The laboratory conducts research in the manufacture of innovative electronic and photonic circuits and silicon devices, integrated circuits, sensors, microfluidic devices, and MOEMS / NOEMS systems. Since its inception, it has been continuously involved in European and national research projects, provides high-tech services at national and European level, and supports start-ups.

The Immunoassays - Immunosensors Laboratory is one of the laboratories of IPRETEA of NCSR "Demokritos". The laboratory conducts research in the fields of preparation and characterization of immune reagents and antibodies, development of immunosensors and DNA sensors, chemical and biological activation of surfaces and characterization of bioactivated surfaces. It has participated in a significant number of projects funded by the EU, the GSRT and the IAEA.

The Laboratory of Microbiology and Food Biotechnology of the Agricultural University of Athens was founded in 1994. The laboratory serves educational, and research needs in the following disciplines: microorganisms that appear or are used in food industries (pathogenic and non-pathogenic), applications of biotechnological methods for the development of new food production techniques, high value-added products and utilization of by-products of the food industry.

PRAXI network provides technology transfer services to small and medium enterprises and research laboratories throughout the country. It is an organic unit of the Institute of Technology and Research. It is a member of the European business support network and coordinator of the Greek network of the same name. It has the role of the National Contact Point for the Framework Programs for Research and Technological Development and Horizon 2020.
