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.
Laboratory processing services
Our laboratory has the ability to perform CLIA waived tests including:
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.
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:
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.
Apart from the private exam rooms, our facility contains numerous conference rooms which further allow us to have confidential conversations with subjects while adhering to all HIPAA guidelines.
A metabolic kitchen
Our metabolic kitchen is utilized for our clinical trials as well as sensory testing. This kitchen contains four stoves, four ovens, walk-in fridge, walk-in freezer, microwaves, and everything else that is necessary to accurately conduct our clinical trials and consumer sensory testing.
