Research Nutrition provides health care practitioners with world-class functional testing services through our international partners.
Doctor’s Data, Inc. (DDI) a premier clinical laboratory with over 30 years’ experience, provides specialty testing to healthcare practitioners around the world. A specialist and pioneer in essential and toxic elemental testing of multiple human tissues, the laboratory offers a wide array of functional testing.
DDI’s tests are utilised in the assessment, detection, prevention, and treatment of heavy metal burden, nutritional deficiencies, gastrointestinal function, hepatic detoxification, metabolic abnormalities, and diseases of environmental origin.
Precision Analytical is a CLIA certified laboratory based in Oregon, USA. It is run by a team of dedicated scientists with over 50 years combined experience in performing laboratory testing and the development of innovative testing methodology. After extensive experience working within numerous well-known hormone testing laboratories, Precision Analytical was established by Mark Newman to address the need for better clinical accuracy, convenience and relevance compared with existing conventional hormone testing methods. Subsequently developing one of the most advanced and comprehensive models for testing a patient’s steroid and adrenal hormones.
DUTCH (Dried Urine Testing for Comprehensive Hormones) was the result of this extraordinary endeavour.
In the process of developing this unique testing process, Precision Analytical has harnessed almost all primary hormone assessment methods available (including immunoassay/ELISA, colorimetric, GC-MS, LC-MS, LC-MS/MS, GC-MS/MS), to arrive at a process that uses each where they are most appropriate and accurate for the specific hormones in question, and for the purposes of clinical assessment (including where supplementation occurs). As a result practitioners can be confident in offering their patients the most accurate and comprehensive hormone testing available.
Genetic testing and nutrigenomics are the future of individualised healthcare. Although reliable genetic testing is readily available for clinical use, genetics is still a relatively new clinical tool. Until recently, healthcare practitioners have been left to educate themselves in this exciting area of clinical science, by simply picking up information where they can.
It is for this reason that DNAlysis Biotechnology, created DNALife.
DNALife comprises a dedicated team of scientists with expertise in Human Genetics, Molecular Biology, Nutritional Genomics and Dietetics. DNALife leverages scientific advances in Human Genomics research for the benefit of the consumer, by providing access to affordable, quality genetic testing that is presented in a consumer-friendly manner.
By placing emphasis on the inter-relationship between genes, nutrition and lifestyle, genetic tests provide a valuable tool for the management of health and wellness. The use of cutting-edge molecular technologies provides high-quality testing, performed according to the highest international standards.
Equipped with the most up-to-date DNA tests, DNALife is dedicated to providing healthcare practitioners with training and education to accurately and usefully interpret genetic results.
Lipid Technologies uses their precision proprietary method for high sensitivity blood-spot omega 3 analysis to identify the patient’s complete fatty acid profile, specifically focusing on omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid levels, and it’s relation to heart health.
Immunosciences Lab., Inc. (ISL) is a pioneer and leader in the field of molecular medicine. The research that went into the development of these tests has been published in the most prestigious medical journals in the field. Immunosciences Lab., Inc. is testimony to ISL’s more than two decades of expertise and in-depth understanding of clinical immunopathology.
US BioTek, pioneers in ELISA methodology, holds over thirty plus years of experience in the industry and has become the trusted name in today’s cutting-edge immunoassay technology.
Fully automated robotic systems form the framework of the state-of-the-art high-performance ELISA platform; a framework built on the foundation of a world class team of scientists and technicians. Every analyte tested for every immunoassay is run in complete duplicate for precision, that is, consistently reproducible results.
The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. is a research-based clinical laboratory and world leader in providing testing for metabolic, genetic, mitochondrial, and environmental factors in chronic illnesses.
They are dedicated to assisting healthcare practitioners help patients achieve their maximum potential through quality laboratory testing. Great Plains Laboratory provides one of the most reliable, comprehensive, and understandable scientific results, using the latest technology and proven techniques.
Located in Byron Bay, NSW and founded by Dr. Nirala Jacobi, BHSc, ND (USA), who graduated from Bastyr University in 1998 with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine. Dr Jacobi is considered one of Australia’s leading experts in the natural treatment of small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a common cause of IBS.
Labrix was founded by clinicians Jay H. Mead, MD, FASCP and Erin T. Lommen, ND with the goal of raising the bar on quality hormone testing. With Dr. Mead’s 25 years in laboratory medicine, plus the doctors combined 40 plus years in clinical practice, Labrix founders were well positioned to achieve their goal. In a few short years, Labrix has become recognised for setting a new standard for saliva testing in accuracy, reliability and turnaround times.
Dunwoody Labs is A CLIA licenced laboratory located in Dunwoody, Georgia, USA.
The birth of Dunwoody Labs came out of a clinical need for certain testing profiles that were not currently on the market. Founded by Dr. Cheryl Burdette, ND, a clinical healthcare practitioner who noticed that many tests exist in academia or research settings, but may lag in commercial availability to clinicians.
As much as modern healthcare is directed at defining a disease process and blocking it, Dunwoody saw the need to more effectively evaluate systems in the body, and provide these insights to practitioners. The analytes that Dunwoody bring to the market have been extensively studied in 1000s of published papers – to put well-researched lab methodologies in the hands of clinical healthcare practitioners.
