Probiotic Analysis


What are Probiotics?

  • Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that help  support both the digestive and immune systems. Probiotic bacteria and  yeasts are referred to as "good" or "helpful" because they assist in  maintaining a healthy gut and a strong immune system 


What We Test

  • Helix Biological Laboratory performs testing on  raw and finished probiotic products to confirm the identity of specific  probiotic species and strain types in single raw product samples and  probiotic blends.  


How We Test

  • Probiotic species and strain type confirmation  testing is performed using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique  along with species and strain specific DNA markers from our extensive  library of probiotic DNA markers. 

Who We Test For

We perform probiotic species/strain confirmatory testing for a number of probiotic companies and manufacturers that include Nature's Way, Health Wright Products and Global Health Industries.
