Facilities and technology

We develop our own technology, but we also use technology derived from our partners. The development of technology mainly takes place as part of a larger project or consortium. The available technologies are covered by one or more of our research themes:

  1. Establishing relationships between diet and health;
  2. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics;
  3. The safety and efficacy of (natural) substances and mixtures.

We have technology at our disposal for both biological and chemical research. We have standard tools and technology for biological research on site in our laboratory, such as recombinant DNA technology, ELISA, flow cytometry, western blotting, immunofluorescence / histology, quantitative real-time PCR, a plate reader for fluorescence and luminescence, cell and bacterial culture, C. elegans laboratory. The available chemical technologies range from simple chromatography and soxhlet extraction to liquid chromatography / mass spectrometry and automated extraction.
