We are RIC, your analytical partner for laboratory solutions. Headquartered in Belgium, we are a privately-owned analytical center of excellence with over 35 years of experience supporting industries and government agencies worldwide. We have been supporting industries and government agencies active in various markets with our scientific and technological know-how. Within the novel food industry, we bring in our extensive experience in sample preparation, chromatography, electrophoresis and mass spectrometry to deliver in-depth process understanding to our clients: from ingredients (e.g., detergents, antifoam), across recombinantly produced products (e.g. milk proteins) to complex cell-based cultures (e.g. lab-grown meat). Given the biological nature of the manufacturing process, recombinant proteins are prone to physicochemical modifications such as aggregation, precipitation degradation, as well as (intentional or accidental) post-translational modifications, such as oxidation, deamidation, isomerization and phosphorylation. In addition, various organic compounds that play a critical role during fermentation need to be monitored from the beginning of each production campaign (e.g. raw materials) to final product (e.g. host cell proteins). Are you looking for analytical support to handle: Method development | Compound identification and characterization| Product quantification | Comparability assessment of raw materials| Product stability testing |Root-cause investigations or other unexpected issues that are difficult to “digest”? Come find us at The Future of Protein Production LIVE in Amsterdam. Talk to our novel food fanatics Lisa and Yves at booth 18. Can’t wait until the event?
