As I wrote in a previous blog post, I am involved in a very exciting, sort of a medical underground project, about providing GMP-produced probiotics for preterm infants.

The non-profit company Neobiomics will provide a probiotics product in early 2018, fulfilling specific needs for preterm infants. Non-profit refers to that any potential revenue is re-invested in next generation products or leads to a price reduction. The idea is to have a self-propelling business, without commercial interests.

Due to rigorous quality standards (GMP + "Infant grade") and small production batch size we estimate a price of 3 euros per stickpack, i.e. the monthly cost will be around 90 euros/infant. Given larger batches (more people use the product), we expect the price to drop in the future.  

To make the final internal decision on setting up the production line and produce the first batch, we need to gather information on potential use of this product.

If you are interested to use the Neobiomics Probiotics product, “from the community – to the community”, please respond to a few upcoming questions that you find on this URL: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/neobiomics

It takes about 1-2 minutes to respond.
