The Analytical laboratory of biomolecular and environmental systems aims to study complex systems composed of organic and inorganic elements at the macroscopic and microscopic level, which is of particular importance for understanding the functioning of environmental systems. The available infrastructure is a synergistic combination of commercially available state-of-the-art equipment and custom-designed tools. The infrastructure-network available at the University of Pannonia Faculty of Engineering provides the opportunity to achieve outstanding scientific results and a significant competitive advantage for industrial clients. Main application areas as follows:
The research infrastructure is operated by highly qualified staff with specialized knowledge and valuable experience within the University, while resources are also available to external parties through academic or industrial collaborations. The University's Centre for Knowledge and Technology Transfer provides the appropriate support for the rapid and efficient development of academic collaborations, joint grant applications and industrial cooperation.
The Analytical laboratory of biomolecular and environmental systems provides its partners with the following tools, databases and information systems to achieve its aims: Capillary electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detector (Sciex PA800+), GU database and software (GUcal), LC-MS (Agilent 1290 Infinity, Shimadzu LCMS-2020, Sciex ExionLC Triple Quad 3500), CD spectrophotometer (Jasco), isothermal titration calorimeter (Malvern), scanning electron microscope (FEI), transmission electron microscope (TF Talos F200X), GC-MS (Agilent), flow cytometer (Beckman-Coulter), light microscope (Zeiss Axio Vert A1), custom-made photosynthetron and chemostat, climate chamber (Smart Pro KK-1200), gas analyzer (TESTO 350), custom-made pilot and lab scale membrane bio-reactor, and pilot optical waste sorting machine.
The main services provided by the laboratory include glycan and glycoprotein analysis, recombinant protein technology and related analytical background, comprehensive chemistry of atmospheric fine aerosols, complete algal research, environmental mineralogy, as well as solid and wastewater related analytical activities.
