About our research services

We have a responsibility to ensure new tests and technology are rapidly translated into clinical and scientific practice for the benefit of patients.

That’s why we offer clinical, forensic and NSW Health Statewide Biobank research services.

These range from basic biomedical science such as biomarker discovery, to more complex verification, validation (efficacy) and utility (effectiveness) studies.

We support research and development including:

  • analytical and/or clinical validation of new tests
  • evaluations of new technology
  • services for research using accredited or unaccredited tests
  • support to store biospecimens in NSW Health’s Statewide Biobank.
