What we do
We are able to measure a wide range of biomarkers from human saliva, urine and blood (including blood spots) samples to accompany multidisciplinary behavioural and populational research studies.
Saliva is advantageous as it is non-invasive, straightforward to collect with minimal training and can be collected independently by research participants.
We are currently validating optimal collection methodology for saliva research.
Saliva can be used to assess levels of the following hormones.
- Alpha Amylase
We can also measure levels of cotinine (a marker of tobacco smoke exposure) and C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation).
