OPEN AND SYSTEMATIC INNOVATION MODEL
ALLIANCES WITH THE BEST UNIVERSITIES AND RESEARCH CENTERS
PROTECTION OF INNOVATION
Name: Development of a kit for detection and quantification of Shiga-toxin-producing bacteria.
Application: The use of this technology in the salmon industry will release an improved analytical service to obtain surface and fillet results in detection and quantification in significantly less time than available services in the market.
Actors: Institute for Nutrition and Food Technology-Fundación Copec UC – Natufeed.
Line and co-financing: Technological Contracts for innovation, Chilean economic development agency
Name: Control of flies in poultry by oral administration additives.
