Clinical solutions for advanced health and wellness.
SpectraCell Laboratories, Inc., is a specialized clinical testing laboratory company providing solutions for personalized healthcare. We are passionate about our business - and committed to our client practitioners and their patients. We believe that optimal individual nutritional status and advanced diagnostic tools are vital for promoting general health and preventing many specific diseases.
As medicine progresses in the pursuit of health and wellness, patient care is taking on a broader and deeper perspective. Our understanding of the importance of biochemical individuality and the role of subclinical deficiencies in chronic disease conditions continues to grow rapidly. It is the mission of SpectraCell Laboratories to provide the medical community with the information it needs to understand these developments and provide the diagnostic tools it requires to take full advantage of them. SpectraCell.com is one example of SpectraCell's commitment to providing physicians and patients with the latest in research and clinical information with regard to the role of nutrition, cardiovascular risk assessment and genetic analysis in the prevention and management of chronic disease conditions, as well as the achievement of optimal health. In our journey to provide better solutions for optimal health, we will continue to develop additional tests while continuously maintaining our standards of high scientific quality.
SpectraCell's employees are dedicated to infusing our commitment to quality into everything we do. We welcome and encourage you to tour our facilities.
Established in 1993, SpectraCell Laboratories, Inc. has been a pioneer in the field of laboratory functional testing for micronutrients. The Company commenced operations to commercialize a unique, proprietary blood test that measures lymphocyte growth to diagnose functional intracellular deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants unique to each individual patient's metabolic processes and immune system.
SpectraCell's nutrient testing technology was developed at the University of Texas in a research project conducted by the Clayton Foundation for Research. The Foundation received a patent covering the lymphocyte growth testing process and the culture medium used in the process. SpectraCell acquired the rights to an exclusive license of the patent from the Foundation and our micronutrient testing was made available to practitioners.
In 2006, we expanded our specialized offerings to include the Lipoprotein Particle Profile (LPP™), using patented ultracentrifugation technology invented at Texas A & M University to provide the most advanced assessment of cardiovascular risk with our acquirement. Through our dedication to research and development, we continue to develop and introduce innovative diagnostic tests in the emerging field of genetic analysis and anti-aging medicine.
SpectraCell's laboratory and corporate headquarters are located in Houston, Texas. Our corporate headquarters recently expanded its state-of-the-art to encompass 30,000 square feet of laboratory and administrative space.
