Physiology

Biochemistry Core Laboratory

The Biochemical Assay Core Laboratory was established over 25 years ago and is a professionally staffed resource facility that provides consolidated and highly specialized biochemical assays from a range of sample (human and animal) and tissue (serum, urine, tissue) types. We use HPLC equipment, an Alera Analyzer, a flame photometer, and other equipment to perform our analyses. The list below represents ongoing available assays. If you would like an assay performed that is not listed please contact Lisa Henderson at lhender@mcw.edu or (414) 955-8569. It is our goal to provide assistance! We work on a fee-for-service basis for researchers inside and outside MCW.
