Consultation for mass propagation of inoculum for bioremediation
MBT provides consultation services for clients needing help with deciding bioremediation approach to decontaminating soils or bioconversion of lignocellulosic wastes to bio-products of economic importance. Furthermore, MBT can undertake mass production of a chosen fungus or consortium of organisms clients might need for bioconversion/bioremediation purposes.
Evaluation of quality of inoculum for bioremediation studies
The viability of inoculum is crucial to the overall success of a bioremediation project. MBT can assist clients by evaluating the number of target organisms propagules in the inoculum using microbiological and DNA-based methods.
Stock cultures for biomodification of lignocellulose waste and biodegradation of pollutants
MBT knows how to deploy fungi to deal with lignocellulose waste recycling and bioremediation of recalcitrant organ pollutants. Fungi are unique in their ability to degrade lignocellulose and are capable of tolerating high concentrations of pollutants. Versatility and robustness make fungi very efficient bioremediation agents. However, a thorough understanding of the ecophysiology of fungi and the mechanism of their action are required to tap into their tremendous potential for bio-modification and bioremediation. Mycorrhiza Biotech serves the needs of clients looking for effective means for lignocellulose waste recycling and pollutant remediation MBT utilizes selected fungal cultures from its extensive fungal culture collection to meet client’s projects goals and peculiarities of substrate or project site. Stock cultures can contain one or several aggressive wood-degrading fungi, especially white-rot fungi (WRF). MBT uses both model (Phanerochaete spp.) and non-model organisms (WRF). All materials provided to clients are accompanied with certification of their identity (cultural traits and DNA sequence ID).
