There are so many exhibitors there in the sectors we support that if they all decided to visit us on Stand 24023 (and we understand why they'd want to), it would cause such a jam that the whole place would grind to a halt.
So please form an orderly queue - or e-mail us in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment with our founder, Dr Jan Knight, who'll be happy to tell you how Knight Scientific can help.
Vitafoods Europe is particularly important to us because international regulation and marketplace competition in the nutraceuticals industry makes the need for our services all the more acute.
How many of the companies that are struggling with formulations, assessing raw materials and finished products for quality, trying to demonstrate batch-to-batch consistency, predicting or measuring shelf-life, attempting to justify the marketing claims they need to make, monitor functional food activity in people or create trials to show the efficacy of interventions, are even aware that we at Knight Scientific can do all of that and to the most rigorous scientific standards?
For whether you’re formulating or producing supplements, sports drinks or other functional foods, we can use our world-class expertise to help you.
We can show you how to make your nutraceuticals better, prove they work, and substantiate your marketing claims.
And we produce a range of test kits if you prefer to do your own testing.
As one of the world’s leading experts on free radicals, reactive oxygen species and antioxidant testing, you can depend on our decades of experience to help you optimise formulations, identify synergies, and determine ABEL-RAC (relative antioxidant capacity) scores per mg of ingredients (far more accurate than ORAC).
We can challenge ingredients and finished products with a range of reactive oxygen species.
And we can help you demonstrate, scientifically, the efficacy of your formulations.
We do that by assessing changes in TAC (Total Antioxidant Capacity) after nutritional intervention, and by examining functional food activity in vitro by exposing your product to blood and monitoring the white blood cells’ response.
If your products are used in sport, you’ve probably already heard of our unique ABEL-Sport Overtraining Test.
It’s a state-of-the-art test that can tell, from a finger-prick of blood, whether an athlete is in danger of overtraining or has an infection, up to 48 hours before any symptoms appear.
It’s also a highly reliable way of showing and measuring improvements in the athlete’s health and fitness as a result of interventions – a Godsend to nutraceuticals manufacturers and formulators.
Our unique ABEL Wellbeing Test can also help you improve the success of your interventions.
It uses a finger-prick blood sample to show whether a person’s diet is adequate for their lifestyle, or whether nutritional intervention would be beneficial.
Olympians, footballers and nutritionists already regard us as an essential part of their team – and we hope you will, too.
We're expecting a lot of attention at Vitafoods Europe 2014 for our ABEL-Meter, a revolutionary, go-anywhere luminometer.
It's tiny, it's portable, and it's every bit as accurate an reliable as a lab luminometer, which means you can do your testing where you want and when you want instead of being tied to the apron-strings of your lab.
If you'd like to know more about the ABEL-Meter portable luminometer before the show, please contact us!
