The BEA accepts deposits of new strains of microalgae and cyanobacteria with unique characteristics from fresh, brackish, marine and hypersaline water environments, as well as from terrestrial environments. Such strains may be taxonomically important as type material or may be hard to obtain and grow, or they may exhibit unique physiological and/or biochemical features, such as having been isolated in an extreme environment or having been useful to industrial research (food, cosmetics, nutraceutical or aquaculture industries or the like).

The strains must be viable in the collection via subculture in liquid and/or solid media (agar).

The strains must be identified at the species level by a taxonomical authority and must be free from fungi, protozoa or other microalgae or cyanobacteria. The depositor must provide information regarding:

  1. Its taxonomical identification (taxonomical identifier, proposed taxonomical description, etc.)
  2.  Where it was found (place, date, collector,etc.)
  3. The characteristics of its habitat (temperature, pH, conductivity,…)
  4. Its toxicity or dangers to health or the environment
  5. Culture and care conditions (temperature, radiation, culture media, etc.)

All of this information must be provided on the algae deposit request form.

All of the strains sent for deposit must be in a liquid or agar culture. The minimum number of replicas to be supplied for deposit is five. The microalgae and cyanobacteria cultures must contain a minimum of 102 to 104 cells per milliliter.

The strains will be assigned a temporary reference number until the viability analysis is complete. This analysis consists of growing several subcultures of the strains in the proposed culture medium. The average time required for this viability analysis is from 7 to 35 days, depending on the strains.

If after this time the cultures retain their quality, that is, they are still unialgal, exhibit no contamination from fungi or protozoa and are growing properly, the depositor will be informed of the acceptance of the strain deposit, which will then be assigned a permanent code in the BEA catalog and be made available to the public.

To request this service download and fill out the following PDF FORM (STRAIN DEPOSIT FORM [BEA_DF1) and send it to info@marinebiotechnology.org



VIGILANCIA TECNOL√ďGICA

El Banco Espa√Īol de Algas (BEA) dentro del marco de colaboraci√≥n con la Oficina Espa√Īola de Patentes y Marcas (OEPM), incluye en su p√°gina web el servicio de informaci√≥n sobre Alertas Tecnol√≥gicas OEPM.

La Oficina Espa√Īola de Patentes y Marcas (OEPM) ha atendido nuestra petici√≥n de una alerta tecnol√≥gica espec√≠fica sobre Cultivo y Uso de las Microalgas, que recoge todas las solicitudes de patente publicadas en el √°rea recientemente. Puedes consultarla en esta secci√≥n o en la web de la OEPM a trav√©s de este enlace "MICROALGAS: CULTIVO Y USOS"

 Con objeto de facilitar el uso de las patentes como fuente de informaci√≥n t√©cnica, la Oficina Espa√Īola de Patentes y Marcas pone a disposici√≥n del p√ļblico las Alertas Tecnol√≥gicas como un servicio de Informaci√≥n Tecnol√≥gica.

Las Alertas Tecnológicas proporcionan un listado actualizado diariamente de las publicaciones de Solicitudes de Patente más recientes a nivel mundial sobre un tema técnico concreto.

Las √°reas tem√°ticas de cada Alerta son habitualmente establecidas en colaboraci√≥n con las Plataformas Tecnol√≥gicas y otras instituciones u organismos respondiendo a las necesidades de informaci√≥n concretas de empresas y organismos p√ļblicos de investigaci√≥n.

Una vez determinado un tema de inter√©s, los Examinadores de Patentes establecer√°n una estrategia de b√ļsqueda que acceder√° autom√°tica y diariamente al sistema Open Patent System OPS de la Oficina Europea de Patentes. Dicho acceso posibilitar√° la confecci√≥n de una Alerta Tecnol√≥gica. Las estrategias se revisar√°n con periodicidad anual con posterioridad a las actualizaciones anuales de las Clasificaciones Internacional IPC y la Clasificaci√≥n Cooperativa de Patentes CPC.

La información sobre cada patente recogida en la Alerta Tecnológica puede ampliarse accionando el hipervínculo a la base de datos espacenet, la más completa y actualizada, con casi 100 millones de publicaciones, con información bibliográfica, traducción automática, los documentos originales, la familia de patentes, la situación jurídica, las tramitaciones, etc
