Screening test for probiotic bacteria

A probiotics screening test has been designed to efficiently identify and select Lactobacilli probiotic bacteria having a protective activity against the deleterious effect of malnutrition on juvenile growth. Using this screen, a set of robustly functional Lactobacilli isolates has been identified, that impact juvenile growth up to 38% more than currently available public strains. These novel strains represent a great potential to improve and optimize human and animal juvenile growth when confronted to an unbalanced diet (e.g. low protein diet or high sugar diet) but also in the context of a normal diet.

PULSALYS is looking for :
