BACTERIA: A MINE OF VALUABLE RESOURCES
A new class of natural-sourced raw materials is coming
Bacfarm offers real solutions for a changing market. Everything comes from a solid research developed at the University of Cagliari that led the researchers of Bacfarm to the invention of a method to extract biomolecules from the bacterial S-Layer.
It is the outer membrane of some microorganisms, a biological structure made to be unbreakable, from which the team, thanks to a special know-how, isolates its components.
HOW IT WORKS
They are microorganisms that have developed a strong resistance to the extreme environmental conditions of their natural habitats, for example: high doses of radiation, high temperatures, high salinity, desiccation and more.
The outermost membrane that covers these organisms, the S-Layer, is designed by nature to act as a shield and to ensure their survival. This structure represents an inexhaustible source for new raw materials with extraordinary biological characteristics.
These innovative biomolecules have enormous potential in various fields. Bacfarm develops tailor-made solutions through a specific research that adds value to the product and makes it unique and competitive.
