Regarding food, water, beverages and agricultural cropland, the increasing world population is one of the biggest challenges of mankind. How can access be provided to sufficient and safe food as well as clean water? How can crop failure be prevented? Can new food sources be explored?

Multiplex screening of sulphonamides, trimethoprim and dapsone from a single sample over a range of matrices with a single analytical platform. 


 Biochip Array Technology (BAT) enables simultaneous determination of multiple analytes from a single sample. The technology works by multiple immunoassays taking place at the same time in discrete test sites on the biochip surface 

Multiplex screening of a broad range of mycotoxins from a single sample of  animal feed with detection values complying with regulatory limits.
