Biotics Research Cytozyme-THY - 60 Tablets
Biotics Research Cytozyme-THY supplies glandular specific support as Neonatal Thymus Concentrate (bovine), combined with SOD and catalase, important antioxidant enzymes. Thymic function is critical in immune health, however thymic function declines with age. The thymus gland is most active following birth (neonatal stage).
Laboratory Assessment Of Cytozyme-THY
In promoting T cell maturation, thymosin binds to immature T cells, altering their surface properties so they form “rosettes” in vitro. Cytozyme-THY was assayed using a T cell rosette formation assay based on mouse peripheral blood lymphocytes (the Wara Ammann E Rosette bioassay) by an independent laboratory. Cytozyme-THY increased T cell rosette formation approximately 2-fold greater than that obtained by a competitor’s thymus glandular.
The neonatal thymus from newborn calves possesses abundant cortical tissue, reflecting maximal immune activity. Cells are compact and possess a high nuclear content, verified by the high level of DNA. Examination of adult bovine heart frequently detected calcification of arteries, and the presence of numerous parasites, confirmating that aging (arteriosclerosis) and environmental exposure (parasites) are readily detectable in adult bovine hearts.
The adult cortex exhibited large amounts of lipofuscin, which was absent from neonatal adrenal glands. Amylase output is also markedly higher in younger animals, which was shown to decrease to below 20% in older animals. In the brain and liver the accumulation of oxidized protein corresponded to a loss of key enzyme activities. In older animals oxidized protein may represent between 30 to 50% of the total cellular protein. Contrary to the neonatal tissue, the adult bovine liver showed detectable amounts of a variety of pesticides. As the histological data suggests glandulars from Biotics Research contain twice as much nuclear material (DNA) as the corresponding PMG product, evidenced by the DNA percentage of both Cytozyme-THY and Cytozyme-AD.
Quality Control - What Sets Biotics Apart
The Biotics Research way!
At Biotics Research Corporation, we manufacture our own branded products on site, in our own state of the art facilities, allowing for complete control of the entire manufacturing process. In our on-site laboratories, the highly skilled members of our Quality Control Unit, utilize modern, sophisticated technologies and validated analytical methods to test incoming raw materials, monitor manufacturing processes, perform in-process testing, and test all finished products prior to their release for shipment. In fact, many aspects of our cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) exceed the new, recently enacted FDA guidelines for dietary supplements in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our products.
The Quality Control Unit (QCU) has the authority to approve and/or reject all specifications and procedures associated with the production and release of all raw materials, packaging materials and finished products, including test methods and results, instrument calibrations, and processing records. The QCU conducts all internal audits, and validates and audits all raw material and packaging suppliers and service vendors as well.
All incoming raw materials are subject to appropriate testing prior to their release for production. Tests conducted include identity, potency, biological activity, microbiological, including bacteria, yeast and mold (including aflatoxins) and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury). Retained samples are maintained of all raw materials and finished products for future testing requirements (raw material stability and finished product expiration date verification).
All bulk finished products (tablets & capsules) are inspected and subjected to metal detection prior to being sampled by QC. They are then subject to appropriate disintegration and/or dissolution testing, and potency testing prior to being released to packaging. All liquid and powder products are tested for potency prior to packaging as well. Finally, microbiological testing is performed on all finished products and document reconciliation is completed prior to being released for shipment.
All testing is performed by our trained QC personnel using state of the art laboratory instrumentation including High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), ICP, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AA), gel electrophoresis, FT-IR, Ultra Violet spectrophotometry, Thin Layer chromatography and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).
Unlike many companies that are struggling to meet the new GMP requirements established by the FDA, companies that are being regulated into implementing quality programs, extensive Quality Control has always been part of the corporate fabric of Biotics Research Corporation.
From day one, the mantra of Biotics Research Corporationhas been "Innovation and Quality." Our goals remain unchanged - utilize innovative ideas and carefully researched concepts with advanced techniques to develop products of superior quality and effectiveness - bringing you "The Best of Science and Nature".
