Microbiology and molecular biology laboratory

Identification in quality and quantity terms of the materials and their microbiological characteristics.


The two laboratories with the most modern equipment are used for the following activities:

Microbiology laboratory
  • Identification of the microbiological characteristics of different types of matrices; example: identification of bacteriostactic and bactericidal activity of antibacterial textile materials – Identification of bacterial load in feathers and down – Identification of bacterial load in cosmetic products
Laboratorio di biologia molecolare
  • Check for the presence of genetically modified organisms (GMO) in organic cotton – Check of the absence/presence of animal protein residues in “vegan” products – “Omics” (Proteomics): identification of the quality and quantity composition of textiles containing mixed fine animal fibres and wool. Identification of the origin of animal fur
