A number of laboratories affiliated with the UW CFAR are able to provide testing for outside studies on a fee-for-service or contract basis. The availability of these services provides potential advantages for developing HIV and STI research, including:
- Lowering costs
- Reducing the need to export specimens
- Facilitating development of specialized laboratory services
- Enhancing technology transfer to international sites
The attached list is organized by type of test, then by laboratory location. Contact details for each laboratory are provided. Information on sample types, cost, and any EQA performed for the testing are also included. Investigators are encouraged to contact the laboratories directly with inquiries.
This list is updated periodically. If you work with a CFAR-affiliated laboratory that can provide testing for outside studies and is not currently listed, please write to Vrasha Chohan (vchohan at uw.edu), so that we can incorporate this information.
