Post-treatment applied to bioprocesses
Definition / Objectives:
The "downstream processes" or, in this precise case, the processes of extraction or purification of biomolecules, group together the operations of separation of the constituents of the environments, extraction of the biomolecules, their purification and their stabilization/formulation.
These processes are necessary in order to complete the bioprocesses and recover the molecules of interest in order to valorize them.
To do this, Materia Nova uses various techniques and protocols developed on a laboratory scale: centrifugation, filtration, membrane, decantation, solvent extraction or chemical lysis... Once recovered, these biomolecules are then characterized and their recovery potential is studied or directly tested in materials or surfaces.
Our strengths :
- A panel of equipment on a laboratory scale to develop the downstream process best suited to the bioprocess or biomass in question and to the molecule of interest.
- Expertise in the formulation of biomolecules in the form of biostimulants.
- In view of the diversity of molecules, our multidisciplinary knowledge and skills represent a strong asset to optimize the process in terms of quality and respect for the environment (LCA).
- Materia Nova has expertise in several fields and sectors of activity, which offers the possibility of exploring several methods of recovery for the extracted molecules, in addition to being able to test them internally directly in materials or surfaces.
- Different techniques and protocols developed on a laboratory scale: centrifugation, filtration, membrane, decantation, extraction by solvent or chemical lysis...
