National Jewish Health CTRC Inflammation & Immunology Core Lab

Our focus is specialized immunologic assays relevant to immunity and inflammation and not clinical diagnostic assays. We have access to coordinate with the National Jewish Health clinical immunology labs with in-house pricing, providing investigators access to unique immunology and inflammation assays.

All services are provided as fee-for-service resources.
