New Opportunity for Practitioners to Receive Omega-3 Blood Spot Test
Watsonville, CA (February 26, 2013) Nordic Naturals® and Lipid Technologies have developed a partnership to ensure that practitioners have easy access to the Holman Omega-3 Blood Spot Test for their patients. Thanks to advances in laboratory science, the Holman Omega-3 Blood Spot Test delivers a fast, easy and accurate measurement of a person’s omega-3 levels, which can aid in making informed choices about diet and supplementation.
“Through this exclusive agreement between Nordic Naturals and Lipid Technologies, licensed health care practitioners are now able to open a lab account with Lipid and receive complimentary testing materials,” announced Dr. Doug Bibus, Director of Lipid Technologies, LLC. “Practitioners only pay when their patients decide to test and submit samples.” Both companies are hoping that the increased accessibility of this important diagnostic tool will rapidly open the doors for new practitioners to bring omega-3 testing protocols into their practice to help their patients eliminate omega-3 deficiencies.
Nordic Naturals will warehouse and ship the test kits to practitioners and Lipid Labs will process and deliver the test results. In addition, Nordic Naturals will be providing free educational collateral for licensed practitioners and patients.
“Optimal tissue concentrations of omega-3s are essential to health,” said Monique Wellise, Nordic Naturals Professional Division Sales Manager. “As a brand that specializes in omega-3 oils and a division that serves the needs of health care professionals, our objective is to truly partner with practitioners through programs and products, and the use of educational tools that drive patient success with omega-3s. This unique endeavor with Lipid Technologies is a critical component to our ‘True Partnership Difference™.’ “
