Microorganisms like bacteria or fungi are part of our lives. Many of them can be beneficial or even essential for our health and for the sustainability of ecosystems.
In the agriculture aerea, microbiology can bring a solution for the control of diseases or of production through the use of fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides, derived from microorganisms.
We also offer soil diagnostic services by performing chemical but also microbiological analyses. Therefore, using innovative molecular biology methods, such as microbiome assays, we qualitatively and quantitatively identify the microbial population of your soils. We dispose of a large collection of phytopathogens for carrying out antifungal and antibacterial tests.
Bacteria or fungi are able to produce certain substances or metabolites with a high added value, such as antibiotics, certain enzymes, omega 3, etc. This microbial characteristic is widely used and operated in industry (pharmaceutical, food, agriculture or cosmetics). Contact us if you are interested in developing the potential of one or more microorganisms.
Actually, thanks to scientific advances, many adapted or modified microorganisms are able to produce substances that they can´t synthesize naturally: fatty alcohols, polymers, synthetic enzymes, special oils, etc ... We can help you to “create” your own microorganism.
Thanks to its ability to metabolize some products considered toxic for humans (toluene, benzene, naphthalene, etc.), many bacterial strains are used in bioremediation. We will help you with the development of your own decontamination system, from the laboratory to the treatment station.
Another interesting feature that some microorganisms have is the ability to use waste (spoiled fruits, bagasse, garbage, industrial residues, etc.) as a nutrient. Such property promotes the recycling of food residues or industrial wastes for new uses. If you have an accumulation of waste and you are interested in recycling, contact us.
The use of microorganisms in the biotechnology aerea leads to a wide range of applications with many advantages in terms of sustainability and environmental protection.
