Nigel and Sue Plummer established Cultech Ltd in 1994 with the vision for a company that had research at its heart.
The company now employs a team of 20 research scientists and spends around £500,000 a year on research into the use of probiotics and other nutritional compounds to support health. This research is ongoing and we currently have two major studies in the field.
Cultech Ltd is licensed by the MHRA to produce probiotics for clinical studies. Probiotics are different from other supplements in that bacterial strain differences mean that benefits can be specific to an individual product. Ongoing research and a detailed understanding of the developments in the probiotic industry are both necessary to stay ahead of the game. Approval to give probiotics to almost 500 healthy newborn babies for the Swansea Baby Study is a testament to the quality and safety of the Lab4 products.
