Physiology

Biochemistry

The Biochemical Core Laboratory was established over 25 years ago as a resource facility to provide a consolidated, highly specialized, well equipped, and professionally staffed unit capable of performing a variety of immunoassay and other biochemical assays as required by a broad range of research interests by faculty of the Department of Physiology. This core resource now is available on a fee-for-service basis for all MCW faculty.
