Laboratory Services for Researchers

At Nemours, we offer clinical lab services and a pediatric diagnostic center to support the efforts of clinicians and researchers, both internal and external. We staff a wide array of labs, which contribute key scientific and diagnostic information for a wealth of medical areas.

Nemours Biomedical Research Core Labs

The Nemours Biomedical Research Core Labs in Delaware provide highly specialized equipment, techniques, and staff expertise to Nemours researchers and clinicians, as well as external investigators. Five distinct labs contribute to important work being performed in fields such as genetic disease, cancer, skeletal dysplasia, and obesity-related cardiometabolic disease. The labs are equipped with up-to-date, sophisticated equipment, and run by highly trained, experienced research professionals who can generate and interpret the wealth of data available.
