PEMT Prices


Contacts:
Pre‐analytic evaluation and molecular testing (PEMT): Qing Ren, MD, PhD at 303‐724‐3087

Prices:
The below list represents multiple different possible services provided by the Molecular Pathology (Pre‐analytic Evaluation and Molecular Testing) Shared Resource. For anything requiring multiple steps/services, we strongly encourage you to contact the laboratory for assistance in developing your budget, as the exact steps needed for your project may require review of the project requirements, specimen types, etc.

Prices are based on sample sizes that do not require project management time on the part of the laboratory. At the laboratory director's discretion, a project may be deemed sufficiently large to require additional personnel effort or custom reagent quotes, in which case custom pricing will be provided based on the individual project. Please contact the laboratory for additional information.
