Services on Beneficial Microbes – Probiotics – Prebiotics – Synbiotics

Below a number of different services are listed. This is a non-complete list, and is just for illustrative purposes. If you do not happen to find what you are looking for, feel free to get in touch with me to see if that service can be provided too.

Literature search/review

Need someone to do a literature search or a literature review for you, to figure out what is the best probiotic or prebiotic for your application?

I can do that for you. It is even likely that I already have a database with the information you are looking for. If not, I can contact the authors or companies that have data on your beneficial microbe of prebiotic of interest, and compile a succinct report for you.

Gap analysis for regulatory dossiers

Are you wondering whether your dossier can withstand the scrutiny of EFSA or FDA? Do you think your product could obtain FOSHU status, but you are not entirely sure?

Let me have a look at the data and see whether your dossier is complete, or needs additional info or more clinical trials. Where I do not have the experience myself, I will look for local help (e.g. in Japan or South America)

Consultancy regarding preclinical experiments and clinical trials for
pro- & prebiotics

Wondering whether your probiotic strain survives gastrointestinal passage? Need help on increasing that survival? Do you think your strain may have immunomodulatory activity? Do you have a substrate that you believe may be prebiotic, but you need data to substantiate this?

I can provide you with advice on what experiments to undertake to show the benefit of your product. With 20 years of experience in this field, I can point you in the right direction.

Let me find your best research partner!

Wondering which in vitro model is best? Or which animal model best predicts the efficacy of your product in man? Need to study your product mechanistically?

Let me help you find the best research partner that is likely to excel in predictive preclinical experiments or performs superb clincial trials. Due to my own years of experience with research in this area, and my initiatives on the Beneficial Microbes journal and the Beneficial Microbes Conference, I have an extensive network, that I will put at your disposal.
