The Cellular Nutrition Assays, Add-On Test - ALCAT Test Kit combines the Cellular Micronutrient Assay and the Redox/Antioxidant Protection Assay to provide a comprehensive, personalized assessment of a patient's cellular nutritional needs and antioxidant status.


Test Code:






No fasting is required. Avoid antibiotics and antihistamines for 5 days, oral steroids for 7 days, and topical steroids for 24 hours prior to collection. Patients should refrain from taking any medications or supplements for 3-4 hours before their blood draw. Check with your physician before stopping any medications.

Test Results:

7-10 business days once the lab receives the specimen. May take longer based on weather, holiday, or lab delays.

What is the purpose of this test?

The Cellular Nutrition Assays, Add-On Test - ALCAT Test Kit is an additional test that can be added to the following ALCAT Test Panel components:

  • Platinum Plus
  • Platinum Comprehensive
  • Comprehensive Wellness #1
  • Comprehensive Wellness #2
  • Comprehensive Wellness #3

The Cellular Nutrition Assays offered by Cell Science Systems combines two key components: the Cellular Micronutrient Assay and the Redox/Antioxidant Protection Assay. This comprehensive approach allows for a personalized assessment of a patient's nutritional needs at the cellular level.

  1. Cellular Micronutrient Assay: This component evaluates the levels of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids within the body's cells. By measuring cellular nutrient levels, it provides insights into individual nutrient deficiencies, guiding targeted dietary and supplementation strategies to optimize cellular health and overall well-being.
  2. Redox/Antioxidant Protection Assay: The second component focuses on assessing the body's antioxidant capacity and redox balance, which are crucial for protecting cells from oxidative damage and maintaining cellular integrity. By evaluating antioxidant levels and oxidative stress markers, this assay helps identify imbalances that may contribute to chronic diseases and guides interventions to support antioxidant defense mechanisms.

By combining these two assays, the Full Cellular Nutrition Assay offers a comprehensive evaluation of cellular nutrient status and antioxidant protection. It allows healthcare providers to develop personalized recommendations to address individual nutritional needs and promote optimal health outcomes.

Benefits of the Cellular Nutrition Assay, Add-On Test - ALCAT Test Kit:

  1. Personalized Micronutrient Assessment: The assay evaluates the levels of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants within the body's cells, providing personalized insights into nutritional status and deficiencies.
  2. Optimization of Nutrient Intake: By identifying specific nutrient deficiencies at the cellular level, individuals can tailor their dietary intake and supplementation regimen to address deficiencies and promote optimal cellular function and overall health.
  3. Enhanced Absorption and Utilization: Understanding cellular nutrient levels can help individuals identify factors that may affect nutrient absorption and utilization, allowing for targeted interventions to improve nutrient uptake and utilization efficiency.
  4. Support for Health Conditions: The Cellular Nutrition Assay can assist healthcare providers in developing targeted nutritional interventions to manage and prevent various health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and metabolic imbalances.
  5. Monitoring of Nutritional Status: Regular monitoring of cellular nutrient levels can track changes in nutritional status over time, enabling individuals to adjust their dietary and lifestyle habits accordingly to maintain optimal health and well-being.
  6. Preventive Health Measures: By proactively assessing cellular nutrition, individuals can identify and address nutrient deficiencies before they manifest as symptoms or contribute to the development of chronic diseases, thereby promoting long-term health and disease prevention.
