About us

Genox Corporation

Genox Corporation, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is a subsidiary of NIKKEN SEIL, Co. Ltd., Japan. The products offered by us are made in Japan either by our parent company, at the Japan Institute for the Control of Aging (JaICA), a division of Nikken SEIL Co., Ltd. or by our business partner, at the Life Science Products Division of the Nippon Oils and Fats Corporation, Japan. Genox is the distributor of these products for users in North and South America.

Our main line of business is in the "Development of Novel Oxidative Stress Biomarkers for the Advancement of Basic and Applied Research Related to the Mechanism of Aging and to Understand the Role of Oxidative Stress in Biology and Medicine." Our main objective is to take advantage of the remarkable progress that has been made in this relatively new scientific field, and to utilize this knowledge base for the development of: 

  • Cost-effective methods of assessing oxidative stress and its determinants in biological systems
  • Methods to measure oxidative stress that can be applied to the improvement of the functionality of processed foods, agricultural produce, dietary nutrient supplements, and pet food formulations

The company was organized in October 1991 as a Minnesota Corporation by a small group of investors, along with Dr. Richard G. Cutler. Dr. Cutler is a well-known scientist in the field of molecular gerontology.  Prior to founding Genox, Dr. Cutler spent 18 years as a research chemist at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In 1994 Genox moved its business location from Minneapolis, MN, to Baltimore, MD.

During the past decade Genox has served the scientific community by providing to researchers products and analytical testing services for the measurement of biomarkers that indicate oxidative stress levels. 

It is our mission to be of service to the scientific community by developing fast, accurate, useful, and cost-effective oxidative stress related products so that the basic and applied research in this field can progress at a faster pace.
