Probiotics are commonly defined as viable, non-pathogenic microorganisms (including bacteria and/or yeast). The health benefits of probiotics are strictly strain-specific, despite belonging to the same species distinct strains may have different effects. Therefore, accurate characterization of novel potentially probiotic strains is required, and appears to be particularly important. As excellent model organisms, C. elegans is becoming an increasingly valuable in vivo model for studying host-probiotic interactions and providing mechanistic insights into the beneficial effects of probiotics. At CD BioSciences, we utilize a combination of expertise in C. elegans research and advanced technologies to provide high-quality, cost-effective probiotic screening services.
C. elegans is an excellent model organism for studying the potential benefits of probiotic strains, providing valuable insights into host-microbe interactions, and helping to identify potential probiotics with health-promoting properties. C. elegans is an excellent model organism for probiotic screening because of the following advantages:

With its simple anatomy, short lifespan, and well-characterized genetics, C. elegans provides valuable insights into host-microbe interactions, helping researchers identify potential probiotics. At CD BioSciences, we are committed to providing cutting-edge services in C. elegans research, including probiotic screening services.
