Life Length is the only company in the world that has the technology to measure the percentage of critical-short telomeres precisely, individually, and cell-by-cell. The technology HT Q-FISH (owned by Life Length) and the patented telo-mapping technology use the latest microscopy technology and specific, mathematical algorithms to calculate the individual telomere length in the nucleus.
More than 5 years and $ 20 million have been invested in the development of this technology.
The scientific advisory board consists of internationally renowned experts in the field of telomeres:
Dr. Maria Blasco, Dr. Jerry Shay (University of Texas), Dr. Sandychang (Yale), Dr. Kathleen Collins (Berkeley), Dr. William Andrews and Dr. Mark Rosenberg.
TAT® is a proprietary technology that assesses telomere length individually. Life Length measure telomere length using high-content screening, high throughput in situ fluorescence hybridization, providing a comprehensive analysis of the entire distribution of telomere length ranging from the shortest to the longest telomeres, including frequency, mean and median values.
The measurement of critical-short telomeres and the subsequent comparison of the biological with the chronological age can encourage people to make health-promoting decisions that improve their lives in the short and long term.
In this way, they can change habits that accelerated ageing.
The measurement is carried out on the basis of a blood sample in combination with a questionnaire.
Benefits of measuring your telomeres
Telomeres are an important biomarker in your body, helping to identify your true biological age and playing an essential role in your cellular health. Using Life Length’s technology, you and your doctor can develop a personalized plan to improve your quality of life and slow down your aging process creating a truly personalized assessment of your needs.
