NOW Named Top Employer by Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Tribune Names NOW® a Winner of the Chicago Top Workplaces 2019 Award

Bloomingdale, IL (November 14, 2019) – NOW has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Chicago Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures multiple aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, among others.

NOW has been honored many times before in recognition of worker satisfaction, including both regional and national Best and Brightest Company to Work For® awards.

"While we appreciate the recognition that comes from awards based upon employee surveys, more importantly it is a helpful way for us to better understand the things that engage employees at NOW, as well as how we can improve," said Jim Emme, NOW CEO. "It helps us become stronger and better understand the collective feedback from employees, and contributes to our low rate of staff turnover."

"The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration," said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. "Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results."

NOW Publishes Krill Arsenic Detection Method

NOW® Scientists Publish Test Method to Accurately Measure Inorganic Arsenic in Krill Oil

Bloomingdale, IL (November 13, 2019) – Members of the NOW Methods Development team have published a test method that accurately identifies the presence and measures levels of inorganic arsenic in krill oil: Arsenic Speciation in Krill and Other Marine Oils by Liquid Chromatography−Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry by Katarzyna Banaszewski, Anna Plocicka-Okladlo, and Aaron Secrist (Spectroscopy Volume 34, Issue 9, 8-17).

Arsenic is a ubiquitous element present in the environment, and its toxicity depends not only on total concentration, but more importantly on the chemical form of the element. Inorganic arsenic species are considered to be the most toxic, whereas other organically bound species are considered to have lower or no toxicity in humans.

In late 2017, the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) released a monographed standard to help promote quality krill oil identification and purity testing. Included in these requirements, along with standards for EPA, DHA, phospholipids and astaxanthin, is a limit for inorganic arsenic. However, the method defined in the FCC monograph, which is not able to accurately differentiate between the chemical species of arsenic, is inferior to higher sensitivity and specificity speciation methods, such as HPLC-ICP-MS. Additionally, the complexity of the krill oil matrix requires suitable sample preparation to liberate arsenic species and allow for precise quantitation of inorganic arsenic.

To improve upon the FCC monograph, the NOW Methods Development team conducted a study to develop and validate a procedure for determination of inorganic arsenic in krill oil samples and thus contribute to a more accurate risk assessment analysis for krill oil supplements. The specificity of this method allows for more accurate inorganic arsenic determination compared to other published methods.

"We determined that available test methods did not go far enough in ensuring that krill oil we were sourcing for our supplements met our purity and safety standards," said Aaron Secrist, NOW’s Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs. "We published the method in keeping with NOW’s long standing practice of sharing test methods we develop with the industry."

NOW Methods Development Supervisor Katie Banaszewski gave a talk on the elemental speciation of arsenic in krill oil during a scientific session of the 2019 AOAC conference in Denver, CO earlier this year.

The study may be accessed here.
