Life science and Biotechnology companies are among the most frequent industrial users of synchrotron and neutron facilities. The techniques available allow investigation and development of tailor-made biomolecules, biomaterials and biocompatible materials for use in their novel products, e.g. drugs, Lab-on-a-chip devices, and biomechanics.

Science Link offers Life Science and Biotechnology companies in the Baltic Sea Region access to experimental techniques at the partner synchrotron and neutron facilities applicable to a range of problems including:

  • Protein structure
  • Drug characterisation and the development of novel pharmaceuticals
  • Polymorphism diffraction
  • Distribution of elements in biomaterials
  • Organic product identification and diffusion of products
  • Tomography of biomechanical components

The experimental techniques available include:

  • Protein crystallography
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy
  • X-ray and neutron powder diffraction
  • Small angle X-ray and neutron scattering
  • X-ray and neutron reflectometry
