SpectraCell's Telomere Testing Goes Mainstream
Date:7/21/2011

echnology and only requires 1 mL of whole blood.  When a sample is received at SpectraCell's Houston laboratory, the white blood cells are broken apart, the DNA is extracted and the telomeric DNA is amplified into a measurable signal.  This signal is compared to a control gene of known length and a Telomere Score is generated.  The price of the Telomere Test is $290. Testing once each year starting around age 25 is suggested to monitor the rate of telomere loss.  More information at www.spectracell.com.

About SpectraCell Laboratories – SpectraCell is a CLIA accredited laboratory servicing healthcare providers nationwide by providing advanced clinical tests that measure nutritional status, cardiovascular risk, and cellular aging.

SpectraCell's micronutrient tests measure the function of over 32 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants in white blood cells, specifically taking into consideration personal differences in metabolism, age, genetics, health, prescription drug usage, absorption rate and other factors.

SpectraCell's Telomere test measures how well a person's body is aging internally.  Many factors – both genetic and environmental – affect the rate of telomere loss, and this test provides an overall window into aging at the cellular level.

SpectraCell's Lipoprotein Particle Profile is the most advanced lipoprotein particle test available, providing an accurate and in-depth assessment of cardiovascular risk.
