Join us at Vitafoods Europe 2017

On 9-11 May, Elektron Eye Technology will be joining worldwide ingredient manufacturer Kemin at Vitafoods Europe 2017 in Palexpo, Geneva.

The annual event, attracting over 18,500 members of the global nutraceutical industry, will give attendees the opportunity to source ingredients, raw materials, dietary supplements and services to help grow their business. With thousands of innovative products being showcased on the day, including our own MPS II, you’ll be able to gain top advice and expertise from a crowd of industry leaders.

Come and visit Kemin on stand G21 to learn how to maintain your eye health and protect your eyes from blue light overexposure by increasing your MPOD (macular pigment optical density). Kemin creates science-backed ingredients that meet real consumer health needs, with its FloraGLO Lutein revolutionising the supplemental lutein market.

MPOD testing at Vitafoods Europe

On the day, Kemin will be conducting MPOD testing with our state-of-the-art Macular Pigment Screener: MPS II. It is the world’s first fully portable macular screener, enabling the early detection of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) risk anywhere, at any time – meaning we can bring it to you at Vitafoods!

A revolutionary ophthalmic device, the MPS II measures MPOD and enables its ongoing monitoring over time. Proven to deliver reproducible results, the MPS II is innovative and clinically relevant, enabling a preventative approach to managing the global problem of AMD.

AMD is a leading cause of blindness worldwide for which there is currently no cure. Early detection of the conditions and its critical risk factors (like MPOD) is, therefore, crucial in order to allow eye care professionals to take fast, preventative action at a time when it will be most effective.

Taking around 90 seconds per eye to return an MPOD value, the MPS II is fast and efficient. Why not head to Kemin at G21 to have your MPOD measured by the MPS II? In the process, you can learn more about the device and the science and see just how quick and easy the test is for both operator and patient.

Blue Light kit demonstrations will also be taking place throughout the day, so you can also see Kemin’s FloraGLO Lutein’s ability to filter blue light in action.

FloraGLO Lutein – the gold standard

Since its launch more than 20 years ago, the FloraGLO Lutein ingredient has set the gold standard for the lutein market, with proven efficacy in over 80 human clinical trials. It is also the only lutein brand which is safe for babies and therefore selected for infant nutrition.

As part of Kemin’s longstanding tradition at Vitafoods, you are also invited to drop at lunchtime, on any day of the event and enjoy a glass of port with us. We look forward to seeing you there!
