The IGL Labor is seen as an innovator, both analytically and methodically as well as from a medical perspective. Continuous training ensures the high standard of quality for the future.
For 10 years, the IGL laboratory has maintained a quality management system that complies with the requirements of the 2008 guidelines of the German Medical Association and supplements them in numerous points. Furthermore, quality and competence are checked and confirmed in regular expert assessments.
The private entrepreneurial character of the company allows us to modify procedures in all areas of investigation and to establish new procedures in order to advance research and laboratory routine.
- The internal quality controls are carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the German Medical Association (RiliBÄK).
- External quality assurance is regularly ensured by split samples
Information on the measurement uncertainty of the quantitative test method is available on request at any time.
The measurement uncertainty summarizes the scattering of measurement results, which arises from the fact that certain deviations from the "true" values occur in each individual process within an analysis run. The information relates to the analytical precision and correctness.
The IGL laboratory participates in or initiates testing using split samples. Split sample analysis can be defined as the analysis of a sample by a primary method (method used by laboratory x) and a comparator method (a similar method used by a y-certified laboratory).
Split samples can be used to determine the following:
- the relative accuracy of a given test method
- the linearity of an instrument compared to a reference instrument
- as a surrogate for proficiency testing
- to check the accuracy of testing of non-regulated analytes for which the laboratory does not participate in proficiency testing.
We are most interested in generating as high quality as possible. To achieve this, we make use of state-of-the-art equipment, such as:
- The latest analysis kits
- the most modern methods in chromatography, e.g. mass spectrometry, gas chromatography, intracellular pH measurement, etc.
- regular and intensified training of our staff at the highest level
- regular in-house training and colloquia
- attendance of congresses and international seminars
- exchange of experience with other international scientists
- University connection
- complete, automated documentation of all results from analyses, calibrators and standards
The IGL laboratory refers to the difference in results between two instruments analysing the same samples. Differences are caused by different instrument technology and manufacturing, the use of different methods to perform the analysis or different reagents. We consider the analysis of split samples important because the bias between some instruments is large enough to affect the laboratory's assessment. Ideally, the comparison of results of an analyte between laboratories should be performed on identical instruments, using the same procedure and reagents.
"For me, the IGL laboratory has become indispensable in order to qualitatively and quantitatively detect environmental exposures on a cellular level and to show the patient their relevance for the individual recovery process. This serves both the detection and elimination of health-relevant exposures, as well as the indication and follow-up of detoxification measures.
I also use the IGL lab to gain an understanding of necessary behavioral changes. As a result, many patients actually change their consumption behavior, which benefits individual health and that of the planet.
I also particularly value the opportunity to discuss individual reports in person in order to identify possible therapeutic approaches."
Practice for Holistic Medicine
"I got to know the IGL laboratory in March 2018 as part of a cell membrane therapy training course. I was immediately enthusiastic about the diagnostic results and the therapeutic measures based on them. The enthusiasm continues to this day, and I can no longer imagine my daily practice without diagnostics in the IGL laboratory."
Praxis Dr. med. Bernd Antonius Staden
"I am very satisfied with the laboratory, the accessibility, contact and now also with the customer center. Everything always went quickly and wonderfully when I had questions."
Dr. Bruce Hoffman
Hoffman Centre for Integrative and Functional Medicine, Canada
"IGL is the only laboratory I am aware of which can shed light on Robert Naviaux’ s ground breaking work on the cell danger response, mitochondrial function, as well as reveal toxic insults to the cell membrane and mitochondrial DNA. In my clinical opinion and practice, there is no other tests that comes close to what the IGL test reveals. It has been an absolute game changer in how I approach complex patient diagnosis and treatment."
Dr. Werner Vosloo
Restorative Health Clinic
"Working with IGL and incorporating cell-focused epigenetic testing into my approach to chronic disease has enabled my clinic to drive much more consistent, positive results in identifying and also correcting the real reasons why people with chronic disease do not respond to most treatments. IGL Epigenetic testing helps us understand the status of the cell, DNA, mitochondria, redox system and more, with demonstration of intra-cellular toxicity which appears to be much more helpful clinically as compared to using urinary excretion of environmental toxins including mycotoxins. IGL testing also gives us a significant advantage in doing a much better job with preventive and longevity medicine - ensuring tissue toxicity and the effects of the totality of our exposure on the cell is quantified with clear clinically actionable responses to the test results - truly knowing the effects of epigenetic influence opens to the door to correcting and improving our approach."
Natural health center
We therapists can only be grateful that this innovative laboratory with its unique range of services exists and makes the various toxins visible and thus treatable for us and our patients. The best laboratory diagnostics, which should definitely not be missing in today's holistic practice.
The achievements of Mr. Stefan Moellhausen deserve the highest recognition!
