Our Research Facilities

Designed with clinical trials in mind.

Built in 2017, our newest facility has over 10,000 square feet of dedicated spaces for research, such as:

facilities_cognitive-func-test-lab

Cognitive function testing laboratory

If your clinical study requires cognitive testing, our facility contains a lab with ten computers that can be loaded with any program of your choice. Each of the stations contain dividers to ensure subjects are focused on the task at hand as well as a white noise machine to ensure consistency between different sessions.

facilities_lab-processing

Laboratory processing services

Our laboratory has the ability to perform CLIA waived tests including: 

  • Pregnancy tests 
  • Fingerstick glucose
  • Fingerstick HBA1C
  • Cholesterol testing

 

Our lab has two refrigerated centrifuges, three -80 degree freezers, a fume hood, a standard refrigerator/freezer and two Cholestech instruments.  Our lab staff is very knowledgeable with collecting and processing a variety of different biological samples such as blood, urine, stool, saliva, as well as conducting bioavailability testing.

facilities_private-exam-room

Private exam rooms

We have three private exam rooms that allow us to communicate with all of our subjects in a confidential manner compliant with all HIPAA regulations. Our exam rooms contain all of the necessary medical equipment in order to capture valuable data for your clinical trial including: 

  • Adjustable exam tables
  • Allyn Welch blood pressure machines
  • Electrocardiogram machines
  • Calibrated Body mass scales
  • Otoscopes, laryngoscopes, and numerous other medical supplies necessary.

Exercise testing rooms

The treatment room can be converted into an exercise testing room if your clinical trial so requires. We own two Parvo Medics TrueOne 2400 metabolic carts which can be used for cardiopulmonary stress testing, indirect calorimetry, and maximal O2 consumption. The metabolic carts are connected to an exercise bike.
