Our client aims to support the maintenance and improvement of human physical functions through the development of novel functional foods and beverages. This request focuses on mitochondrial function among human physical functions and seeks a technology that can easily measure human mitochondrial function.
Although a biopsy of the target tissue is commonly required to measure human mitochondrial function, the significant burden on the test subject that is caused by this is a problem to be solved.
Therefore, our client decided to issue this request to companies and researchers all over the world so as to find a joint partner that is willing to develop a technology that measures human mitochondrial function in a minimally invasive manner.
