Biorelevant Media

Biorelevant Media simulate the fluids present in the gut before (fasted) and after (fed) eating food. They are really useful tools for predicting what will happen to your product after it’s swallowed. Their close similarity to what's actually inside your body makes them very helpful for Pharmaceutical companies (CROs, developers, generic drug manufacturers) and also the functional food, vitamin and medical device industries. There are even versions available to mimic the gastro-intestinal juices of different animals! We supply the powders which enable you to make Biorelevant Media quickly, easily and cost effectively.
