The need to guarantee poultry absorption of a correct amount of nutrients in the intestine cannot disregard the degradation by the rumen microflora. For over 30 years our scientific research has set the goal to improve the poultry bypass so that a lower concentration of active ingredients in the diet leads to maximizing performance.

Avipower® 2

AviPower® 2 is composed of a mixture of botanicals microencapsulated in a lipid matrix.

Botanicals can interfere in different ways with Eimeria spp life cycle.

In vitro model of coccidiosis

Chicken enterocytes are incubated with Eimeria sporozoites and various treatments in order to evaluate the invasion efficiency of Eimeria.

Trial 1

• 480 broilers Ross 308 • 40 pens (12birds/pen) • 4 treatments • n=10

Period: 21-28 days
Different letters indicate significant differences (P<0.05)

Period: 0-42 days
Different letters indicate significant differences (P<0.05)

Day 28: intestinal lesions score

  • Assessing intestinal health. In vitro and ex vivo gut barrier models of farm animals: benefits and limitations

    The concept of “gut health" is not well defined, but this concept has begun to play a very important role in the field of animal science. However, a clear definition of GIT health and the means by which to measure it are lacking. In vitro and ex vivo models can facilitate these studies, creating well-controlled and repeatable conditions to understand how to improve animal gut health.
