NIS Labs (Natural Immune Systems) was founded in 1999 by Gitte Jensen.
Her academic background is in cancer research, with a special focus on immune surveillance and systems biology. Gitte’s appointments at University of Aarhus, University of Alberta, and McGill University – along with a strong interest in natural products, nutrition, herbal and complementary medicine – provided a unique bridge for serving traditional medicine as well as novel developments in the natural products industry with mainstream research tools.
Having directed an immunology research and teaching lab for the previous 7 years, the focus of the new company was immunology.
Over the years we have maintained that core capacity by continuously upgrading our in-house immunology lab facilities, as well as expanding into other areas of human physiology based on evolving industry needs.
At NIS Labs, we offer customized protocols designed to support the marketing claims of natural products as well as an array of standardized tests, including assays to determine antioxidant capacity and anti-inflammatory effects.
Interacting with people from the community who are interested in participating in our clinical studies are an integral part of our business.
We work with an international client base, testing natural products from across the world, and maintain an active profile in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.
We continue to take a leading edge with bioassay development, specifically targeted to the study of natural products.
Each natural product is unique in form and function - or - in marketing profiles (Direction)
We design and perform lab and clinical research to support the uniqueness of natural products and/or the marketing profiles.
Good unique messaging comes from a combination of marketing and research.
We have a relatively rare setup where we have on-site a full immunological tool-set and expertise, and we apply a hands-on approach to both clinical trials and high-end lab work.
Over the last 25 years, we have added many different tool-sets and gathered expertise to enable us to offer both unique and diverse research capabilities to our clients.
