout De Hulling Equipment ISS Green Sprout Huller Once a seed is sprouted it sheds its coat (hull). Though the sprout is still quite alive, the dead seed hull begins to decayrather rapidly, bringing theproduct down with it.  The ISS Green Sprout Huller removes these seedcoats gently and accurately as the sprouts travel from one end and out theautomatic exit conveyor at the other end. We make a huller in any size to fit your needs.  Our most popular size removes hulls from 1000 lbs (400 kg) of sprouts per hour, depending on the type of sprout. Wealso build washing systems just for beansprouts and systems  that will do both bean and green sprouts.

Stress Associated Hormones

Stress-associated hormone, norepinephrine, increases proliferation and IL-6 levels of human pancreatic duct epithelial cells and can be inhibited by the dietary agent, sulforaphane. Int J Oncol. 2008 Aug;33(2):415-9 Chan C, Lin HJ, Lin J. Center for Childhood Cancer, Columbus Children's Research Institute and Department of Pediatrics, College of Medicine, Columbus, OH 43205, USA. In current literature there is evidence that psychological factors can affect the incidence and progression of some cancers. Data obtained from animal models support the hypothesis that stress can be a cofactor. The underlying mechanisms for the association between psychological factors and pancreatic cancer are very poorly understood. In this study, we examined the possible growth promoting effects of the stress-associated hormone, norepinephrine, on immortalized human pancreatic duct epithelial cells. Our results suggest that norepinephrine can increase cell proliferation of human pancreatic duct epithelial cells. We also evaluated the ability of norepinephrine to induce interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-10 (IL-10), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). All of which may promote oncogenesis of immortalized human pancreatic duct epithelial cells.
