MOdular bioSensor platform for Autonomous Contaminants detection in wastewater
The aim of MOSAICo project is to develop an autonomously operating analytical platform with an innovative microbial biosensors system targeting the inhibition of nitrification process during wastewater treatment.
Puratis Sàrl is Swiss R&D company active in domain of environmatal biotechnology. Puratis develops and applies novel wastewater treatment processes for complex organic compounds removal. The expertise of Puratis Sàrl includes the end-of-pipe complex compounds detection, including the construction of bacterial biosensors for the detection of polyaromatic hydrocarbons.
Biosensor Srl is Italien R&D company active in the field of production and commercialization of sensors and biosensors based on the use of biologic material and their applications.
Biosensor Srl has developed for many years a vast array of sensing instruments using algal, bacterial and
enzymatic sensing systems for the detection of various compounds for food and water industry.
