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, AEMTEK 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, AEMTEK offers probiotic shelf-life studies.
