While the CMBR Laboratory Core has an impressive amount of resources, one of the continuing goals of the CMBR, is to provide services internally that would usually need to be out-sourced to other hospitals or research/analysis centers. To that end, we must continue expanding our Laboratory capabilities. If after reviewing what it has to offer, and an assay or protocol would be desired but is not currently available, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the type of procedure you would use the CMBR Laboratory Core for, if they had the capability and it will be added to this "wish-list". We will take this list into consideration when expanding the Core and ordering new assays and protocols. Investigators have already asked for analysis of:
Brain Natiuretic Peptide (BNP)
5-HT Transporter Gene-linked polymorphic region analyses
Adrenaline & Noradrenaline (urinary)
Just because an item is listed, should not prevent you from emailing that you'd like it as well. If enough investigators would like a certain assay, we'll make sure to notify our Laboratory Core Directors, and provide funding to make sure it becomes available.
