The Institute of Bioanalytics and Agro-Metabolomics (iBAM) of the BOKU-Department IFA-Tulln performs cutting edge scientific research focusing on the development and implementation of advanced methods in the field of (bio‑)analytical chemistry. The iBAM, together with its national and international cooperation partners, is pursuing an interdisciplinary approach for the determination of chemical contaminants, allergens and pathogens in food and environmental samples, the toxinology of fungal metabolites, as well as to study plant microbe interactions. Besides our research activities the iBAM organizes proficiency tests for water analysis and hosts parts of the core facility „Bioactive Molecules Screening & Analysis“. An integral part of our research is to share our scientific results through publications and presentations at conferences as well as by teaching and training of graduate and postgraduate students.
