Clinical Chemistry & Biochemistry

This section covers the clinical chemistry tests done on the Roche Cobas c311, and enzymatic/colorimetric biochemical assays using a 96-well plate reader.

The Cobas c311 Clinical Chemistry Analyzer tests:

  • 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 Cobas c311 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.
