How to Evaluate Oxidative Stress &
Antioxidants Activities?

From Initiation to Improvement…

In collaboration with the International Society of Antioxidants (ISANH), we are pleased to announce the organization of the  workshop dedicated to Oxidative Stress and Antioxidants Evaluation – How to Evaluate Oxidative Stress & Antioxidants activities?.

Workshops Dates:

  • June 11, 2021
  • October 13, 2021 (one day before Paris Redox 2021 Congress)
  • November 26, 2021


Among the sessions which will be addressed:

  • Present the latest advances and perspectives on oxidative stress and antioxidants
  • Present all methods used to evaluate Oxidative Stress & Antioxidants Activities in different matrices and models
  • Discuss the different methods of measuring oxidative stress in humans and present the controversies related to these methods

During this workshop, an important part will be dedicated to the presentation of the all methods of evaluations of antioxidants in food, cosmetics and food supplements (polyphenols, catechins, phenolic acids, etc.).

Special Session: Methods for evaluating antioxidant activity in humans
Presentation of methods for measuring protein alteration (glycation / carbonylation, etc.), alteration of lipids (lipoperoxidation) and DNA (8-OH-guanosine, etc.).

Discussion and Critics on methods  used to evaluate  antioxidant capacity
Actually, there are different methods for evaluating antioxidant capacity and oxidative stress. However, these methods are not standardized and can vary greatly from one laboratory to another.

Come with your project!
Do you have a product, an ingredient or a food supplement…? Do you want to measure its antioxidant capacity?
Come with your project, we will discuss it and offer you the best suitable method.

Looking forward to meeting you very soon.
