About AGEs (Advanced Glycation Endproducts)
AGEs are a result of a chain of chemical reaction after an initial glycation. AGEs normally accumulate slowly over a person’s lifetime in tissues with slow turnover. But this process occurs more rapidly in patients with conditions such as diabetes mellitus, renal failure and cardiovascular disease.
These accumulated AGEs are very important in the development of diabetes and its complications.
Moreover they are valuable predictors of future cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
AGEs play a key role in the pathogenesis of many age-related diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and renal failure.
This new technology is the answer to the need for measuring AGEs without the disadvantages of the existing methods which are time consuming, expensive, lack specificity and invasive.
This state of the art device provides a simple non-invasive solution, which allows you to determine the AGE level within 10 seconds, by means of fluorescence techniques.
