Your cells might be aging faster than you are, and new tests purport to help you find out. A few companies are offering mail-order testing to measure the length of people’s telomeres.
A recent study has once again found a possible link between telomere shortening and an increased risk of disease.
In a Thursday press release Life Length, a leading Spain-based biotechnology company specializing in the field of telomeres research technology, announced an agreement with Age Diagnostics Laboratories, Inc (“ADL”) to offer telomere testing nationwide in the US to both doctors and patients. This partnership will provide a location in the US where blood and tissue samples will be collected before being relayed to Life Length’s location in Europe for analysis.
