In vitro microbiome and ex vivo intestinal models for gut health

Watch the webinar where we introduce our latest developments in in vitro models for the study of gut microbiota dynamics and host intestinal tissue response.

Microbiome modulation and activity, and intestinal wall function

Gut health is a key factor in our overall health and well-being. The gut microbiome that inhabits the digestive environment of the gut lumen contributes to intestinal homeostasis. Food products, drugs, probiotics and other factors can influence the function of the gut wall and/or microbiome.

Our translational models can be used to study the impact of your product on gut microbiota and host tissue response and can help to evaluate and boost product innovation at an early stage. Our in vitro and ex vivo gut model systems provide the unique opportunity to screen different lead compounds, ingredients and solutions for specific target populations (obese, elderly, infants) and evaluate their potential to promote health.

Public Private Partnership supports intestinal health in early life

28 February 2023

Public Private Partnership Fontanelle works on the solutions that contribute to long-term effects on (gut) health through the development of an integrated approach of in vitro, ex vivo and AI models to test the potential health benefits of specialised nutrition for infants and young piglets.

Improving the health of mothers and newborns in Ghana

1 December 2021
Currently, a consortium of 10 international partners, is studying how to implement ‘Group Care’ into 7 countries. In Group Care 8-12 women and their partners meet up during pregnancy and the first 2 years after birth for medical and psycho-social care, interactive learning and community building. We just went to Ghana, to train midwives and adapt the approach to the local context.
