Alimetrics carries out life science research customised to the needs of each client.
Typical products tested include probiotics, prebiotics, mycotoxin binders, enzymes, phytobiotics and yeasts.
Many products marketed today function by unknown mechanisms. For the purposes of product marketing, troubleshooting and further product development, it is important to know the mode-of-action of commercial products.
PRODUCT SCREENING FOR FUNCTIONAL EFFICIENCY
Testing many product candidates, doses and combinations in the target host is often unrealistic. With our precisely designed in vitro and ex vivo models, pre-screening can be reliably carried out prior to entering in vivo trials.
EXPLORATION OF HEALTH AND DISEASE INDICATORS
There are many diseases and disorders for which the causative agents and aetiology are not known. Our top-of-the-line exploratory analytical tools can assist in finding indicators of health disorders in various hosts.
EFFICACY STUDIES FOR REGULATORY PURPOSES
Authorities require study reports proving the efficacy and safety of new products. Our scientifically valid methods and operations meet the requirements of EU authorities and can be adapted for testing a variety of product types.
CUSTOMISED ASSAY DESIGN
Companies have product-specific analytical needs for their marketing and regulatory purposes. Assays for the analysis of specific microbes, toxins and metabolites can be designed and implemented in client laboratories.
