Clinical Analysis Suite

Our laboratory specializes in research support and provides a broad spectrum of services such as:

  • Biomarker extraction
  • Blood/urine analysis
  • Cellular culture
  • Fluorescence assay
  • Immunoassay (Luminex, ELISA)
  • Microscopy
  • Molecular biology (DNA/RNA purification mutagenesis, protein expression)
  • Sterile environment
  • Ultracentrifugation

List of services

Our team is committed to providing high quality research services to ensure satisfaction for both academic and industrial researchers. Our work often starts at the project planning stage by providing you with advanced technical consultation to either select or develop appropriate methods depending on your research needs and cost analysis. Once the protocol is validated and ready to go, the clinical analysis team will perform the data acquisition applying the appropriate quality controls so that you are confident in the results.

Supervisor, Clinical Analysis Suite – Marie-Eve Rivard

20160407 PERFORM Marie Eve Rivard 164

Marie-Eve joined the PERFORM team in October 2015 as the supervisor of the Clinical Analysis Suite. Her hands-on approach to running the laboratory, her wide breadth of technical experience spanning over a 10-year career in both academic and private labs and her determination to maximize the incredible resources available in the Clinical Analysis Suite has made this platform more accessible to researchers than ever before. Aside from developing new research services, Marie-Eve also supervises lab technicians and students, oversees external projects, ensures quality control and disseminates final results and reports to the project leads.

Marie-Eve received a BSc and MSc (honours) in biochemistry from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
