Microorganisms and their metabolites have diverse impact on our lives. The goal of the research facility, Bioactive Microbial Metabolites (BiMM) is to isolate new active substances from fungi and bacteria.
The purpose of the BiMM is to provide an open research platform. The BiMM provides hardware and expertise for cooperation projects and contract work. The equipment is specially adapted to perform successful searches for new bioactive metabolites and enzymes. In addition, the BiMM is equipped to analyse the chemical properties and biological function of the found substances. We provide automated pipetting using modern liquid handling robots along with other automated operations. Another focus is the characterisation of chemical bioactive substances.
