A timeline of Immunotec milestones

It all started with the immune system. Over forty years ago, scientists based in Montreal, Canada, discovered the role of a specially-prepared whey protein isolate (now famous as Immunocal) in raising glutathione, a molecule often referred to as the body's master antioxidant. By the mid-1990s, the scientists had teamed up with veteran network marketing entrepreneur, Chuck Roberts, Dieter Beer, and John Molson, of the notable Canadian Molson family, to found the company now known to the world as Immunotec.
