HPC083  |  Sustainable Production of Phyto-ingredients using Hairy Root Cultures

Plants and plant-derived ingredients are common and of major importance in the fields of pharmacy, food and cosmetics. The drawback of using plant-based innovative ingredients is that their production is influenced by many factors such as growth conditions, fluctuating yields, large time-scales of plant growth etc. Hairy root cultures of various pharmacologically significant plants present an attractive production platform that can be customized for various applications to reproducibly generate valuable compounds.

HPC114  |  DNA Probe Kits for the Detection of Bacterial Pathogens

Fish aquaculture is constrained by different diseases. Diagnosis is achieved through conventional methods such as microscopy, bacterial culture and biochemical tests, which are time-consuming and inaccurate. Endpoint PCR may be an alternative, however, it is limited to qualitative detection coupled with laborious post-PCR processing. The DNA Probe Kits offer an alternative approach to disease diagnosis because these comprise highly specific probes for real-time detection of bacterial pathogens and improved qPCR assay protocol that enables multi-probe, multi-amplicon length and multi-species detection in a single qPCR run. These kits are essential components of qPCR assay for rapid, accurate and safer pathogen detection.

USS060  |  Illumination System for Photobioreactors

The technology described herein is related to the development of an illumination system which is designed to provide sufficient natural lighting to different regions of the photobioreactor with homogenous light intensity. As a result, the effectiveness of the photobioreactor for algae production can be improved without any increase in electrical consumption. The system which consists of an array of heliostats, concave mirrors and fresnel lense as well as fiber optical wires to transfer collected lights to the bottom of the photobioreactor can be integrated to both open and closed type of photobioreactors.
