ETS Laboratories Offers New Process Optimization Tools to the Fuel Ethanol Industry
Date:12/3/2008

ETS Laboratories announces the exclusive licensing of DxS Scorpions™ technology to test for contaminant microorganisms that reduce yields in biofuel fermentations. Process optimization and targeted control of contaminant microbes can increase profitability.

St. Helena, Napa CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2008 -- ETS has had the exclusive license to use this technology in the wine industry since 2005 and has developed numerous methods to provide early detection and identification of contaminating microorganisms during wine fermentation and aging. With this additional license ETS will provide the biofuel industry with improved abilities for early detection of contaminant microbes, enabling targeted intervention and reduction in fermentation losses due to microbial contamination.

While DxS' real-time PCR Scorpions™ technology can be utilized in a wide range of genetic diagnostic applications, it can be used for a variety of other purposes including environmental analysis, food testing and biothreat detection, due to its high sensitivity and fast reaction times.

DxS Ltd, is a personalized medicine company and leaders in the provision of companion diagnostics. Dr Stephen Little, CEO of DxS said: "This new agreement shows just how effective Scorpions™ is, not just as an in vitro diagnostic, but also for other uses where testing needs to be done quickly and with a high degree of sensitivity. We are very pleased to be able to be able to provide this additional license, which allows ETS to maintain its position as a leader in the detection of spoilage and contamination organisms."

Gordon Burns, President of ETS Laboratories added: "Scorpions™ has proven itself to be an excellent technology allowing ETS to quickly and efficiently test wines for potentially damaging contaminants and we know it will be equally effective for monitoring biofuel fermentations."

ETS Laboratories is one of the most advanced analytical wine laboratories in the world. Located in St. Helena - Napa Valley, ETS offers wineries and suppliers access to the most modern and technically demanding analytical methods available in the wine industry. ETS was the first independent wine laboratory accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation to ISO 17025 quality standards.

ETS Laboratories has developed a Scorpions™ Biofuel Contamination kit, that contains Scorpions™ primers and probes specific for the detection of microorganisms commonly associated with contamination of the fermentation process. The kit can be used as part of a turnkey solution in the laboratory at the ethanol production facility. Detection and identification of contaminant microbes in the first few hours of the fermentation is critical for effective fermentation management.
