Biotics Research BioDophilus-FOS - 4 oz.
Biotics Research BioDophilus-FOS is a pleasant tasting powder that supplies the probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-I strain) and Bifidobacterium bifidum in a prebiotic base of fructooligosaccharides.
A special dietary supplement supplying:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1)
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
Each 1/2 teaspoon (1.5 gm) serving of BioDophilus-FOS supplies three billion Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1) and Bifidobacterium bifidum organisms with 1,200 mg of Fructooligosaccharides (FOS).
- Human derived, DDS-1 strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) from organic beet source (growth enhancing factor)
- Stabilized with rosemary and other cytoprotectants
- Refrigeration during shipment not required
- Meets or exceeds label claim at expiration date when stored at normal room temperature
According to Dr. Khem Shihani, a renowned authority on probiotics, the majority of probiotic products on the market today do not meet their label claim for probiotics or numeric content. A recent study conducted by Biotics Research Corporation substantiates that, at the stated expiration date, BioDophilus-FOS meets or exceeds label claim, including the numerical claim. And while they recommend your patients refrigerate BioDophilus-FOS to preserve its activity, expiration dates are based on storage at normal room temperature. Additionally, cross country shipping studies, conducted during the heat of summer, demonstrated that shipment of BioDophilus-FOS requires no refrigeration to meet label claim at expiration.
Quality Control - What Sets Biotics Apart
The Biotics Research way!
At Biotics Research Corporation, we manufacture our own branded products on site, in our own state of the art facilities, allowing for complete control of the entire manufacturing process. In our on-site laboratories, the highly skilled members of our Quality Control Unit, utilize modern, sophisticated technologies and validated analytical methods to test incoming raw materials, monitor manufacturing processes, perform in-process testing, and test all finished products prior to their release for shipment. In fact, many aspects of our cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) exceed the new, recently enacted FDA guidelines for dietary supplements in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our products.
The Quality Control Unit (QCU) has the authority to approve and/or reject all specifications and procedures associated with the production and release of all raw materials, packaging materials and finished products, including test methods and results, instrument calibrations, and processing records. The QCU conducts all internal audits, and validates and audits all raw material and packaging suppliers and service vendors as well.
All incoming raw materials are subject to appropriate testing prior to their release for production. Tests conducted include identity, potency, biological activity, microbiological, including bacteria, yeast and mold (including aflatoxins) and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury). Retained samples are maintained of all raw materials and finished products for future testing requirements (raw material stability and finished product expiration date verification).
All bulk finished products (tablets & capsules) are inspected and subjected to metal detection prior to being sampled by QC. They are then subject to appropriate disintegration and/or dissolution testing, and potency testing prior to being released to packaging. All liquid and powder products are tested for potency prior to packaging as well. Finally, microbiological testing is performed on all finished products and document reconciliation is completed prior to being released for shipment.
All testing is performed by our trained QC personnel using state of the art laboratory instrumentation including High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), ICP, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AA), gel electrophoresis, FT-IR, Ultra Violet spectrophotometry, Thin Layer chromatography and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).
Unlike many companies that are struggling to meet the new GMP requirements established by the FDA, companies that are being regulated into implementing quality programs, extensive Quality Control has always been part of the corporate fabric of Biotics Research Corporation.
From day one, the mantra of Biotics Research Corporationhas been "Innovation and Quality." Our goals remain unchanged - utilize innovative ideas and carefully researched concepts with advanced techniques to develop products of superior quality and effectiveness - bringing you "The Best of Science and Nature".
