Celbius and Sheffield University awarded a Business Interaction Voucher
Low power ultrasound can affect the performance of many different fermentation processes. Celbius, in collaboration with Dr Jagroop Pandhal at the University of Sheffield, is investigating the effects of sonication on the expression and activity of certain proteins in E. coli. This organism is a work-horse of the biotechnology industry, and responsible for the production of many proteins for pharmaceuticals and biocatalysis. The collaboration was established via Celbius’ membership of the CBMNet (Crossing Biological Membranes), a BBSRC NIBB, and the work will be funded through the award of a Business Interaction Voucher.
