Nutrients and ingredients on the test-bench
The Food Chemistry Laboratory comprises the competent platform for several aspects of chemical food analyses ranging from fundamental issues and biochemistry up to protein and lipid analysis and molecular biology. It focuses on the development of appropriate analytical techniques applied to current topics in the area of food authenticity, food chemistry, nutrition science, and food technology. Furthermore, the analysis of favourable nutrients, but also harmful contaminants and residues in food is dealt with.
Modern analytical equipment constitutes the basis, also involving molecular biological and classical methods. Special emphasis is given to tools for protein analysis (electrophoresis, HPLC), lipid analysis (GC, GC-MS, TLC, HPLC) and molecular biology (PCR, RAPD-PCR, PFGE, PCR-DGGE, Real-time PCR).
