What if we could measure flavour or scent with a chip? Our experts developed a microfluidic technique called receptomics. This technique measures the response of many different receptor proteins to series of extracts or pure substances in a flow cell, and predicts responses in the human body, thus reducing the need for test panels or animal experiments. The receptomics technique may also be useful for the development of personalised food and medication.
