Fermentation laboratory at SINTEF
SINTEF has a nationally leading research laboratory for development of microbial and cell based production processes. The laboratory has robotic equipment for miniaturized cultivation, large capacity incubators for shake flasks, laboratory fermentors (1-3 L) equipped for extensive process control and monitoring, and a pilot plant with two fermenters (50 and 300 L) for scale-up studies and small productions.
High throughput screening facility, Trondheim
The robotic screening facility at SINTEF are optimized for high throughput analytical and cultivation work and enables us to process of thousands of samples or cultures per day.
Mass spectrometry - Advanced research-based analyses
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
Re-FOOD is an international partnership for research and education in energy efficient resource utilization in FOOD value chains between Norway and India.
ResMap – Antibiotic resistance in Norwegian poultry production; Improved knowledge by advanced HTS-based technology platforms
In the ResMap project we will perform studies that will contribute to increased understanding of bacterial antibiotic resistance in Norwegian food production, in relation to consumption of poultry risk products and impacts on human health.
Mar3Bio – Biorefinery and biotechnological exploitation of marine biomasses
The marine biomasses used in Mar3Bio are brown algae and crustacean byproducts which are sources of the marine polysaccharides alginate and chitosan. These abundant but underexploited renewable biomasses have great potential for production of high value biomolecules.
Towards a bioeconomic future
Can our forests, seaweed, grass and fisheries waste be transformed into new and valuable raw materials? Researchers are asking 1500 Norwegian companies what they're currently doing with their resources, and what they see themselves doing in 2030.
Bacteria from the sea join the fight against cancer and infections
Norwegian scientists are opening the gates of nature’s secret medicine factories, with the aim of giving us new weapons against cancers and resistant bacteria.
Combating multi-resistant bacteria with nanotechnology
This week, research scientists from eight countries are meeting in Trondheim to discuss the next steps in the campaign against antibiotic resistance. Researchers are currently developing novel drugs against multi-resistant bacteria in order to make more effective treatments available to tuberculosis and staphylococcus aureus patients.
