Why would I want to invest in testing for efficacy of my product?
Research shows that customers are increasingly making their purchase decisions on scientific studies conducted to determine the health benefits of the product. Showing research data to your customer conveys the message that you deeply care for them.
Why should I choose this model over mammalian testing for toxicity?
Nematodes provide high-quality safety and efficacy data. For whole-life measurements, nematodes offer unbeatable cost and time advantages. While we don't recommend to replace mammalian testing entirely, you can significantly cut the time and money spent on mammalian testing with a first round of rapid and affordable C. elegans tests.
