Free radicals are defined as chemical species that possess one or more unpaired electrons.
Free radical attack has been linked to numerous pathological conditions in all organs of the body, such as cancer, diabetes, infertility, cardiovascular disease, lung, liver and renal disease, inflammatory and infectious conditions, ageing and neurological disorders.
The level of antioxidant protection may account for an individual's ability to fight disease.
A range of antioxidant tests is currently available from Randox including enzymes and Total Antioxidant Status (TAS). The Randox range of antioxidant kits are manufactured under rigorous quality control procedures. All Randox kits are developed to the highest specifications and conform to international standards. All Randox tests are easy to use and have been developed for use on most clinical chemistry analysers.
