High-standard Technological Services (STANs)


The High-standard Technological services (STANs) comprise activities such as assays, technical assistance and training, for which the equipment, infrastructure and human resources are granted by INIBIOLP. STANs are offered to several areas of society.

At present INIBIOLP offers the following STANs:


Analysis of fatty acids by gas chromatography


STAN Specifications Analysis of fatty acids by gas chromatography.
Methodology Analysis by CGC: An Omega Wax 250 column of 30 m will be used.
The operative conditions will be as follows: injector in split mode at 260 260°C, programmed oven temperature, and flame ionization detector will be maintained at 280°C.
Helium will be the gas carrier at a flux of 1-2 ml/min.
Equipment Gaseous Chromatograph Hewlett Packard 6890
Primary Discipline Biochemistry
Secondary Discipline Analytical Chemistry.
Area of application Hygiene, diet and nutrition. Others.
Industrial Activity Assays and technical analysis.


Analysis of organic compounds by gaseous chromatography - mass spectrometry:

1) Analysis by gaseous chromatography – mass spectometry.
2) Interpretation of results by comparison with spectral commercial libraries.


STAN Specifications Analysis by gaseous chromatography – mass spectrometry for the detection / identification of compounds or organic contaminants.
Methodology 1) Determination of optimal operational conditions of sample nature. Sample taking (liquid or gaseous) and injection. Deliver of chromatogram and spectra of interest in printed or electronic version.
2) Identity assignment by comparison of spectra obtained with spectra commercial libraries (NIST 05/EPA/NIH, pesticides, essential oils and others) and with other spectra obtained from standards (provided by the applicant).
Equipment Capillar gas chromatograph with spectrometry detector of mass Agilent CGC-HP6890 MS5975VL

Secondary Discipline Analytical Chemistry.
Area of application Hygiene, diet and nutrition. Other
Industrial Activity Assays and technical analysis.


Protein Ultracentrifugation:

Fractioning of biological samples by differential ultracentrifugation.

STAN Specifications Fractioning of biological samples by differential ultracentrifugation.
Methodology The fractioning of biological samples will be performed previously to adequate rotor selection and rotation velocity, solvent density, etc.
Installation startup, sample loading, and ultracentrifugation.
Equipment Beckman Coulter LE-80K Preparative Ultracentrifuge.
Primary Discipline Biochemistry
Secondary Discipline Biology
Area of application General Knowledge Promotion. Natural and Exact Sciences.
Industrial Activity Assays and technical analysis.


Assays of insecticide efficacy

STAN Specifications Evaluation of insecticide capacity. Analysis of insecticide efficacy of biological, physical or chemical insecticide agents by means of mortality determination, effect on life cycle of insects, etc, and/or evaluation of lethal doses.
Methodology Bioassays will be performed by exposing insects to compounds to be evaluated. The application mode depends on the physicochemical properties of the compound and/or as it was solicited. Batches of at least 10 insects will be employed, with at least 4 replicas for each concentration or condition to be assayed.
Statistical analysis of the results.
Primary Discipline Biology
Secondary Discipline Biology - Entomology.
Area of application Vegetal Health – Plagues
Industrial Activity Cereal farming except forage crop and seeds (Including buckwheat, malting barley, etc.)
Farming of pome fruits (Including quince, loquat, etc.)
