Nutrition Evaluation Laboratory

The Nutrition Evaluation Laboratory (NEL) is a centralized laboratory with a comprehensive analytical program in clinical chemistry and biochemistry.

Focused on quality, accuracy, precision, resourcefulness, and customer satisfaction, the NEL offers scientific investigators a comprehensive biochemical test menu, specimen handling services and analytical study design assistance.

The NEL is comprised of three units, the Clinical Core Unit, the Specialized Chemistry Unit, and the Specimen Processing Unit. The Clinical Core Unit provides results for hematology, blood chemistry, and urinalysis procedures. The Specialized Chemistry Unit provides tailored analytical services for measurement of water-soluble vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins, lipids, proteins, amino acids, carotenoids, antioxidants, hormones, enzymes, cytokines, hematological parameters, and macro and micro minerals from human body tissues, animal tissues and food. The Specimen Processing Unit receives, processes, stores, and tracks biochemical specimens.
