R&D expertise

Leading the field in innovation and R&D.

Ongoing research and development is the lifeblood of our work. DuPont operates multiple research and application laboratories around the globe. And we are the only culture supplier with a dedicated Health and Nutrition Center. This dedication to science has also made us what we are today — the world’s leading supplier of probiotics.

The Probiotic R&D program is based on four technology pillars:

  • Stability — ensuring probiotic viability throughout the shelf life of supplements and nutritionals.
  • Efficacy — developing condition-specific documentation and formulations over an expanding range of conditions.
  • Application — expanding the range of delivery vehicles for probiotic-supplemented products
  • Genetic integrity — leading genomics science to certify strain identity.


In addition to the work conducted at our Health & Nutrition Center and multiple global R&D sites, we support our development efforts by frequent collaborations with external research institutes and universities.
