“Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity” (WHO).

One of the essential elements involved in our health improvement is the nutrition. The search for a well-balanced diet, containing the suitable proportions of each basic nutrient, is necessary to enhance our well-being.

Regular consumption of a functional food (conventional food) displays have physiological benefits and the possibility to reduce the risk of diseases, beyond basic functions of nutrition, that is, may contain bioactive compounds.

 

TYPE OF ASSAYS:

Probiotics

Probiotics positively modulate the gut bacterial flora, and there is a clear evidence that host microbiota can modify host nutrient metabolism and energy balance in zebrafish.

Toxicity and Safety Assays. Analysis of genes expression involved in immune system.

Prebiotics

Prebiotics provide a wide range of health benefits nourishing the good bacteria that everyone already has in the gut.

Through our technology, we can test and prove the increase number of healthy bacteria in the gut supplementing our regular diet with novel prebiotics.

Toxicity and Safety Assays. Analysis of genes expression involved in immune system.

Nutraceuticals

Nutraceuticals are dietary ingredients, natural or synthetic compounds and the intake offers health benefits.

Several biochemical assays are being developed in zebrafish model that demonstrate the potential health benefit of the nutraceuticals, testing their toxicity and safety.

Toxicity and Safety Assays. Analysis of genes expression involved in immune system.
