Move to non-invasive day-to-day monitoring of Gut Health
The assay is set up to be used on field samples in standard lab facilities.
Our Florates Gut Health Indicator reflects the overall villus-crypt ratio in the animal gut e.g for broilers and swine.
The gut health of animals is widely recognized to have a large impact on day-to-day animal health and welfare. Our molecular assays help you to unchain the value of the animal Gut Health.
All assays are based on our proprietary molecular system: robust identification of targeted shifts in biological ratios.
From its start, Florates aimed to design and validate a molecular diagnostic system that is focusing on shifts in microbial communities as a supplementary tool to eg. PCR or sequencing, for daytoday use. With their experience in both veterinary and IVD diagnostics as well as the expertise in animal farming Florates has the capability to provide new insights in Gut Health with non-invasive sampling. Sampling can be performed by the farmer and can be sent to the local lab, for swift and reliable results.
The Florates assays are based on a proprietary Ligation-based Quantitative Real Time PCR. Each component of the system as well as its assays are completely designed for the robust detection of shifts in ratios in complex biological systems such as the Gut Health and the Gut Microbiome.
So is, as an example, the extraction of the sample is based on the majority of the sample to minimize the inhomogeneity of normal field samples.
All assays make use of the same assay components and protocol, such as buffers and enzymes which are optimized & validated for ratios: making results predictable and reliable.
Identifying ratios in 1 assay is crucial for robust results, to correct for any variations in PCR, sample size & consistency.
