Phylogene Specialized Analyses Laboratory - Back Home


Food allergens detection, species identification, omics

Phylogene SA was launched in 1999 with the objective of developing methods of identification and ways to authenticate, using DNA and proteins.

The applications are mainly the service to the food industry, health industry including in vitro diagnostics, cosmetics, environment industry as expertise or analysis and as kit developer to the diagnostics industry.

Skin microbiota:

Metagenomics recent developments now enable the skin microbiome investigation. PHYLOGENE offers bacterial 16s rDNA and fungal ITS sequencing with OTU-based approaches to investigate microbial communities diversity and determine taxonomic composition for cosmetics evaluation

(see also LC-MS/MS proteomics for metaproteomics)

Species identification:

Yes, PHYLOGENE realizes for 13 years species identification, terrestrial and fishes

Yes, this is targeted detection, the choice of species depends on your estimated risk.

Yes, the quantification is possible. It is of the type: horse/horse+beef

Identification and quantification of microbes

Probiotics, process strains by RT-PCR

Accreditation extension for food allergens:

Since January 2013, PHYLOGENE is accreditated by COFRAC in flexible scope, according to  ISO 17025 standard, for allergens detection and quantification in food matrices by immunoenzymatic methods (ELISA) Ref Accreditation n°1-2128-testing- Scope available on

ALLERGENS IN WINE: Regulation n°CE 579/2012

The regulation n° 579/2012 was published on June 30th 2012. The labelling of milk or egg is now mandatory on 2012 wines when using these fining agents. Its "whereas" n° (3) goes to the OIV-COMEX 502-2012 resolution which gives the 0,25ppm detection threshold. It means that the labelling is not necessary under this detected quantity .

PHYLOGENE - allergen specialized lab- tested all the available techniques for allergen tracking in wines. Many differences were seen between the ELISA kits about the false positive and false negative results (see study). To discard these risks and secure the bottle labelling it is necessary to check these two points when starting the analysis.

Phylogene-Mass spectrometry

Devoted web site to Mass spectrometry possibilities and to proteomics and metabolomics applications




PHYLOGENE-mass spectrometry has been granted by EUROSTARS for it's NOSO-FIGHT project about Healthcare-Associated Infections.

PHYLOGENE-mass spectrometry is attending to the ID-THON project about tuna species identification

PHYLOGENE-mass spectrometry is partner of KINDReD, a FP7-Health-2013 Innovation project. The project is a 36 months and 14 partners project. The project aim is to develop drug candidate against kinetoplastids. PHYLOGENE- mass spectrometry is WP leader for drug's target determination.
