May 17, 2013 - MicroDish BV receives subsidy to test the Biochamber at the Station Biologique de Roscoff
Microdish BV will perform several tests at the marine “Station Biologique de Roscoff”, France, subsidized by the EU (FP7) program ASSEMBLE. The aim is to test a new workflow for the in situ enrichment of novel marine microorganisms using the newly developed MicroDish Biochamber.
For further information, please contact Dr. Colin Ingham or Dr. Zalan Szabo.
April 23, 2013 - MicroDish BV and the Fungal Biodiversity Centre engage in research collaboration
MicroDish BV and the Fungal Biodiversity Centre (CBS) agree on a research collaboration to identify auxotrophic fungi.
This collaboration is aimed to join the expertise and knowledge of both partners. MicroDish BV will provide its high-density Culture Chips (MDCC). The CBS, having extensive knowledge of fungal taxonomy and evolution and functional aspects in general, will undertake the screening and characterization of the auxotrophic mutants.
This project represents the beginning of a fruitful partnership with respect to the application of the MDCC screening technology and the generation and screening of novel auxotrophic fungi.
Cell culture is a critical part of diagnostics, biotechnology and contributes to the quality of health and our environment. There is a strong need to develop faster, more automatable methods of growing and assaying cells.
To take the example of microbiology, the classic method of growing bacteria and fungi is the Petri dish that is hardly changed in centuries. The Petri dish was developed in an era of low throughput and is designed for skilled manual labour. We present a set of advanced disposable culture formats - just click on the movie for an idea of what we can achieve for your laboratory.
