Fungal Material Science

Shaping the future with Fungi Fungi are almost everywhere and have enormous potential as both sustainable final products and components in building materials. Liquid fermentation can provide fast and scalable production of paper-like materials and mono filaments for use in the textile industry. Solid-state fermentation uses the non-fruiting part of the fungus to produce leather […]

oCelloScope in dairy mold research Yoghurt is a difficult matrix to analyze. Casein in yoghurt reflects all light and makes it an impossible assay in microscopy. Today, most food companies study the growth and inhibition of molds using classical agar plates and rely on visual inspection. Analysis time ranges from 3 to 21 days depending
