Our microbiologists take advantage of the great diversity of microorganisms and enzymes to develop
innovative ways to produce biomolecules. Using liquid and solid-state fermentation processes, our microbiologists
convert agro-resources and biorefineries by-products into platform chemicals.
Our biotechnology lab is composed of a set of 1L fermentors, a set of 5L fermentors and one 20L fermentor for liquid state fermentation. It also includes solid-state fermentation facilities such as a non-stirred thermostated chambers and a halogene moisture analyser. To completed this lab, URD ABI has a molecular biology lab with quantitative PCR, electrophoresis, electroporation, gel dock and Actastart. Finally, Biotechnology platform has a set of equipments dedicated to cellular studies: flow cytometry analyser and microplates readers enable us to perform high-throughput screening
