June 27, 2017

Biocodex announced the launch of two international programs focused on research and awareness of gut microbiota: the Biocodex Microbiota Institute and Biocodex Microbiota Foundation, according to a press release.

“We have been committed to providing top-quality research and product for decades, and these new initiatives solidify our promise to consumers and healthcare professionals,” Jean-Marie Lefèvre, president of Biocodex, said in the press release. “Microorganisms and microbiota shouldn't be polluted, they must be cultivated and protected with a focus not only on repairing, but also on preventing potential diseases. We are keen to satisfy worldwide regulations in each country we work with and continue our commitment to furthering research and are very excited for the future findings.”
