The CLCS Analytical Services group performs both CLIA-approved and Research Use Only (RUO) assays on a variety of common clinical chemistry analyzers, including high throughput instruments. The following instruments are owned by CLCS and available for use.  Instruments used daily are indicated by an *.

  • Roche Diagnostics c501 chemistry analyzer*
  • Roche Diagnostics e601 immunoanalyzer*
  • Beckman Coulter UniCel DxH600 hematology analyzer*
  • Siemens Immulite 1000 immunoanalyzer

We also perform more labor-intensive radioimmunoassays (RIAs) and plate-based ELISA testing on an as-needed basis for researchers. Most any commercially available RIA or ELISA kit can be used for analysis with our gamma counters and plate readers.

-ICN Biomedical 10/600 Plus gamma counter
-Titertek Plus gamma counter
-Bio-Tek ELx 800 ELISA plate reader
-Bio-Tek Powerwave 200 plate reader
