Bioanalyte Core at CWRU

Overview of Services

Bioanalyte Core Services started as a cytokine core about 15 years ago. It has been fostered into being a Core that focuses on bioanalytes from quantification, to synthesis, to function. The bioanalytes cover not only cytokines but any molecule that requires quantification such as enzymes, sugars, etc. We provide the interactive development of the bioanalysis of the molecule of interest in the context of the studies of interest. Each client has the opportunity to meet with the core director to explain the project and overall goals so that the assays that are utilized for the evalaution can be optimized for the greatest possibiity of success. The agreement of the analaytes is then followed by our staff reaching out for specific quotes and getting our clients the best deal on their assays. We do extensive evaluation of each study to assure we understand the samples and how to best run them analytically. Samples are logged into the system, how we will analyze them is detailed followed by planning the study.
