SALSA Platform

General overview:

The SALSA platform (Synthesis and Analysis for the Health, Agronomy and well-being) is a combination of three existing platforms at ICOA:

  • Synthesis platform + NMR service
  • Analytical Techniques Platform (PTA)
  • HRMS Platform FR 2708




Thus, the SALSA responds specifically, on a single site, to the needs of internal and external users, both academic and industrial.


It offers numerous possibilities for quality services using a variety of resources, cutting-edge technologies and original methods of organic synthesis and analytical chemistry through capacities in separative techniques, spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, in the field of life and more particularly in health, agronomy and well-being.
