An advanced and innovative device for environmental biological samples transport
The Polish research institute during its near 90-years activity has achieved leading position in creating science development in such disciplines as environment engineering, engineering geology and mining. The Institute’s activity concentrations at problem-solving of mineral resources exploitation industry, applied technologies and environment protection. Offered technology is intended for the transport of environmental biological samples, such as activated sludge from biological wastewater treatment plants or soil samples, for laboratory analysis. At the same time, the device provides stable oxygen and temperature conditions for transported biological samples, resulting in very accurate test results. Such conditions are achieved by the use of cooling inserts embedded in the pockets and the controller, which allows adjustment of the aeration of the sample from the continuous mode to the time interval mode. Also important is the positioning of the diffuser at the bottom of the vessel, which results in air flow through the entire sample necessary to sustain the vital functions of the microorganisms contained in the sample (optionally the device has an oxygen probe).
The potential partner is any company or research institute that handles sampling in field, for e.g.:
- Water treatment companies,
- Monitoring and advisory institution,
- Environmental consulting companies.
Technology owner offers license or commercial agreement with technological support.
