Bioanalytical Laboratory

A Shared Resource and Service Center Laboratory


The Bioanalytical Laboratory is a shared resource and service center located in the School of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutics at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical College of Virginia. We are dedicated to analytical support of collaborative research throughout the university and the external scientific community. The laboratory carries out faculty and graduate student research projects. The Service Center combines the management skills of an outside independent laboratory with the scientific expertise of an academically-based center. This combination provides a synergistic environment where scientific and management objectives are dealt with in a timely and cost-effective manner.
