In this business area, investigations focus on the uptake and metabolism of chemicals in crops and farm animals.
A wide range of crops representing different climatic regions is available for single or rotational crop studies. Further to the classic livestock studies with poultry or ruminants according to OECD 503 we also offer metabolism and feeding studies in fish.
For the detection and identification of unknown metabolites via radiolabeling (14C), high-resolution LC-MS/MS and LC-SPE/NMR according to GLP and 14C food processing (“radio kitchen”) are available.
Instrumental biochemical and chemical special analytics to investigate food and feed as well as the services of the Fraunhofer Food Chain Management Alliance complement the service profile.
