Cambridge Nutritional Sciences

 

Cambridge Nutritional Sciences (CNS) specialises in the field of immunodiagnostics and is a subsidiary of Omega Diagnostics Group PLC, a provider of diagnostic products for use in hospitals, clinics and laboratories in over 100 countries worldwide.

Diagnostic testing can be an invaluable tool for empowering individuals to take control of their health, which is something that is dependent upon the proper functioning of all of the systems within the human body. These systems do not work in isolation of each other, but rather as a complex integrated and interconnected network.

CNS offer premium quality diagnostic tests designed to assess the functionality of these systems, with our primary focus upon the assessment of adrenal function and the detection of immune reactions to food, often described as IgG-Mediated Food Intolerance.

Our comprehensive Adrenal Function Profile uses a convenient salivary sample collection method to assess an individual’s cyclical cortisol levels and pinpoint the all-important cortisol awakening response. Also included are a morning and evening DHEA measurement, to enable the cortisol/DHEA ratio to be identified, which is significant in term of results interpretation.

As pioneers in the application of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay-based technology to IgG-Mediated Food Intolerance testing, CNS have developed a novel macroarray-based assay, Food Detective™ and a panel of microarray-based assays, Foodprint®. We are amongst the UK’s leading manufacturers of these innovative and market-leading diagnostic tests, identifying Food Specific IgG Antibody production, which has been associated with a number of chronic conditions including migraine and IBS.
