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.

Core Resources

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.

Diagnostic Testing

Diganostic Testing

We also have several certified diagnostic testing laboratories to help physicians make diagnoses and decide on treatment. These services are purely diagnostic in nature, and not designed for research use. They’re available only to qualified clinicians, internal and external, not to the general public. The labs cover a wide range of medical areas.
