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.
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.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Novel method for the detection of adulteration of saffron with gardeniaResearchers from the (Micro)-Separation Techniques Research Group of the Department of Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Engineering of the University of Alcalá has developed a procedure for the detection of adulterations of saffron with gardenia based on the detection of geniposide by Liquid Chromatography with High–Resolution Mass Spectrometry detection. The procedure allows to detect adulterations with gardenia in an unambiguous and sensitive way. A problem not solved at present by any other existing methods. The group is looking for companies in the agro-food sector to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance or patent licensing agreements.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Antimicrobial electrospun fiber membrane with retention and controlled release capacity of active substancesResearchers from the Department of Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of the University of Alcalá in collaboration with researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Physics of the University of Almería, presents a procedure for the manufacture of active membranes based on submicron fibers combining an antimicrobial action with the ability to retain apolar contaminants in aqueous solution. The membranes are produced by an electrospinning process in aqueous solution from mixtures of water soluble polyacids and polyols, which are subsequently stabilized by a thermal curing process and post-functionalized by the incorporation of amino-terminated dendrimers by a grafting process using a coupling agent. The material can be applied to the treatment of drinking water, to the regeneration of waste water, to the treatment of process waters and also to the controlled release of active substances, such as drugs, food preservatives, etc. The group seeks companies from the pharmaceutical, food, material technology and environmental sectors to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreement with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.

Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Staphylococcus pseudintermedius & bacteriocins – various applicationsThe subject of the present offer is new bacterial strain Staphylococcus pseudintermedius Sp222, isolated from dog pathologic dermal lesions. The offer includes also peptide and protein bacteriocins produced by S. pseudintermedius Sp222. These bacteriocins exhibit a broad spectrum of biological activities: - bacteriocin BacSp222 is able to kill a variety of Gram+ bacteria strains, including the methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strain. It is also cytotoxic towards selected eukaryotic cells and is resistant to action of proteolytic enzymes (either eukaryotic or prokaryotic) as well as to high temperature. The biological activity of BacSp222 is sustained even after limited fragmentation of its molecule by chemical reagents; - lysostaphin Sp222 has an ability to effectively lyse (and, in consequence, to kill) the cells of Gram+ bacteria.
