General Information
Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology of
ASM – organization in scientific and innovation
sphere – was founded as a result of the Decision of
the Government of the Republic of Moldova nr.
1326 dated the 14.12.2005, through the fusion of
the following academic institutes: Institute of
Microbiology created in 1992 on basis of
Microbiology Section, that started to work in 1959
– the sole scientific institution in Moldova in the
field of general and industrial microbiology and
National Collection of Nonpathogenic
Microorganisms, founded in 2003 according to the
Decision of the Government of the Republic of
Moldova as a research institution, as well as
information and coordination in the area of
storage, keeping and utilization of microbial
Scientific Centre of Patobiology and Pathology of
ASM founded in 1991 according to the Decision of
the Presidium of ASM with the purpose of
integration and orientation of the principal
fundamental-applicative research directions in the
area of the patobiology and clinical pathology.
Institute’s Focus
The objectives of the IMB:
ü The improvement of physiological and
biochemical potential of microorganisms as
sources for products used in agriculture, food
industry, preservation of the environment,
medicine (hepatoprotectors, imunomodulators,
antiatherosclerosis preparations);
ü Scientific argumentation of agricultural
biotechnologies for vegetal protein obtaining and
improvement of soil fertility;
ü The elaboration of biotechnologies for
microorganisms potential using for improvement
of soil and water quality, biological degradation of
ü The elaboration of the advantaged
biotechnologies for microbiological preparations
ü The elaboration of biotechnological
methods of water, air and soil quality monitoring;
ü The elaboration of proceedings for optimal
keeping and storage of strains microorganisms in
accordance with international standards.
