Thus, it has become increasingly important for manufacturers to have data to support the identity and viability of their product(s).

Our team of microbiologists and researchers provides probiotic testing services to:

A

Assess Viability through Precision Culture Methods

Organisms must be alive and in sufficient numbers to deliver their probiotic effects. Our precision culture methods enable us to target specific probiotic microorganisms. Thus we can determine the quantity of live and healthy individuals – or colony-forming units (CFUs) – that exist in your finished product.
A

Reveal Stability through Shelf-Life Studies

Monitor the survival of probiotic organisms throughout a product’s expected shelf-life. Labtest-usa does this by testing levels of viable probiotic organisms over time and under various storage conditions.
A

Confirm Label Claims through Species Verification

Ensure the authenticity and quality of your product by confirming the identity and quantity of claimed probiotic organisms. This can be used for the verification of label claims or suppliers. We use DNA sequencing, metagenomics, and whole-genome sequencing methods to confirm the presence of target probiotic microorganisms.

Precision Culture Methods for Probiotics

Determine if probiotic organisms in your product are alive in a sufficient concentration to provide their probiotic effects.

An organism must be alive, in sufficient concentrations, to deliver its probiotic effects. However, putting a specific volume of probiotics in your product does not guarantee the number of live probiotics in the finished product. That is because some of these organisms will not survive. With this in mind, Labtest-usa uses precision culture methods to assess the probiotic organisms’ viability in your finished product. In essence, precision culture methods reveal the number of live and healthy individuals in the product at the time of testing. In other words, it tells you the quantity of live and healthy probiotics in your finished product when it leaves your facility.

While it is essential to know the probiotic concentrations as your product leaves the facility, this is simply a snapshot in time. In reality, the microorganism populations may change over the life of your product. In order to reveal the concentration of live probiotics in your product over time, Labtest-usa offers probiotic shelf-life studies.

Probiotic Shelf-Life Studies

Probiotic shelf-life studies reveal the stability of the probiotics in your product. In other words, it tells you how well the organisms are surviving over the life of your product. In order to learn the rate at which probiotics will die off, we test the product at various intervals over time. As a result of this testing, you will know the length of time until the product no longer has a sufficient concentration of live organisms to meet product specifications. This information is important for supporting label claims as well as determining expiration and best by dates. In addition, the stability study will also provide insight into product formulation and packaging.
