NIS Laboratory Facility

Our protocols are based on gold-standard methods, and in specific cases have evolved further through inventions of particular interest for documenting the uniqueness of natural products.  Our on-site laboratory offers flexibility and customization of bioassays to identify mechanisms of action of natural products.

Our laboratory includes:

  • Antioxidant test panelslens
  • Biological sample handling at level II
  • Cell culture for laboratory and clinical evaluations
  • DEXA scanner for lean/fat body mass composition
  • Flow cytometry for characterization of cell populations, activation status, and functional markers
  • Gel electrophoresis
  • Immune test panels
  • Inflammation regulation
  • Joint range of motion using dual digital inclinometry
  • Laser Doppler for microvascular blood perfusion
  • Luminex platform for performing MagPix protein arrays
  • Storage of clinical samples at -25C, -80C and -195C.
