Gut models (cell lines, organoids) are used for the measurement of induction and inhibition of intestinal injury, and the inclusion and degradation of substances (for example drugs or proteins). In organoids also specific effects of substances (foods, medicines and other chemicals) can be determined. The bowel models are also used to test antibacterial activity of natural substances.
