I am Manager of the Human Nutritional Chemistry Service Laboratory (HNCSL) located in room 251 in the Human Ecology Building. This lab includes an IMMULITE 2000 Immunoassay system, a Magpix Multiplex Analyzer System, Dimension Xpand Plus Integrated Chemistry System, Synergy II Plate Reader and Plate Washer. Hematology equipment includes a Beckman Coulter AcTDiff2 hematology analyzer. Chromatographic equipment includes an Acquity UPC2 convergence chromatographic system with photodiode array detector, a Thermo LC/MS/MS with a TSQ Quantum Ultra mass spectrometer coupled with Thermo Accela Autosampler and LC pump, and a Shimadzu GC/MS/MS with a TQ 8030 mass Spectrometer coupled with GC 2010 and Shimadzu AOC-20i autosampler.
This fee for service laboratory is available to the Cornell University community as well as institutions outside the university.
