TWBTWB offers standard and customised services, in addition to the realisation of R&D projects on its technological platforms.

Technical and support services

The TWB platforms have equipment and expertise dedicated to the acceleration of technical developments on the thematics:

  • strain engineering (vector constructing/assembling, screening and biodiversity generation and transformation of micro-organisms at low/medium throughput);
  • bioprocessing (screening, fermentation optimisation, scale-up and batch production);
  • analytics (analytical and preparative chromatography) and cytometry (sorting and analysis of microbial populations).

Services are executed by high-level scientists using high technology and massively robotized equipment, within a mutidiplisciplinary environment to ensure a smooth continuum « gene to process ».

Eight services are offered:

  • High-throughput colony picking;
  • Plasmid and strain engineering;
  • Single cell characterization and high throughput screening of microbial cells by cytometry;
  • Rapid optimization of microbial and enzymatic bioprocess;
  • Scale-up of the microbial culture process;
  • Amino acid quantitative assay;
  • Determination of the average molar mass of polymers in solution;
  • Ethics and Society.

Access to equipment

Within a specific contractual frame, companies can access TWB facilities and equipment. Agenda and operations framework are defined case by case.

Hosting teams and activities

R&D teams from industrial customers can be hosted temporarily by TWB, when resources are available. This offer is very well suited for start-up companies who have not yet fully implemented their resources. Large corporations can also benefit of this service to validate a new process and optimize their investments.

Professional training

Training sessions can be developed either inside TWB or at customers location. Depending on the needs, a training contract can be set via INSA Toulouse as academic partner.
