In today’s post, I’m going to talk to you about Immunotec, which happens to be a very good network marketing company.
By the time you have finished reading this post, you will have a better understanding of their history, the company leadership team, the compensation plan, and their top-selling products. Keep in mind, I am in no way affiliated with the company.
I am providing this information so you can be completely educated before purchasing any Immunotec products or becoming an Immunotec independent representative.
Immunotec’s headquarters are in Quebec, Canada. They also have offices in Commerce, California and Mexico City.
The History Behind Immunotec
Immunotec, Inc. was founded in Canada in 1996. But, the science behind the company’s product line took place many years prior.
In the 1970’s, Dr. Gustavo Bounous and several other people from McGill University in Montreal, Canada were studying the effects of whey protein on the immune system of humans.
Without diving to deep into the technical side, I will just say that Dr. Bounous became famous for his research and the discovery of how the proper formula would enhance glutathione levels in humans, which would make their immune systems stronger.
Dr. Bounous worked endlessly developing that “perfect” formula… 15-years endlessly to give you an idea.
In 1993, Immunotec’s flagship product was trademarked under the name Immunocal.
But, how could he market this product? After all, Dr. Bounous was a scientist and did not look at himself as an entrepreneur. While searching for a laboratory to rent, he met Dieter Beer who owned a building and was completely impressed by the work Dr. Bounous was doing.
Dieter saw the possibilities and suggested a business relationship. Soon after, Dieter introduced the Dr. to a network marketing expert, Chuck Roberts.
As a result, Dieter and Chuck became the founders of Immunotec Research and the wheels started in 1996.
Growth was slow at first, but steady. Much of this was because the company was primarily focused on selling products, and not as much on building a network of independent distributors.
Immunotec’s Leadership Team
The leadership team behind Immunotec, Inc. has a lot of direct selling experience. As a matter of fact, the current CEO of Immunotec was Executive Director of the United States’ Direct Selling Education Foundation for 4 years.
These are the current leaders of Immunotec:
- CEO Charles Orr
- CFO and Vice President Patrick Montpetit
- COO Robert Felton
- VP of Research and Development John Molson
- VP Latin America Gabriela Moreno
- VP Sales David Marshall
- VP Marketing Mimi Cohen
- VP Regulatory Affairs David Pelletier
The Immunotec Compensation Plan
There is not a lot of info on the company website about the compensation plan. They do state you can earn money via 6 ways, which are:
- Retail profits
- Customer auto-ship wholesale profits
- Residual commissions and rank advancements
- Business builder bonuses
- Moving up bonuses
- and Upline moving up bonuses
One reference site states that there is no fee to sign up as a distributor but you need to purchase a starter pack, which is around $250 for the smallest one. This site also says that the volume that you must sell monthly to attain commissions is high. Keep in mind, I have no way to verify that.

Immunotec Top 7 Products

Using various online reviews and sales figures, I find the top-selling products are:
It is the company’s flagship product and is still the top-selling Immunotec product.
It is whey protein with cysteine that contains the building blocks for the human immune system to manufacture glutathione. This product helps to build muscle mass while also supporting a stronger immune system.
#2: Probiotic 3+ With Cranberry
Many companies sell prebiotics and probiotics separate. This product has both and also has cranberry to help you keep a healthy urinary tract. This product is great for your complete digestive functions. It is a top-selling product.
#3: PNT 200
Have you ever felt that feeling of calm by drinking a warm glass of milk? Just watch a baby relax when they get some heated milk into their body.
The relaxing ingredient in that warm milk relieves stress and calms the inner soul. Immunotec researchers found that active ingredient and put it into this supplement.

This product contains a proprietary blend of ingredients that are known to reduce the signs of aging. They consist of:

Many people have claimed a definite help in their life after purchasing this product.
#7: MiForm Meal Replacement Shakes
These come in either chocolate or vanilla. They come in individual packets so you do not have to measure out each serving.
There are only 230 calories per serving, but it has all the nutrients you need to be satisfied. With whey protein and a wide range of vitamins and minerals, the MiForm shakes are a top-selling product.
Immunotec has been experiencing amazing growth in the last few years and I predict we will see this continue to happen in the near future. It’ s a great company with great products and a great leadership team.
Some reviews I have seen online have complained the products were to expensive, but as I researched the pricing, I do not see it out of line. After all, you get what you pay for.
