More than just a lab test
Every blood sample counts – because behind each sender is a unique person.
This is the motto of our diligent team of expert advisors, nutritionists and our experienced laboratory staff: every blood sample is processed with full dedication.
Since our establishment, we have maintained high quality standards that exceed current regulations. In particular, a high standard of hygiene and functional precision is our priority.
Independent scientific research and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) enable you – for the benefit of your patients – to take advantage of the “Alcat Technology”.
Innovation: In 2020, the NEW Cellular Nutrition Assays were introduced to the market. Further assays are in development, see below.
Ethics, trust, mutual respect and respect with regard to resources & environment, empathy and an inner thirst for quality with regard to our customers and partners govern all our dealings.
Cell Science Systems GmbH (CSS) is the exclusive Alcat Test provider in Europe for food/chemical sensitivity and related health communication. Independent studies confirm the effectiveness of the Alcat Test method and that direct cellular defense is a scientifically sound way to investigate immunologically complex and often time-delayed food intolerances.
The “Alcat Laboratory” in Potsdam near Berlin is your partner in Europe, the Middle East and in all regions, from where blood samples can reach us within 24-48 hours. You will find further information on our international homepage.
Flagship ALCAT since 1986
The Alcat Test has been clinically validated by independent university studies. It shows a high efficiency in prevention and in patients suffering from inflammatory diseases and a chronically activated immune system. By avoiding inflammatory cell reactions, energy and vitality are often improved. Thus, the test is successfully used by numerous professional athletes and celebrities.
The cellular Alcat Test and the new Cellular Nutrition Assays are adapted to individual requirements, i.e. to how the immune cells react to the addition of a single test substance: Diet and supplements can thus be tailored precisely to individual needs.
Research & Development: The Alcat Test is supported by double-blind studies conducted by independent universities such as Yale School of Medicine, University of N. Illinois, Pavia and Camarino universities, the Baylor Medical College, and others. About 45 research papers are documented in the Scientific Dossier. Current studies:
– 2018-2020: Cellular defense mechanisms and released mitochondrial and nuclear DNA in Alcat reactions (Research Group Germany/USA)
– 2020-2022: Double-blind study on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (Israel Research Group)
– INNOVATION – New in development: Biomarkers for the assessment of metabolic, autoimmune and cardiac disease risks
Food & chemical sensitivity
Alcat Test for food intolerance & chemical sensitivity: Cellular measurement of direct defense reactions of immune cells (inflammation triggers) caused by foods, additives, colourings, pharmaceutical agents, medicinal herbs (phytopharmaceuticals), moulds, and others.
With almost 500 test substances, the Alcat Test offers a very comprehensive range of test panels.
Bioactive cell metabolism tests to investigate nutrient insufficiencies, individually protective antioxidants and the patient-specific antioxidative capacity. Unlike serum testing, the measurement of intracellular needs is considered to reflect a long-term nutrition status.
Nutrition and/or dietary supplements can be tailored to suit the unique needs of a person.
– Methyl Detox Profile: Testing of genetic changes in the methylation pathway; Including nutritional recommendations to optimize detoxification, metabolic pathways and hormone balance functions when appropriate
– CICA: Celiac, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Crohn’s disease Array; Panel to assess GI risk and GI status using genetic, cellular and serological (antibody) markers
– Telomere length test: Telomere length is considered an indicator of “biological aging” – shortened telomeres are associated with aging diseases and are negatively influenced by chronic inflammation
Focus on nutrition: The Cell Science Systems laboratory tests
The company’s European headquarters are located in Potsdam, just south of Berlin (Germany), close to the well-known Babelsberg film studios. At this location we analyze all Alcat Test specimens of patients from Europe, the Middle East, and others, which can be delivered by courier within 24-48 hours.
