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.
Smartfish NutriDrug: Efficient oral drug delivery system for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases
New solutions for orally administrated drugs are in demand by users, society and the pharmaceutical industry. The overall goal of NutriDrug is to develop a novel and efficient oral drug delivery system for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases.
BubbleCAN – Microbubbles for Ultrasound-Mediated Cancer Treatment
BubbleCAN addresses the optimization of a product for the delivery of very high local concentrations of drugs to tumors using non-invasive focused ultrasound. The product is based on SINTEF owned technology platforms.
SIP TER: Tailored encapsulation and release
In this project, we aim at increasing our competence and developing new polymer or hybrid capsule demonstrators using a range of techniques and materials. Nano- and microcapsules are currently of high interest in many applications where protection of ingredients is needed or a specific effect by controlled release is desired, e.g in food, lotions, bioreactors and paint.
Hoping to treat osteoarthritis using artificial cartilage tissue
A Norwegian-Swiss research team has succeeded in growing cartilage tissue cells using algae. Moreover, the new cells can reduce joint inflammation. This news gives hope for people suffering from arthrosis, also known as osteoarthritis.
Commercialising gas bubbles for cancer drug delivery
Researchers are now working to design stable micro-bubbles which, combined with ultrasound, can deliver cancer drugs straight to the target tumour.
