Biyans Biological Products R&D

Innovations

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for elemental detection in the soil:

  • The project is at the R&D stage and was supported by the Agricultural Research and Policy General Directorate in Turkey. The aim of the project is developing portable, time-saving and cost-effective equipment for in situ measurements.

Science Education and Citizen Science Projects:

  • We design science festivals, exhibitions and workshops for science learning based on customer needs, where STEM is our fundamental approach.

Partnering Objectives

Further development of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for elemental detection in the soil based on know-now from potential partners

  • Calibration of LIBS with ICP MS, X-ray or raman spectroscopy
  • Advancement of prototype from exposure to a wide range of soil samples
  • Improvement of prototype design by integrating electronic boards

Improving our education material and approaches to learning through sharing lessons learnt.

  • We would like to improve our know-how in pedagogy and child psychology to create tailored content
  • We would also like to enhance our materials to help us reach a wide range of customers

The range of solutions possible with LIBS have the potential to open up new niches and markets around the world for us and for our partner.


Company Story

Biyans Biological Products was founded in 2009 at METU KOSGEB. We won an entrepreneurship competition with our project 'Mine Detection System with Biological Approach'. We were subsequently supported by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology. Since then we have worked on a broad range of topics, each contributing to respectful and sustainable solutions for life sciences. The dissemination of information connecting the scientific world and society is central to our mission.

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for elemental detection in the soil intends to address challenges that agriculture specialists and farmers face in determining elements in the soil with in situ measurements. It also aims to detect heavy metals on-site and pave the way for further work in food security sector. Another focus is monitoring climate change response by tracking soil elements and effects on land quality. We also envisage the usage of LIBS to detect metals in waste plants for efficient recycling and waste reduction for environmental sustainability.

Our focus on science education and citizen science stems from our vision that when more people are involved with science, more adaptive strategies can be fostered and put into practice. Science learning is an essential part of our life and a central value for Biyans.
