Bart Tienpont

After obtaining his Master’s degrees in Biochemistry and Bioscience Engineering, he completed his PhD in Chemistry. Since then he has worked as a project and product manager at the Research Institute for Chromatography. Bart has a large variety of technical and scientific interests and he managed to work with very diverse industries to set up innovative techniques. He is also the inventor of the patented and commercialised ‘PyroVial’, a microvial permitting pyrolysis and high temperatures reactions for degradation studies.

In his free time, when he is not on his motorcycle, he plays the trumpet in a big band, a symphonic harmonic orchestra or on his attic, improvising on smooth jazz backtracks.
