Study of the effect of zinc oxide nanoparticles on cell migration
Kutějová, Monika ; Zumberg, Inna (referee) ; Chmelíková, Larisa (advisor)
Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) are widely used across various industries due to their properties, and with the development of nanomaterials, they are also finding applications in medicine. This bachelor’s thesis investigates the cytotoxic effects of these nanoparticles on cultured cell lines. The study focused on the human osteosarcoma cell line Saos-2 and the fibroblast cell line NIH-3T3. During in vitro experiments, the cells were exposed to different concentrations of ZnO NPs. The cytotoxicity of each concentration was assessed using the MTT assay, which provided information on cell viability. Based on the MTT assay results, appropriate concentrations of ZnO NPs were selected for conducting a Scratch assay, with the highest concentration corresponding to the determined inhibitory concentration for NIH-3T3. The cytotoxic effects were thus evaluated by studying cell migration. Subsequent statistical analysis determined the extent of cytotoxic effects of ZnO NPs depending on the concentration and cell type.

Detection of pathogens in joint infections, including total endoprostheses using the BioFire method (Biomérieux)
This bachelor thesis deals with the detection of pathogens in joint infections including total joint replacements by the BioFire method (Biomérieux, France). Compared to conventional methods, the Biofire Joint Infection Panel (BioMérieux, France) offers simultaneous detection of up to 39 pathogens and antimicrobial resistance markers in about one hour of time.This method is a multiplex PCR system for rapid and comprehensive testing. It is an innovative method that, thanks to its speed and comprehensiveness, will allow clinical microbiologists and physicians to make timely decisions on appropriate antibiotic therapy. Early de-escalation of this antibiotic therapy will also be enabled through the timely and targeted deployment of the appropriate ATB. The theoretical part of the thesis discusses the major infections of joints and joint replacements, introduces the reader to the most important causative agents of these infections, and a section is also devoted to microbiological diagnosis. The practical part describes the classical multiplex PCR, the FilmArray multiplex PCR system and with it the BioFire Joint Infection Panel, which has been used in the analysis of synovial fluid in patients with suspected septic arthritis or periprosthetic infection. Data from the analysis are also evaluated in the practical part. The data are from March 2021 to June 2022 and are presented in the practical part in the form of tables and graphs. The conclusion of the paper summarizes the relevance of the method for routine diagnosis and answers the stated research questions.

Study of 3D bacterial cellulose production using banana peels as a carbon source
Netopilík, Tibor ; Pernicová, Iva (referee) ; Kovalčík, Adriána (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the study of 3D bacterial cellulose production using Komagataeibacter xylinus using banana peels as a carbon source. The theoretical part deals with the comparison of the properties of bacterial cellulose and plant cellulose, different methods of biotechnological production of bacterial cellulose and its use. The aim of the bachelor thesis was to find out whether it is possible to use banana peel as a carbon source for biotechnological production of bacterial cellulose. Banana peels are waste lignocellulosic material produced, for example, in the production of snacks or fruit or dairy beverages in the food industry. HPLC analysis showed that 1 l of hydrolyzate after enzymatic hydrolysis of 100 g of dry banana peels per 1 l of water contained 8.86 g of glucose and 10.46 g of fructose. The hydrolyzate was used as a carbon source for static and dynamic cultivation of Komagataeibacter xylinus. The yields of bacterial cellulose produced by using banana peels or glucose were compared. The use of banana peels hydrolyzate increased the yields of bacterial cellulose about 170 % in the case of static cultivation and about 220 % in the case of dynamic cultivation. Scanning electron micrographs of bacterial cellulose confirmed the morphological differences between bacterial cellulose produced statically and dynamically. Moreover, the morphology of bacterial cellulose was influenced by the kind of used carbon source.

Holub, Jiří ; Mikulíková, Renata (referee) ; Márová, Ivana (advisor)
The master thesis addresses the issue of cultivation of selected strains of carotenogenic yeasts on waste materials of the food industry using a laboratory bioreactor. Carotenogenic yeasts are able to produce highly valuable metabolites during cultivation, which are located predominantly in the lipid part of the cells. Particularly, they are carotenoids, ergosterol, coenzyme Q and fatty acids. The thesis is divided into two main parts, the theoretical part and the practical part. The theoretical part describes individual yeast strains, types of waste materials, produced metabolites and methods of their analysis. The experimental part deals with the processing of waste materials of the food industry, specifically animal fat, whey and spent coffee grounds into the form of substrates usable as nutrition sources for yeast cultivation. Furthermore, cultivations focused on the recovery of the monitored metabolites and their analysis by using HPLC/PDA and GC/FID assemblies were studied as well. The yeast strains Rhodotorula mucilaginosa (CCY 19-4-6), Rhodotorula kratochvilae (CCY 20-2-26), Rhodosporidium toruloides (CCY 062-002-001), Sporidiobolus pararoseus (CCY 19-9-6) a Cystofilobasidium macerans (CCY 10-1-2) were used in this work. As one of the best producing strains Sporidiobolus pararoseus (CCY 19-9-6) was found, which achieved very high productions of carotenoids, coenzyme Q and ergosterol.
