The MEU has extensive experience in the handling of a wide range of human matrices including:
- Induced sputum samples
- Whole blood samples (e.g. PBMC, ex-vivo stimulation)
- Nasal samples (e.g. nasal lavage and nasal brushes)
- Bronchoscopy samples (e.g. biopsies, bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial brushes)
In addition to this, we have developed expertise in the validated measurement of biomarkers (cellular and soluble) using a diverse range of techniques including differential cell counting, immunohistochemistry, ELISA and Luminex.
We are able to offer a bespoke service in the development of these assays tailored to meet the clients’ requirements.
