Food Innovation Cluster

     

          To enhance the competitiveness of the food industry in this fast changing of food product and consumer behavior, science, technology and innovation are crucial. And in order to drive to cost saving and value-added, we also create network through the value chain of agriculture and food industry, fastening expertise and capability among manufacturers, research institutes, private and government supporting organisations, as well as entrepreneur in the related industries. TSP, as a “Research Estate for Private Sector” , is a unique hub for public and private R&D institutes where food innovation service alliances are located:

Food Lab

Food-related research units of NSTDA: are as followed
 

1. Food and Feed Innovation Center

          Focuses on research and development of food, with a special emphasis on using biotechnology to improve food quality to increase the value of commercial products as well as to make process improvements. The Unit aims to be a solution provider to the food industry. The Center has developed close linkages with overseas organizations for technology sourcing and adjust to suit to Thai entrepreneur requirements. To strengthen R&D personnel capabilities and skills, the center also offer range of service such as consultation service, technical service, equipment rental service, and training service. The Center also build a valuable knowledge based of quantitative risk analysis to set food safety criteria throughout the supply chain.

 

2. BIOTEC Bioprocessing Facilities

        BIOTEC infrastructure to support technology transfer of metabolites production process and valuable bio-products to related industries, to support microbial-related and Genetically Modified Microorganism(GMM) research.

 

3. Biosensing Technology Unit

        The Unit integrates emerging technology platforms to develop novel biodiagnostics for the needs of Thailand. The technology platforms that have been established include develop multiplex detection method for food safety and analyse food quality by applying microarray technology in combination with target-specific antibodies, develop biomarkers testing kit, and infectious diseases contamination for food safety and market competitiveness. (metabolites) The Unit also develop metabolites diagnostic process, food product quality test by analysing metabolite substance, develop production process that can preserve food nutrition, nutrient identification, and biomarker level diagnosis. (metabolites

        For agricultural industry research, the unit focus to answer the actual need of aquatic animal farming and economic crops for example antibody array system for simultaneous multiple detections of foodborne or plant pathogens; DNA microarray for various applications including lactic acid bacteria identification and shrimp reproduction maturation study; identification of intestinal bacteria in shrimp using pyrosequencing technology; development of DNA diagnostic techniques using loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) to detect pathogens of aquatic animals.

 

4. Cassava and Starch Technology Research Laboratory

        Joint research laboratory between BIOTEC and Kasetsart University to R&D in cassava and starch-related technology to strengthen Thailand capability both public and private sectors. The laboratory focus on characterization of cassava and starch properties which provides a better insight into the correlation between the structural and functional properties of starch, which in turn is vital for developments in its modification and application; improve the efficiency of starch processing, both in terms of technology and in terms of quality upgrades; improve and alter the properties of cassava starch through a range of modification techniques, whether physical, chemical or biotechnological.

 

5. Biodiversity and Biotechnological Resource Unit

        Focus on R&D in biodiversity of Thailand, promote biological resources utilisation and technology transfer. Promote the fundamental research of the biology of plants and microbes (fungi, bacteria and actinomycetes) present in the forest and agricultural ecosystems. Systems Microbiology (SysMicrobe) Program aims to integrate seamlessly knowledge from computational and experimental methodologies in order to elucidate the complex and dynamic interactions within the microbial cell as a whole. The unit expertise for strain engineering, bioinformatics and bioprocess development, this program is putting particular focus on interdisciplinary research dedicated to advancing the development of microbial systems. The Unit gives special emphasis to the utilization of biotechnology as a core technology to increase the value of commercial products, such as food and feed, enzyme products, drug and bioactive compounds and biocontrol agents. BIOTEC had set up

Thailand Bioresource Research Center, TBRChttp://www.tbrcnetwork.org/to preserve, provide and facilitate the coordination of exchange of biological information and resources and develop mechanisms enabled by information technologies to broaden access to biomaterials to the public and scientific community.

 

6. Polymer Physic Laboratory

        Specialise on Rheological and Mechanical Studies in Food Development includes the development of novel organic materials for optical and electronic applications, luminescent materials for anti-counterfeiting, stimuli-responsive viscoelastic materials, and food texture modifiers. It also provide technical and testing services in the field of rheology via 'rheology laboratory'.

 

7. Plastic Technology Lab

         this Laboratory conducts research and development as well as technical services, using skill and expertise of its staff coupled with appropriate application of modern technologies. Cutting edge equipment and fundamental analysis tools are the basis for building up knowledge and skill on the development of materials and technologies to better suit the needs of the end users. The capacity and activities conducted in this Laboratory are comprised of Plastic Development, Design and Production Group; Plastic Mixing and Compounding Group; Plastic Film Technology for Packaging and Industries Group.
