Metabolon's comprehensive biochemical profiling platform has been applied to
a number of consumer products. Clients have used the platform as part of their product
Skin Care. By analyzing skin samples, the biochemistry
of skin cells can be monitored in response to different skin care products used
over time. The use of our platform to test changes is becoming more popular as animal
testing of cosmetics becomes more restricted.
Nutritional Supplements. Supplements affect one's
biochemical profile. By profiling all of the biochemical changes resulting from
a nutritional supplement, clients can see if their products are having their intended
Toothpaste. By analyzing the crevicular fluid, fluid
between the tooth and gum, a profile of a person's oral hygiene can be obtained.
Changes in oral hygiene in response to different toothpaste formulations allows
rapid product development cycles.
Pet Food. Age-and health-specific formulations of
pet foods are being developed for companion pets. The biochemical profile of pets
consuming these formulations shows the beneficial effects of the diet.
