Participants will be required to attend our Newstead Clinic (Brisbane) to provide blood samples during the day. Depending on the study, the time spent in our clinic can range between 5 to 13 hours. All studies will then require you return for a single sample the following morning which takes approximately 5-10 minutes. None of our studies require any overnight stays! You will return home to sleep in your own bed at the end of the first day and then return the next morning for your single blood sample.
Food and use of fast internet will be supplied during the required hours. We also have a range of jigsaw puzzles and Lego.
Participants are paid between $100 and $250 for each study. The amount paid is dependent upon the time requirements for each study.
Participants will be provided with the trial product to be taken upon arrival (after registration). You will then receive a cannula, from which the small blood samples (usually 5-10ml) are taken during the day. This is so multiple ‘needle pricks’ are not required, and participants are as comfortable as possible during the day.
Trials are conducted on readily available vitamins and nutrients such as vitamin C, CoQ10, ginkgo, resveratrol and fish oil, and will be taken within safe dosage ranges.
Members of the same household are welcome and may sit together during the day. Most participants bring a personal device (tablet, laptop) and either work, study, play games or binge-watch favourite shows. We do require that headphones are worn so other participants are not disrupted.
We will supply breakfast, lunch and dinner (if required), as well as snacks during the day.
