Patent Granted on CAP-e (Cell-based antioxidant protection) assay

The CAP-e assay (Cell-based Antioxidant Protection in Erythrocytes) is a new method for evaluating the antioxidant potential of natural products based on the concept that many such antioxidant products are only of biological relevance if they are able to protect living cells. In other words, it is a cell-based assay for the evaluation of whether antioxidants in natural products are capable of protecting live cells from oxidative damage – it is designed to measure the antioxidant bioavailability of a product at a cellular level.


[Recruiting Closed] 85-01 Nutritional Antioxidant Study

NIS Labs is looking for healthy male volunteers, between the ages of 30 and 70, to participate in a clinical trial involving an antioxidant extract from tea.

The study involves consuming a tea extract, or a placebo, daily for 28 days. Volunteers will visit NIS Labs at study start, and again after 28 days. At each visit, a questionnaire is completed, blood pressure is recorded and a blood sample is drawn.

We are looking for people who do not smoke or use other nicotine products and do not drink more than 2 cups of caffeinated beverages per day and do not drink more than 1 cup of green or black tea per day.

Supply Source: NIS Labs: Creating a New Reputation for Research

NIS Labs, Klamath Falls, OR, is a contract research laboratory that evaluates strategies to improve immune function and reduce inflammation, hence the name Natural Immune Systems, or NIS for short. Over the years, according to Gitte Jensen, PhD, research director, the company’s mission and research goals have evolved. “Today, a good part of what we do involves testing natural products in different cellular testing protocols, in contrast to chemical or analytical testing—much of this work assists our clients by providing the foundation be­hind mechanisms of action claims,” she said. “We believe we have a unique skill set to offer this growing industry: Solid academic research training, combined with an understanding of the special demands to research protocols necessary when working with complex natural products.” – See more
