Scientific Applications Development and Life Sciences Training



PETAL focuses on developing new life science applications important to the research community. Many of our projects come directly from researcher requests, or are inspired by data shared by customers. Our training facility in Charbonnières-les-bains (close to Lyon, France) is the perfect place to learn about these new protocol developments. Our scientists also offer a variety of life sciences courses that utilize hands-on laboratory activities and case study-based learning.

PETAL offers internship opportunities for post-baccalaureate students with biology experience. Application materials can be sent to petal@promega.com.

Explore our Applications work and Training courses offered below.

PETAL is a resource for developing new life science applications to facilitate important research. Our work has produced novel protocols and optimized existing protocols to enable the study of technically challenging samples or matrices. Examples of our work are highlighted below.


Application Highlight: Food Safety

PETAL scientists developed over 40 protocols to isolate nucleic acid from a wide variety of plants and food samples to streamline testing of these products for pathogens or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).


Application Highlight: Clinical and Forensic Samples

Reliable techniques for extracting and detecting nucleic acid from clinical or forensic samples are critical because the material is so limited. PETAL scientists applied Promega technologies to make these workflows more facile and yield high-quality results.
