The espais Biotech provide almost two thousand square metres where companies who need research facilities in biotechnology can set up side by side with UdG research teams who are experts in the field. Biotechnology is a very wide concept which is to be found within the whole range of industrial sectors, over and above the typical health, food or agriculture applications. In fact, market niches have sprung up in frontier areas alongside the traditional sectors, such as functional feeding or vegetable biofactories for pharmaceutical production. Thus, biotechnological applications include anything from human health to biopolymers, lubricants and cosmetics, covering foods, agriculture and the environment. The Parc feels that the sector’s growth potential deserves attention, as can now be seen prioritized by the announcement of a selection process for businesses who are interested in setting up in the Parc Científic.
The Espais Biotech have a common self-service laboratory to facilitate resource optimization. This area has a cleaning area with treated sinks, dish-washers, Transilum, ultraviolet, scales and Milipore filters. There is also a support table area with a thermostatic bath and a cooled cell centrifuge as well as a heavy area with a cooker, autoclave, -80ºC freezer, among other basic or auxiliary apparatus.VIEW LABORATORIES
