Chronoscreen™ is a functional assay of biological activity. It is a phenotypic screen giving a whole organism, whole lifespan readout of an ingredient activity on the pathways of cellular aging. Chronoscreen™ is a semi-automated patented technology from Sibelius Natural Products
International regulations on nutrition and health claims in related products requires the need for scientific approval. Companies that want to market functional ingredients need reliable, rapid and inexpensive models for the identification of an ingredient's biological activity and potential mechanism of action. Chronoscreen™ is based on the use of the model research organism Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) for testing the biological profile of natural products, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals in a manner that is both well-validated and highly-efficient for identifying new and novel ingredients.
The Sibelius Chronoscreen™ can identify and confirm the evidence of potential benefits through the measurement of a proprietary ingredient's effect on lifespan and healthspan.
