With the addition of the biochemistry lab, the NMRL is now able to collect, process, store and analyze biological samples in-house. The biochemistry lab includes two ThermoFisher Scientific -80 freezers, refrigeration, an on-site Ultra-pure water system, Synergy and MAGPIX systems, and two ThermoFisher centrifuges. The wet-lab space provides the capabilities necessary to analyze blood, saliva, and urine utilizing basic plate assays, ELISA and the multiplex platform to measure biomarkers associated with endocrine, cardiovascular and immune responses. These enhanced capabilities allow the NRML to assess human performance through biological responses to physical and psychological stressors.
