IsoLife – Stable Isotope Labelled Plant Products for the Life Sciences

R&D Projects

Directly from the start of IsoLife, we have invested and are investing much efforts in the development of new applications with uniformly (>97 atom%) labelled whole plant or plant components. Together with many enthousiastic partners we have performed and are still performing many R&D projects to promote the use of 13C-labelled plants materials for different purposes.
