InnoTech Alberta has a CFIA and Health Canada license for our plant pathogen and CL2 laboratory. We have a large culture collection of many plant pathogens from agricultural and greenhouse crops as well as many types of cultures commonly used in industrial hygiene testing. In this lab we are able to conduct:
InnoTech Alberta’s molecular biology laboratory studies DNA and RNA of plants, pathogens, soil, water and other organisms; to understand the genetics and microbial community profiles at play, and to develop and assess effective new products. We have a suite of highly specialized systems to choose from:
This laboratory analyzes plants and samples for mycotoxins (secondary metabolites of fungi) for several purposes: fungal species evolution research, crop cultivar development for resistance to mycotoxin producers, and food and feed safety.
We can conduct fungal and bacterial metabolite preparative, research as well as development services including fermentation and purification of mycotoxins, the identification/quantitation of secondary metabolites of plants and microbes (includes cannabinoids and other secondary metabolites of Cannabis sativa), and the development of analytic methods for plant and microbial metabolites.Agricultural materials & plant evaluations services
