Nutritional Developmental Studies
MLM Medical Labs Expertise
Our experienced pet nutrition researchers are here to support scientists and other experts in animal health/nutrition who are seeking to improve quality of life of our animals at every stage of development. Standard and customizable analyses are performed in purpose-designed CLIA-certified and GLP-compliant laboratories by our Ph.D. level scientists and subject matter experts. Our strong collaboration with industry clients achieves our mutual goals for food product quality improvement and, ultimately, the well-being of companion and farm animals.
- biomarker assessments
- flow cytometry analysis
MLM offers testing to verify the origin of protein sources for food products. We conduct species identification as a quantitative measurement of the DNA present in a sampling of raw material that can assure the product is as requested and priced.
Microbial Nucleic Acid Testing
Microbial nucleic acid testing is useful for either identification of the gut microbiome population or the individual species level. In addition, these assays are used to monitor gut bacterial populations in response to diet or inclusion of probiotics in food.
mRNA expression assays are performed to monitor changes in response to therapy or diet. Additionally, we use the regulation mRNA expression to assess disease onset, analyze immune function and track therapeutic efficacy. This technology can be applied to non-invasive specimen types such as blood and urine, allowing temporal measurement of the selected genes.
Additional Assay Targets
Depending upon your specific needs, we offer assays for infectious diseases and gene specific targets that can be implemented on a project-by-project basis. For example, the measurement of Lactobacillus in the gut and altered expression of mRNA of cytokines and total protein of the cytokines.
