Medical background

Discovered and developed by medical doctors

The AGE Scanner technology was discovered and developed by specialist MD’s from the University Medical Centre in Groningen (the Netherlands). They discovered the fluorescent properties of AGEs and developed a method to measure them using a tiny bit of UV light. This development and its scientific validation involved a great many scientific studies over a large number of years.


Related to many chronic diseases

Medical specialists did a lot of reasearch. They compared the amount of AGEs in human tissue with the fluorescent signal. There appeared to be a strong correlation. After that, lots of research was done to see if the intensity of the fluorescent signal correlates with all sorts of chronic diseases. That connection was confirmed many times. Due to all of these research findings we now only have to measure the fluorescence to assess if a person has an increased risk to develop a chronic disease. Over the years this type of research has been replicated by numerous medical specialists and researches the world over.

AGEs are at the centre of attention

Every year thousands of new scientific studies on how AGEs develop in the body and their effect on our health are being published. With every new study we learn more about the role AGEs play in getting older and developing diseases.
