The ZIRP offers a variety of analyses for the biochemical analysis of biological fluids (e.g. serum, plasma, urine, CSF). Besides an automated blood gas analyser which can be used self supported a platform for biochemical profiling is provided containing a high throughput automated laboratory analyser, an osmometer and an analytical service for several specific analyses, e.g. for urine parameters. The analyses cover most of the usual biological tests for different organs/systems - exactly similar to tests performed in the clinics. All described analyzers work with small volume samples, particularly adapted for small animal models (mice & rats).
Additionally, sample collection services are provided ranging from practical advice for appropriate sampling techniques or support during sample collection to the independent collection of sample series (blood, urine) as a part of study execution.
