Biosensors for food safety and quality control
Summary:
A Basque biotech SME with broad experience in developing biosensors with application into the food industry is developing innovative miniaturized biosensors by using screen-printing technology and compact transduction systems. Advantages are low cost, quick and easy quantification of key parameters of processes.
They are looking for food or biotechnological companies interested in validate biosensors in their industrial processes or in collaborate in affinity systems development.
Description:
It is a Basque biotech SME with broad experience developing biosensors with application into the food industry. Concretely, it has already developed and commercialized biosensors in the wine sector for the determination of quality parameters of grapes and wines, for histamine quantification in seafood and for lactose quantification in delactosed products. These experiences have provided this company the opportunity to achieve growth, diversification and world-wide internationalization.
Control of food quality and safety is essential to guarantee consumers protection and comply with the current European legislation. In the agrofood industry exists a growing need to develop quick and easy methods for monitoring procedures that assure products quality and safety. Biosensors are important biotechnological based tools in the food industry that allow meeting the previous mentioned need, representing an effective, fast and economical method.
The SME proposes the development of disposable miniaturized enzymatic biosensors or affinity biosensors to be applied for routine screening procedures. Miniaturization of biosensors by using screen-printing technology and compact transduction systems, allows reproducible large-scale fabrication in order to make biosensors more competitive with great advantages in the simplification of monitoring procedures.
The development of this technology is at its initial stage. The Basque SME is working in different aspects of the development:
· High reproducible fabrication of disposable electrodes
· User friendly miniaturized device
· Affinity systems
· Large scale fabrication of enzymes
The SME is looking for technical cooperation with agrofood or biotechnological companies. It offers its expertise and looks for companies interested in the development of one specific miniaturized biosensor to be deployed into their industrial processes. The role of the partner will be to validate the biosensor in its industrial processes, obtaining a biosensor which fulfil its specific needs.
The SME is also willing to collaborate on affinity systems developments.
Advantages and Innovations:
For the agrofood industry it is of great importance the monitorization of key parameters for quality and safety control. Currently detection methods implanted in the food industries are expensive and time consuming. The companies are demanding low cost, fast and accurate technologies for the quantification of key parameters at real time. The biosensoric technology of the Basque SME complies with all these requirements.
Miniaturization of biosensors by using screen-printing technology and compact transduction systems, allows reproducible large-scale fabrication in order to make biosensors more competitive. Miniaturized ready to use biosensors and user-friendly measure devices will provide an innovative solution with great impact in the food industry by offering quick and easy solutions for monitoring procedures.
The technology is very competitive offering to the agrofood industry and alternative methodology for screening procedures with the following advantages, real time screening procedures, ready to use, accuracy, simplicity, low cost.
