Formulation and evaluation of substrates 
Optimized protocols for fungal culture

          DESCRIPTION
  1. Thanks to this service it is possible to start working on mushroom production with a formulation that has been selected in view of its performance compared with other formulations and which leads to time-saving in trial tests and errors.

    APPLICATIONS

    Although different regions of Argentina have lignocellulosic biomass, most of which is waste material that can be useful for mushroom production, it is still not known which one could be the most suitable or if supplements and/or additives are necessary. Our service lab is therefore designed to optimize the substrate chemical formulation and physical properties and to determine which is/are the best material/s and supplements/additives to be used as part of the substrate for the cultivation of edible and medicinal mushrooms.

  2. ADVANTAGES

    • Time-saving and avoiding bad experiences and frustrations.

    • Initial provision of a performance-tested formulation.

    • Our substrate fomulation allows you to discover not yet-tested materials.


Counselling service on edible and medicinal mushroom production

  1. DESCRIPTION

  2. Our lab provides counseling on mushroom production through analyses of technical feasibility, substrate evaluation and business plans involving biotechnology with edible and medicinal mushrooms.

     

  3. APPLICATIONS

    To know in advance the factibility of installing a productive enterprise, it is first necessary to determine the target market, space availability, infrastructure, and time and material availability to be able to make a profitable production scale projection and to make bank credit applications.

  5. ADVANTAGES

    • An entrepreneurship begins with high certainty on its success.

    • Failure saving if one does not know the requirements to open an entrepreneurship.

    • Provision of economic accountant sheets designed based on numbers derived from real daily practice.
