THE SCREENING OF CELL WALL POLYSACCHARIDES COMPOSITION AND STRUCTURE IN PLANT COLLECTIONS
December 2017 – French National Institute for Agricultural Research, BIBS Platform
The French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) is celebrating its 5th successful year of automating demanding sample preparation/derivatization with Chemspeed technology!
INRA is Europe’s top agricultural research institute and the world’s number two centre for the agricultural sciences. Its scientists are working towards solutions for society’s major challenges. The Biopolymères, Biologie Structurale (BIBS platform) – of INRA, Nantes, France is part of Biopolymers Interactions Assemblies (BIA) of the characterization and development of agricultural products (CEPIA).
BIBS has been certified ISO 9001 and is recognized as a strategic platform of INRA. The Chemspeed’s SWING system is at the heart of the BIBS platform and is being used for the automation of demanding sample preparation/derivatization workflow campaigns for screening structural properties of agricultural derived biopolymers.
Sophie Le Gall of INRA states, “The Chemspeed system allows us to perform more sample preparation screening campaigns while freeing up our staff from very constraining and repetitive manipulations that require the use of highly toxic chemicals. In addition, the system eliminates analyst to analyst variation and performs highly complex chemical synthesis-like sample preparations that only highly trained staff can manage.”
