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.
Molecular biology laboratory
We have state of the art equipment for molecular biology, including an Illumina MiSeq sequencer, droplet digital PCR (ddPCR), Agilent Bioanalyzer, CHEF Mapper XA pulse field gel electrophoresis system and a Bluepippin cassette-based gel electrophoresis system for DNA and protein separation, in addition to ÄKTA FPLC equipment for protein purification. Our co-workers have several years of experience and master most topics and protocols related to genetic modification of bacteria.
Literature review: Sexual and reproductive health and rights of girls with disabilities
We carried out a literature review on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of girls with disabilities.
MICROFIBRE: Evaluating the fate, effects and mitigation measures for microplastic fibre pollution in aquatic environments
To understand the environmental behaviour and impacts of microplastic fibres (MPFs) in order to develop a decision support framework that enables garment manufacturers to make environmentally informed choices in their material selection.
GeoHealthAccess - The geography of vulnerability and health service access in southern Africa
The overall objective of the study is to develop a model which can be used to identify the most important barriers to access to health services in poor resource contexts in southern Africa. The tool combines perceived access to health services with measured, geographical access, and individual characteristics.
TB forgotten in fight against HIV
Tuberculosis seems to have fallen between the cracks in poverty-stricken Malawi’s sponsor-dependent health sector. The dominating focus on HIV may have left parts of Africa with a skewed health service, say researchers.
Mathematics as a means to stop snoring
A flag waving in the wind can illustrate what we call "air-solids interaction". When the wind hits the top of the flagpole the flag dances to the wind's rhythms, often in complex ways. And as we all know: it takes two to tango. The air-flow is also influenced by the flag's movements; the direction and speed of air-flow changes along the flag's surface. This constitutes what is known as a two-way fluid-structure interaction (FSI).
