Clinical Chemistry & Biochemistry

This section covers the clinical chemistry tests done on the Vitros 350 Chemistry Analyzer, and enzymatic/colorimetric biochemical assays using a 96-well plate reader.

The VITROS 350 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer uses a dry microslide technology for measuring analytes in serum, plasma, urine, and CSF. The VITROS system is currently used by the CHOP clinical lab which is very satisfied with its performance. We are offering:

  • Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP);
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP);
  • Liver Function Panel;
  • Lipid Panel;
  • and many single tests (glucose, creatinine, iron, etc).

Some assays are performed in real time (within 3 days), while others are performed in a batched fashion using frozen samples. Pricing varies according to the number of samples in one batch. Please contact Dr. Ren at renx@email.chop.edu for an estimate.  

Even though the Vitros 350 is IVD (in vitro diagnostics)-qualified, our data cannot be used for patient management, and will be used purely for research purpose.  TCL supports clinical research by providing high quality research data at a price lower than that from CLIA-certified labs. We also require much less sample volume in our tests compared with the hospital labs.
