Alexandros is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.
Summary of the experiences and competences of Alexandros
I lead a research group that is focused on the development of novel antimicrobial strategies against different microorganisms, including ones that can cause corrosion.
The main characteristics of these novel antimicrobial technologies are sustainability, low operational/application cost and that they can be applied in a variety of different settings. One of the most promising technologies we have developed and has proven effective against MIC is cold atmospheric plasma (gaseous and liquid mode).
Our aim is to translate our experimental results to real life applications that are useful to industry, public authorities and consumers.
Looking for help? Alexandros can help you with the following items
I can offer the following:
1. Expertise in determining the effectiveness of antimicrobial strategies on corrosion causing microorganisms.
2. Access to Laboratory/Microbiological facilities and expertise in determining the antimicrobioal mechanism of novel antimicrobial technologies/methods.
3. Access to Equipment/methods: e.g. advanced microscopy (e.g. SEM, TEM, Confocal microscopy, Fluorescence Microscopy), flow cytometry, RT-PCR, variety of biochemical assays.
4. Access to identified novel antimicrobial agents from natural sources with high activity against corrosion causing bacteria.
5. Development of novel bespoke delivery vehicles for novel antimicrobial agents, to increase efficiency and protection from degradation.
6. Development and access of cold plasma technology for applications agains MIC.
