Pharmacology field

  • Evaluation platforms for natural health and pharmaceutical products:
    • In vitro and in vivo evaluation of safety as well as acute and chronic toxicity
    • Assessment of bioavailability, pharmacokinetics and toxicokinetics studies of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME)
    • In vivo evaluation of efficacy: inflammation, cancer, metabolic disorders,
      infectious diseases, etc.

  • Animal models of human pathologies: oncology (xenograft), metabolic disorders (hypercholesterolemia, diabetes, obesity and satiety), infectious disease, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation (of the skin, lungs, intestine, joints), nephrotoxicity, etc.

  • In vitro pharmacokinetic interaction (CYP-450, UGT microsomes and hepatocytes)

Chemistry field

  • Metabolomics: identification and quantification of metabolites and biomarkers in complex matrices (blood, urine, brain, vegetable extracts, etc.)
  • • Nutraceuticals, functional foods, food chemistry: measurement of antioxidant capacity (ORAC), analyses of polyphenols, flavonoids, fatty acid profiles (including omega-3, omega-6, EPA, DHA), amino acids, monosaccharides, etc.
  • Nutraceuticals, Functional Foods and Food Chemistry: Measurement of antioxidant capacity (ORAC), analysis of polyphenols and flavonoids, fatty acid profiles (including omega-3, omega-6, EPA, DHA), phytosterols, nutritional facts, analysis of organic acids, amino acids, monosaccharides, vitamins, food colorants etc.
  • Natural health products and medicinal plants: characterization and quantification of active ingredients (garlic, balsam fir, echinacea, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, Canada yew, essential oils, stevia, valerian, hops, etc.)
  • Development of specialized analytical methods

Biology sector

  • Evaluation platforms for natural, cosmeceutical, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical products:
    • Evaluation of product bioactivity in ex vivo models: human skin explants, in vitro models: inflammation, cancer, cytotoxicity, etc.
    • Analysis of immune system function: proliferative activity of lymphocytes, phagocytic activity, cytokines assay, immunoglobulins assay, gene expression measurement, etc.
    • Evaluation of cosmeceutical, and therapeutic products: formulation analysis, 3D models of human skin for in vitro evaluation of absorption, permeability, distribution, and wound healing

  • Characterization of probiotics and microflora analysis: genotyping and phenotyping
  • Bacterial and fungal cultures (containment level 2)
  • Analysis of antimicrobial capacity
  • Measurement of the genotoxicity of a product (Complete Ames Test according to OECD standards)
