Preliminary tests for monitoring cortisol in buffalo milk

Promete has recently completed a preliminary activity for the realization of a portable biosensor for the monitoring of cortisol hormone in buffalo milk, as part of an experimental thesis for the master degree in Science and Technology of Animal Production (Dept. of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Production, University of Naples Federico II - UNINA). For the functionalization of the quartz crystal of the Quartz Crystal Microbalance Eureka (Bioage Srl) Trylight has been used, activating of antibodies following the method developed by the research group of Prof. Raffaele Velotta of the Dept. of Physical Sciences, UNINA (Della Ventura, B., et al. Biomed. Opt. Express 2, 3223-3231 (2011).



PROMETE tests for AcquaPhi AG (Switzerland)

AcquaPhi is an ecological device for the ennoblement of ordinary water, invention of the German researcher Eng. Christian Lange.

The water flows in a pipe over 3 meters long that surrounds the cone (patented) inside, whose structure is based on natural geometric criteria and purely physical, not chemical actions; therefore AcquaPhi is 100% maintenance-free, requires no electricity or additives, and is CO2-neutral.

In the process, water molecules aggregate and form dissipative structures to which mainly positive ions such as calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+) and the hydrogen ion (H+) bind. Deposits and fouling are significantly reduced.

PROMETE has conducted the tests showing such increases in pH and dissolved oxygen, and the significant reduction in limescale deposits.

In the coming months, Roberto Germano, CEO of PROMETE, in the context of the experimental research conducted at PROMETE on the chemical-physical properties of liquid water which are already published in numerous international journals, will be teaching in two innovative Master in two different Italian Universities: UNIMOL - University of Molise, and UNITELMASAPIENZA - the only telematic University directly linked to the largest Italian public University, Sapienza University of Rome.


Interrelation between the health of the environment and the salutogenesis of man, acquisition of new skills in the field of green economy and circular economy, lecturer of the Module: "Elements of classical physics and quantum mechanics applied to cell biology and dynamics of the living in relation to the environment".  a.a. 2021/2022- starting November 2021. Info: bluiris.e@gmail.com



The Master proposes to offer a systematic treatment of the possibilities of integrating conventional medicine with notions, procedures and instruments deriving from the modern Quantum Physics, in a holistic vision of the themes concerning health and wellness, lecturer of the Module: "Water, this unknown".  The Master - the first of its kind to address this innovative topic - will be available in 7 languages, Italian, English, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, German, and Slovenian, in 90 countries around the world.

Trylight: an innovative Promete’s product

Sensitivity and selectivity to a targeted molecule make a biosensor function successfully as a diagnostic device. Whereas sensitivity is designated by the detection limit, selectivity refers to the ability of discerning only a specific target molecule. To accomplish this goal biosensors’ surface needs to be functionalised with receptors that can effectively capture only the target molecules, and among techniques to functionalize biosensors’ surface, the high selectivity and affinity to targets make antibodies a sensing material to serve this purpose. Antibodies have regions known as antigen-binding sites, which have a selective affinity to specific molecules, and through which the antibody recognises and binds to its target molecule.

The process of immobilising antibodies onto the sensor surface is complicated, and with this aim the Photochemical Immobilization Technique (PIT) has been developed as a functionalization method able to tether antibodies (Abs) on metal surfaces (such as gold or other bio-compatible metals) in a proper orientation that is with their binding sites well exposed to the environment. This strategy is based on the selective photochemical reduction of disulfide bridges in immunoglobulins (Ig) produced by UV activation of near aromatic amino acid. Briefly, PIT is based on the selective photoreduction of disulphide bridges produced by the UV activation of the trp/cys-cys by means of a Trylight lamp. The UV photon energy is adsorbed by tryptophan and transferred to near electrophilic species like the close cys-cys resulting in the cleavage of the disulphide bridge and in the formation of new reduced thiol (SH) groups able to bind. Considering that the triad of residues trp/cys-cys can be found in every Ig, the PIT is applicable in a wide range of fields. 

In this context, PROMETE together with Procom – a small company with expertise in UV lamps – designed and patented Trylight


an easy-to-use tool for carrying out PIT as an effective way to tether antibodies on any thiol-reactive surface thus, the majority of the immunosensing platforms can take advantage of it: SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance), QCM (Quartz Crystal Microbalance), Magnetoelastic Sensor, Gold nanoparticles, MEF (Metal Enhanced Fluorescence) Impedance Sensors.

Since its introduction onto the market Trylight is experiencing a remarkable commercial success with some dozen of products that have been sold all over the world to private and public entities.
