Institute of Bio- and Geosciences

Navigation and service


The group runs the IBG-2 metabolomics platform, currently the institute is equipped with

  • a LECO GC-TOF,
  • an Agilent GC-quad,
  • an Agilent LC-triple Quad, and
  • a Dionex HPAEC-PAD for sugar measurements.

These are mainly used for targeted analysis of sugars, nucleotide sugars, pigments, secondary metabolites etc. However also untargeted profiling can be performed by the GC-TOF.
In the case of cell walls the IBG-2 also has a confocal microscope to evaluate antibody stains for cell wall epitopes and (will soon have) a large scale sample preparation robot.
