Foodomics infrastructure

Foodomics is related to metabolomics , proteomics and transcriptomics concepts.

Largest mass spectrometry site

RIKILT is the largest mass spectrometry site in The Netherlands and the primary government lab for food analysis. The latest instruments are therefore available for foodomics applications.

Different instruments and different vendors

Key to successful implementation of foodomics are software solutions which are generically applicable to data from entirely different instruments and from different vendors. All modules within our unique foodomics software solution suite fulfill that requirement.
