  • 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).

  • Patent | Procedure for the extraction of hyaluronic acid from fish vitreous humor

    Authors: Miguel Anxo Murado; Maria Montemayor Castroviejo; Marta López Cabo; Maria del Pilar Gonzalez Fernández; Laura Pastoriza Enriquez

    Technique for the preparation of hyaluronic acid (AH) based on fish vitreous humor for its use in cosmetics and clinical work. The process comprises protein electrodeposition and simultaneous diafiltration with total recirculation. This procedure allows for selective recovery of impure sediments, precipitation of AH and solubilization of proteins, yielding AH with purity over 99.5%. More detailed information can be found here.
