Traditionally, toxicological studies have relied on a variety of animal models, which are costly, time-consuming, and complex, but C. elegans, with its small size, short life cycle, well-defined genome, ease of culture and high reproductive efficiency, has been used in a wide range of fields including developmental biology, ageing and neurobiology since it was first developed as a model animal in 1965. The C. elegans food avoidance Assay can be used in response to a variety of chemicals, including toxins, repellents, lures, pheromones and other different types of food sources, to reveal the underlying chemosensory and neural mechanisms involved, and is a valuable technique in C. elegans research, covering toxicology, drug discovery, sensory perception, genetic studies C. elegans is a valuable technique in toxicology, drug discovery, sensory perception, genetic studies, environmental biology and ageing studies. With a wealth of experience and analytical methods CD BioSciences is confident that we can provide you with a high-quality, cost-effective C. elegans food avoidance analysis service.
A commonly used experimental technique, the C. elegans food avoidance assay is used to study the feeding behavior and sensory responses of C. elegans. C. elegans are placed in agar plates in a suitable agar medium supplemented with different foods or chemicals and their behavioral responses are observed, in particular to test their ability to avoid harmful substances. applications of the C. elegans food avoidance assay are as follows:
