Tuberculosis outer membrane lipids (web store)

In our web store, you can find a variety of functional mycobacterium tuberculosis lipids, mainly complex fatty acids and glycolipids.

In close collaboration with the University of Groningen, we have greatly contributed to new ways of detecting and preventing tuberculosis in past years. During this process, an extensive library of tuberculosis-relevant precursors and agents have been synthesized, and a selection of these molecules is available to use for research purposes, either as is or with further modification.
