List of Equipment

The laboratory of Food Chemistry has facilities for large, semi-industrial scale chromatography of polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, proteins and  peptides, phytonutreints and lipids. In addition, various analytical equipment like CE, HPLC, UPLC, GC, MALDI-TOF-MS, ESI-MS, DSC, and FT-IR are available. Next to this, NMR, CD and fluorescence facilities are shared with other laboratories. An overview is given below.
