Gut health & in vitro models

Go back
We conduct studies to identify dietary and management factors that contribute to the preservation of the digestive health and animal welfare. To do this, we use different models, both in vivo and in vitro, that allow us to model the response with particular attention to the microbiota, fermentation processes and digestive functionality.  We also have experience in the transactional use of such models in the evaluation of ingredients or additives intended for human consumption.
