NAQBIO Project

NAQUIBIO project aims to create a veterinary dressing based on a biopolymer that enhances healing and contributes to the improvement of animal health. Through the creation of this dressing, it is expected that the number of cases of infection development, and consequently the use of antibiotics in animals, will decrease and significantly contribute to the safeguarding of their welfare.

Projects approved under Portugal 2020

Projects and Publications

Consortium members participated in BIOPOL 2019 in Stockholm (Sweden) and at the 13th National Meeting of Organic Chemistry and the 6th Meeting of Therapeutic Chemistry in Aveiro (Portugal).

BRINOVA LABORATORY

With an office at ANJE (National Association of Young Entrepreneurs) in Évora (Portugal) and with an R&D Center installed at CAME (Reception Center for Micro and SMEs) in Montemor-o-Novo (Portugal), in this laboratory the BRinova team develops veterinary dressings based on biopolymers and which will be tested by the University of Évora team.

 

BRinova’s R&D laboratory with equipment acquired within the scope of the NAQUIBIO Project and with support from European Union Funds (Fume hood, work benches, ultrasound baths, heated stirring plate, safety cabinet, pH meter, drying oven, precision scales , water purifier, etc.).
