ChromaDex Offers Stable Isotope Phytochemicals for Nutrition Research

January 23, 2013

Stable isotopes can be used as non-radioactive tracers to help track and trace the transport and transformation of ingredients in living organisms.

ChromaDex Corp. (Irvine, CA) announced a new agreement to distribute stable isotope labeled phytochemicals and plant products from IsoLife (Wageningen, Netherlands). During nutrition research, for instance, these stable isotopes can be used as non-radioactive tracers to help track and trace the transport and transformation of ingredients in living organisms. Stable isotope tracers can also be used to develop internal standards for food and beverage.

“The IsoLife agreement will add to ChromaDex’s comprehensive and growing catalog, which contains more than 3,000 phytochemicals and 500 botanical reference materials,” says ChromaDex CEO and cofounder Frank Jaksch. “By adding the IsoLife stable isotope materials to our portfolio, we continue our commitment to providing access to key materials to the research community, helping to facilitate important research for the life science industry.”
