Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Development and method of construction of a new electrochemical sensor of Magnesium (Mg2 +), without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents to the sampleThe research group in Bioelectrochemistry and Biosensors of the University of Alcalá in collaboration with the Textile Industry Research Association (AITEX) has developed an electrochemical sensor of magnesium (Mg2 +) and a construction method based on the formation of a polymeric three-dimensional network that allows the entrapment / immobilization of a selective indicator for Mg2 +, eriochrome black T, by the use of a crosslinking agent and a polymer. The combination of these three reagents allows the construction of the sensor on any conductive surface, avoiding the electro polymerization of the indicator. The resulting sensor allows to measure MG2 + in any type of samples, without the need to add organic salts, additives or organic solvents. The quantification of Mg2 + is done directly by incubating the sensor in the sample containing the analyte, resulting in a modification of the amperometric signal proportional to its concentration. This method has many applications especially in health and biomedical sector since Mg2 + participates in such important activities as neuronal, neuromuscular transmission, or regulation of blood pressure and plays a key role in various pathologies such as vascular and migraines headache. The group is looking for companies in the agro-food, bio-sanitary and environmental sectors, with the aim of reaching technical collaboration agreements, commercial agreements or patent licenses.

The system could be integrate inside a third-party software, or works online. Vitadieta offers functionalities of cross-selling oriented to franchises, recomending product and services of each franchise with the diets.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:Bio-preservant solution to control foodborne pathogens in fresh-cut fruitOur technology is based on a microorganism with demonstrated bio-preservative activity. The strain CPA-7 of Pseudomonas graminis, isolated from fruit, is capable of inhibiting the growth of foodborne human pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli O157:H7 in fresh-cut fruit. The University of Lleida seeks an industrial partner willing to adopt a new technology for biological control of foodborne pathogenic bacteria in fresh-cut fruit. The type of partner sought is for the regulatory development and commercialization of the protected technology under a license agreement.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:SensoGraph: Fast and cheap method for the sensory food positioningThe training of a panel of tasters can be long and costly for the needs of the food industry. A research group from the University of Alcalá has developed a method that allows a real-time analysis, faster and visual, with comparable results. This method for sensory positioning is based on the opinions of a group of untrained tasters and / or consumers, processed by software that uses geometric techniques rather than statistics. The group seeks to reach commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies in the agrofood sector.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:New method to increase yolk color and egg nutritional qualityThe University of Lleida seeks industrial partners with expertise in the sector of crop production to adopt a new technology of optimized feed solution for egg producers (poultry market). The type of partner sought is for the regulatory codevelopment and commercialization of our solution under a technology license agreement.
Universitat de Lleida posted this:Method based on a nutritional intervention to fight coccidiosisWe seek industrial partners with expertise in the sector of crop production to adopt a new technology useful to deliver optimized feed solution to fight coccidiosis. The type of partner sought is mainly for the regulatory codevelopment and the commercialization of our solution under a technology license agreement. The technology developed relates to a novel genetically engineered variety of maize accumulating extraordinary levels of carotenoids (β-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin and lutein). Poultry raised on this corn were healthy and exhibited substantially higher levels of resistance to coccidiosis, less foot pad dermatitis, reduced number of ulcers and less excretion of pathogen oocysts in feces. Carotenoids accumulate in several tissues (skin, dermis, muscles and fat), conferring high nutritional value and greater consumer acceptance.
