We’re delighted that LPLDL® has achieved this milestone. The ingredient fits into a spectrum of pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, and biotherapeutic roles; truly raising the bar for the probiotic category – a sector that is continuing to see strong growth across the board.
“GMP validation demonstrates that ProBiotix consistently puts safety, quality and development at the forefront to deliver high quality ingredients. Particularly significant in an industry that relies on proven demonstrable safety and accountability, this milestone is another key step forward in the continual commercialisation of LPLDL®.”
