Research and Development

With our years of experience we can help you plan new projects and carry them out from beginning to end. We focus our research and development in the following areas: 

  • Gene expression
  • Microbiology
  • Nucleic acids and extraction
  • PCR and real-time PCR
  • Species identification

 

We have  registered four patents (new analysis methods):

  • Invention and development of a sterility detection system
  • Invention and development of a detection system for undesirable germs in wine production
  • Invention and development of a detection system for small degraded DNA particles (Licensing Opportunity)
  • Invention and development of a new production system for an essential enzyme for molecular biological diagnosis. 

 

In addition we have taken part in three KTI (Kommission für Technologie und Innovation KTI) projects:

  • Development of a method for detection of pathogenic germs in meat within 24 hours
  • Production of Taq DNA polymerase produced from eukaryotic cells 
  • Development of a system for detecting and quantifying yeast and bacteria in wine
