Clinical Laboratory

The Clinical Laboratory is a full-service in-house laboratory that provides diagnostic support for both clinical and research requests. It mimics the day-to-day operation of a human clinical laboratory including the quality control and compliant regulations followed by the human labs. Our laboratory operates under GLP regulations and has three licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientists. Both manual and automated testing have been validated in nonhuman primates and reference values are available for all tests performed in the Clinical Laboratory. Over thirty years of experience in nonhuman primate diagnostic testing enables the Clinical Laboratory to be a knowledgeable resource to consult on test interpretation as well as testing recommendations.
