Assay Catalog and Pricing


The displayed assay catalog includes the Core's most frequently requested tests. If an analyte, panel, or biological tissue of interest is not listed, please submit a special request via our assay request form. A member of the Yerkes BMC team will contact you to discuss the needs of your project. The Core validates new assays for investigators on a case-by-case basis based on sample number and potential use by multiple investigators and/or projects.



Biomarkers Core Annual Rates

The annual rates listed below are effective September 1st, 2020 (FY21) and are provided for budgeting purposes only. Investigators will be charged current rates at time of service. Rates for longitudinal studies should project a 3% increase each year beginning September 1st. Please contact Kelly Ethun when budgeting for NIH-supported projects and other multi-year funding awards as all rates are contingent upon third party costs for reagents and are subject to change greater than 3% annually. All rates are based on duplicate determination for each analyte per sample.
