Chronoscreen™is a testing solution for whole extracts that allows us to confidently select the best ingredients from the best source to further enhance development in consumer health products.
Chronoscreen™ uncovers an ingredient's potential.
What is Chronoscreen™?
Chronoscreen™ has already attracted high interest in the nutraceutical, cosmeceutical and functional food and beverage industries.
Sibelius Natural Products has already tested more than 750 natural ingredients and products.
The Platform to decode active ingredients
The Chronoscreen™ platform allows Sibelius to assess different ingredients and sources for biological activity and health span using a well characterised model for biomedical research.
How does it work?
Chronoscreen™ utilizes the roundworm, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), a whole organism model with many physiological similarities to humans including a digestive and nervous system. Chronoscreen™ measures the lifespan in populations of C. elegans and their responses to different nutraceutical ingredients.
Striving to assist human health
Given the strong correlation of the pathways of cellular ageing between animal species, our premise is that these ingredients should also have beneficial effects on human health.
Why use Chronoscreen™?
Chronoscreen™ is the solution to provide strong pre-clinical data that bridges the gap between fundamental research and clinical studies. Through the results discovered by the Chronoscreen™ testing platform, researchers are able to manage risk before committing to clinical trials.
The Chronoscreen™ platform allows companies to expedite strong and credible structure-function claims in the food, nutraceuticals and cosmeceutical industries. It gives companies a way to market functional ingredients with a reliable, rapid and inexpensive model for identifying metabolic targets.
