We offer a wide diversity of assay technologies to identify new bioactive strains, extracts or compounds with potential industrial application. Our technological offer includes:
- Microorganisms isolation and identification.
- Access to one of the most diverse and largest microbial natural product libraries (fungi and bacteria).
- Identification of extracts and/or microorganisms with potential use as biocontrol agents.
- Microbiome analysis.
- High throughput screening platform against bacteria and phytopatogenic fungi.
- Cytotoxicity assays against several cell lines.
- Biofermentations and improvement of the production of bioactive compounds.
- Chemical characterization of extracts.
- Metabolic profiling.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
Fundación MEDINA is a private research centre focused in the discovery of biologically active molecules, drug candidates for unmet medical needs and products of high biotechnological value for the industry. Natural Products are pivotal in inspiring chemists and providing innovative chemistry. With our Microbial Natural Product collection at the head of our research, we are able to contribute significantly to the discovery of new drugs from microorganisms (fungi and bacteria) and their biotechnological applications in health, agriculture, food industry and cosmetics.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
