Molecular biology

Wageningen Food Safety Research is actively involved in the latest developments in molecular biology. This includes conducting screenings and risk assessments on a large number of substances. We also develop new assessment methods.

Risk assessment and screening

Wageningen Food Safety Research has molecular biological techniques available for the risk assessment and screening of:

  • Natural substances
  • Chemical substances
  • Animal treatment products in food and feed

New methods

Molecular biological techniques are also used for developing new methods for:

  • Assessing the safety of new foodstuffs
  • Detecting genetically modified organisms
  • Detecting food pathogens
  • Detecting animal meal
