General procedures

Patient Care: hepcidin tests (human serum or plasma) can be order directly through our Online Test Request.

Clinical trials: we provide "fit-for-purpose" assay validation and subsequent analysis of samples from (pre-)clinical trials. Personnel involved in the study conduct are adequately trained in Good Clinical Practice.

Collaborative projects: we assist in the development/validation of new assays and offer hepcidin measurements at a reduced fee if the focus of a project is on gaining new insights in iron metabolism and will lead to joint publications.
