If you’re wondering, “what sample types should I collect?” or “who will analyze my samples?” look no further than the Dahms Clinical Research Unit (DCRU) Analytical Laboratory at University Hospitals. The DCRU Analytic Lab is part of the Clinical Research Center under the direction of Dr. Grace McComsey.
The DCRU Analytical Lab provides consultation and testing of research samples such as serum, plasma, saliva, urine, CSF, and breastmilk for a variety of different analytes using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Other services include DNA extraction, PBMC isolation, and long-term sample storage and tracking in 24/7-monitored -70°C freezers.
The ELISA service provided by the DCRU Analytical Lab is a standardized test that measures how much of an antibody, peptide, protein, or hormone is in a biological sample. ELISA is the preferred technique in many cases due to its sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy.
The DCRU Analytical Lab has 30 years of experience in ELISA analysis and will provide you with a customized experience tailored to your project’s needs. We provide the highest quality testing in the latest environment and go out of our way to maintain sample integrity.
