About the Manufacturer

Labrix Laboratories

Labrix Laboratories state of the art salivary, urine and serum testing. Labrix is a CLIA registered laboratory.

Neurotransmitter Testing

Labrix once again is setting new standards in laboratory medicine. The Labrix neurotransmitter assays utilize HPLC Triple Quadrupole MS/MS technology which is proving to be the most accurate methodology for measuring neurotransmitters. The advantage of Labrix’ assays are higher sensitivity and reproducibility than currently available, which means greater confidence in the reported results.

Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva testing is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. Hormone levels in saliva accurately represent the amount of hormone delivered to receptors in the body, unlike serum which represents hormone levels that may or may not be delivered to receptors of the body. Clinically, it is far more relevant to test the amount of hormones delivered to the tissue receptors as this is a reflection of the active hormone levels of the body.

Urine Iodine Testing

The identification and treatment of an iodine deficiency has obvious benefits. In order to determine the daily amount of essential iodine required for whole body sufficiency, an Iodine Loading Test must be performed. This test is based on the premise that the more iodine-deficient the body is, the more ingested iodine is retained, and the less is excreted in the urine.
