Biological sampling

Blood test

Our equipment in this area includes:

 

  • Phlebotomy facilities for the collection  of both venous and fingerprick blood samples
  • Urine and saliva testing equipment 
  • Two Reflotron desktop blood analysers, a Helena Haematoflouromter and a range of immunoassay analysis kits.

We can also:

  • Analyse a wide range of biological parameters, including (but not exclusively) glucose, iron, cortisol, cholesterol, haemoglobin, zinc protoporphyrin, 5-HIAA (serotonin function) and potassium.
  • Process and store samples at a stable -85C, either for analysis on-site or elsewhere.
