We propose a multidisciplinary approach due to the diversity of mechanisms that have an influence in intestinal health, being able to combine the different techniques described above depending on the situation of the farm or the information we want to collect.
Determination of the permeability and level of inflammation of the intestinal wall through the analysis of relative gene expression via qPCR of messenger RNA from intestinal epithelial cells.
Identification and quantification of culturable and non-culturable bacteria found in intestinal microbiota by:
16S rRNA gene sequencing for bacterial identification
alpha and beta diversity
detection of all present bacteria
copy No./g of feces of each taxon
% of each taxon in relation to total No. of Bacteria
graphic representation and statistical report
detection of the main bacterial taxa associated with intestinal health condition
Determination of hematological and biochemical parameters that may reflect the actual condition at intestinal and systemic level.
Assessment of the efficiency of measures implemented in projects aimed at controlling an infectious agent by modifying the microbiota and improving intestinal health.

In vitro determination of the antimicrobial activity of certain additives (essential oils, organic acids, etc.) on bacterial strains of clinical interest with minimum inhibitory concentration: customized designs depending on the product.
we test the products against a large bank of field strains isolated in clinical procedures
