The technologies and systems
The oxidative stress evaluation and interpretation technologies and systems will allow an individual to obtain a personalized health condition assessment. By an exclusive graphic representation, a person will be made aware of her/his actual health condition and of possible health risks. These "menu a la carte" tests consist of oxidative stress assessments of diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, cancer, or inflammatory diseases, and also provide health assessments dedicated to athletes.
Located at the Universite de Liege, Belgium, and dedicated to preventive medicine, Probiox developed a portfolio of technologies and systems in relation to oxidative stress. It has developed proprietary tools to diagnose conditions of oxidative stress and inflammation by means of biochemical analysis and/or gene expression profiling.
