Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:ICHNAEA A Software System for the Microbial Source Tracking ProblemA software system for the Microbial Source Tracking (MST) problem has been developed in order to solve the problems of the current predictive models. It provides the accuracy and the precision of the prediction, the estimation for both the degree of dilution and the age of the pollution for the analyzed example. Partners to license the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

The biotechnological production of antimicrobial metabolites was carried out using Lactobacillus plantarum strains. Two industrial wastes, whey, and wine distilled lees (or vinasses) were assayed in order to make the process economically competitive with regard to the chemical one. The extracts are mainly composed by lactic acid, 3-phenyllactic and bacteriocins. Whey was enzymatically hydrolyzed and the solutions were fermented sequentially or simultaneously. The bioprocesses were carried out continuously or discontinuously

Universidad de Alicante posted this:Novel method to increase production and extraction of phytosterolsThe research group "Proteomics and functional genomics of plants of the University of Alicante has developed a new procedure that increases the production and extraction of phytosterols in plant cell cultures in vitro. To do this, is added to the culture medium cyclodextrins and optionally methyl jasmonate. After growing under certain conditions, phytosterols are obtained with yields higher than the current extraction techniques from the plant material. This method allows a stable production of phytosterols, independent of geographical, seasonal and environmental factors, with reduced spaces requirements and easier process of purification and industrial scaling. The group is looking for companies interested in acquiring the technology for commercial exploitation. Innovative aspects Nowadays, the classical method of extracting phytosterols from vegetable raw materials has a very low yield. This, combined with the large amount of plant material needed to extract a significant amount of phytosterols from global natural sources (only could be supplied 10% of Western populations), causes a high cost of these products. With this new process of in vitro plant cell culture, it is possible to increase production and efficiency of extraction of phytosterols from natural resources for a greater percentage of the population that could benefit from the positive effects of phytosterols on health.
