It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed. – Charles Darwin

Nutraceutical products bioactivity characterization

A range of diverse nutraceutical products are freely available for bioactivity characterization, within an INPST collaboration aiming the preparation of joint scientific publications. Further information and a list of the available nutraceutical products can be obtained from [email protected]

INPST sample-to-bioactivity (S2B) exchange program

INPST members possess unique collections of isolated natural compounds, crude extracts, and dietary supplements, which are available for in vitro and in vivo bioactivity evaluation. A broad range of pharmacological models and techniques (in silico, in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo) are also available at the laboratories of diverse INPST members. In order to initiate a collaborative work (aiming joint scientific publications and/or joint patent applications) please contact [email protected] with information what kind of samples or bioactivity tests you would like to potentially offer for inclusion in the INPST samples-to-bioactivities exchange program.
