About SpectraCell Laboratories
SpectraCell is a CLIA accredited laboratory that services healthcare providers nationwide by providing advanced clinical testing with the patented FIA(TM) (Functional Intracellular Analysis) and LPP(TM) (Lipoprotein Particle Profile) tests.
SpectraCell's FIA(TM) testing is an innovative assessment of a patient's nutritional status. Unlike traditional serum, hair and urine tests, SpectraCell's FIA(TM) evaluates how an individual's white blood cells respond to varied environments of over 30 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. As a result, individual differences in metabolism, age, genetics, health, prescription drug usage, absorption rate and other factors are taken into consideration in determining deficiencies that need to be corrected.
SpectraCell's LPP(TM) tests are the most advanced lipoprotein tests available. Unlike traditional cholesterol tests, SpectraCell's LPP(TM) directly measures both the size and number of several classes of lipoprotein particles providing an accurate assessment of cardiovascular risk.
