Effortless measurement of all four NADs and glutathione for laboratories

February 1, 2024

NADMED technology comes in kits that require only basic laboratory equipment.In response to the escalating demand from clinicians and researchers for precise and fast NAD measurement, NADMED unveils an innovative technology designed for extracting and measuring all four NADs and two glutathiones. The method is founded on colorimetric quantification, applicable to blood, tissue, or cells.

The distinguishing feature of the NADMED method lies in its ability to measure metabolites individually, setting it apart from other methods and delivering exceptional accuracy comparable to mass spectrometry. Based on transparent scientific research from the University of Helsinki, NADMED's technology presents fresh business opportunities for laboratories.

NADMED's laboratory technology is available in kits, with the first EU IVDD compliant (CE-marked) kits for blood NAD+ and NADH already for sale. Kits for the remaining metabolites are slated for production by the year's end.

Measuring NAD metabolites and glutathione has long been hindered by the absence of a rapid and reliable method, impeding both research and the development of clinical applications for these REDOX molecules. NADMED's technology presents a fast, scalable, and cost-effective solution. Unlike mass spectrometer analysis, which may take days, NADMED analysis yields results within hours. Moreover, NADMED makes this analysis accessible for laboratories without mass spectrometry, at a fraction of the total cost.

“We believe that the NADMED method will advance science and medical practice by enabling larger and quicker clinical trials and in due course, diagnostics. NAD measuring should be seen as a first-line diagnostic tool in the future to fight for example degenerative diseases and metabolic disorders.”, says Jari Närhi, CEO of NADMED.

NADMED is a spin-out company from the University of Helsinki. NADMED offers kits and laboratory services for accurate, quick, and cost-effective measurement of NADs from any biological sample.

NADs (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotides) are coenzymes that are essential to metabolism, regulating hundreds of biochemical reactions in all our cells. They exist in four different types: NAD+, NADH, NADP+, and NADPH, the ratios of which in different cells and tissues signal for nutrient availability and cellular growth and repair. NADs are necessary for all living creatures, from plants to animal kingdom.
