Tissue analysis

Biomarker Services

We have expertise in the analysis of saliva for a range of hormones and immunological markers, for example the hormones cortisol and testosterone and the mucosal antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA). 

The majority of the analyses we run use the sensitive Enzyme Linked Immunsorbent Assay (ELISA) and specialist robotic equipment.

We can help with collecting, storing and transporting saliva, as well as with the interpretation and analysis of the data.
