- Prototype | Morbidostat: Unraveling Antimicrobial Resistance
Morbidostat is a computer-controlled continuous culture device that automatically adjusts drug concentration to maintain constant growth inhibition in microbial cultures. As bacteria acquire mutations that give them resistance against drugs, they are able to tolerate higher drug concentrations and grow faster, thus removing selective pressure, the driving force of evolution. To compensate for this, morbidostat increases drug concentration sufficiently to keep bacteria at their original growth rate, therefore maintaining selective pressure over time. This system allows for data acquisition to model microbial evolution under antimicrobial stress, optimize biocide dosage strategies and develop highly antimicrobial-resistant strains used to test the performance of new biocides, among other applications.

- Pilot | iDVP: Integral Discharges Valorization Point
Developed within the Life iSEAS project, in iDVP, the biorefinery concept is applied to the integral revalorization of fishing discards. It consists of devices for crushing/grinding/homogenization, autoclave, meat-bone separator for fish mince production, 300-500 L reactors configured for controlled chemical/enzymatic hydrolysis, biocompound separation and purification systems including tricanter centrifuges and membrane equipment (micro and ultrafiltration), and devices used for concentration (vacuum evaporator) and drying (freeze-dryer and spray dryer). For further information, please contact us by e-mail.
- Software | GOVOCITOS
Govocitos is a free image analysis software that allows for easy and accurate determination of reproductive parameters in fish based on histological images. Although designed to estimate fish fertility, its applications are expandable to other counting, measurement and classification problems (i.e. pollen count, oncology and cytology, etc.).
