Research Tests

All research tests must be coordinated through the Metabolomics Program Director, Dr. Teodoro Bottiglieri. Research tests for individual patients may be requested by completing and submitting the Research Requisition Form or a DNA Requisition Form for all single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping. For some tests, we may be unable to perform single-sample testing and tests may only be performed on a batch basis. Custom analysis of metabolites is available and will require completing a Project Intake Form. Please contact Teodoro Bottiglieri, Ph.D., prior to requesting tests and submitting samples.
