IGF-1 tests

Ageing bionet readers,
       Does anyone know of laboratories that have a more economical test
for IGF-1 levels in plasma?  My accidental discovery of a cheap nutritional
way to directly stimulate the liver to produce a burst of IGF-1 increases
the need for IGF-1 testing, both to optimize the stimulus and to see that
it is working in a particular individual.  Since the liver is a pretty
dependable organ, the method should work in virtually everyone, but it
doesn't hurt to verify it.  Perhaps the increased demand for IGF-1 testing
will spur development of a more economical test.
Regards, Ralph L. Samson
