The Green Tech Platform is gathering the equipment and expertise developed at LIST in analytical chemistry, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, with a special focus on environmental and plant samples. The platform can perform a range of analytical services and relies on its instrumentation, infrastructure and know-how to offer “à la carte” analyses. The nature of investigated samples is very diverse, including water, soil, plants, microorganisms, cell lines, animal tissues, to name a few. Although the equipment is managed at the platform level, for several activities the expertise is not provided by the platform personnel but can be found in the department for further collaborations.
LIST's partners belong to public and private sectors: universities, research centres, food and feed industries, pharmaceutical companies, water agencies, municipalities.
