Resumen:
Un centro alemán de investigación ambiental ha desarrollado un test luminoso de agua basado en un biosensor de arsénico que utiliza la bacteria bioreporter E.coli K12. Este test permite realizar muchas medidas paralelas en poco tiempo y monitorizar la calidad del agua potable de forma sencilla. El test es una alternativa a los métodos convencionales, que se basan en la multiplicación de microbios en el agua hasta que se detectan los productos finales metabólicos o las colonias formadas. Pero este método tarda varios días y no ofrece información sobre la actividad de los microbios. Se buscan socios en el sector de monitorización de agua potable para establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Precise and cost effective arsenic biosensor for drinking water monitoring
Summary:
A German centre for environmental research has developed a luminous water test based on an arsenic biosensor using bioreporter bacteria. The test allows many parallel measurements in a short time frame and easy handling to monitor drinking water quality. The institution is looking for partners active in the field of drinking water monitoring for technology transfer under commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Description:
A German centre for environmental research developed a luminous water test, which is based on an arsenic biosensor using bioreporter bacteria. The conventional methods are based on the multiplication of the water microbes until metabolic end products are detectable or colonies are formed. This often needs several days. Molecular-biological identifications of individual strains are under development. However, contaminations with further microbes will not be noticed. Furthermore, these molecular-biological methods do not provide any information about the activity of the microbes. The test allows many parallel measurements in a short time frame, economic prise and easy handling. The technology is based on light-emitting biosensor using a genetically modified bioreporter bacteria E.coli K12 in a portable water testing device. The research centre is looking for organisations (industrial or research) active in drinking water monitoring, potential users and device developers for technology transfer under commercial agreement with technical assistance.
