Food Safety and Environmental Testing

Nutritional Sciences - General Context

Our laboratory also offers specific services for nutritional sciences. We understand the growing importance of nutritional sciences in the food industry and the challenges associated with evaluating their effectiveness, quality, and toxicity. Therefore, we provide specific services with a focus on the following areas :

Evaluation of the effectiveness and toxicity of bioactive compounds

We use human primary cell models to assess the effectiveness of bioactive compounds derived from plants. These models accurately reflect human biology, surpassing the limitations of cell lines. By using functional classifiers and analyzing gene expression, we gain a deep understanding of the effects of new bioactive compounds. Additionally, mass spectrometry provides crucial information on the distribution and metabolism of the compounds. This integrated approach, combined with robust datasets, accelerates the discovery and development of safe and effective bioactive compounds.

Gut microbiota

In addition to evaluating biological functions, CellMade recognizes the crucial role of the gut microbiota in human health and nutrition. The gut microbiota, a complex community of microorganisms residing in the gastrointestinal tract, plays a significant role in various physiological processes, including nutrient metabolism and immune system regulation. High-throughput sequencing (NGS) enables efficient sequencing of microbial DNA, providing a detailed understanding of the composition and diversity of the gut microbiota. By using NGS, CellMade can identify and quantify different microbial species present in the intestine, allowing researchers to study the impact of nutritional compounds on the composition and function of the gut microbiota. The integration of NGS into CellMade's services for nutritional sciences offers a comprehensive approach to understanding the complex relationship between food compounds and the gut microbiota.
