Biomarker Analytic Research

The Biomarker Analytic Research Core (BARC) performs processing and analysis functions for Einstein and Montefiore investigators. The facility provides uniform, accurate, and cost-effective specimen collection and biomarker analyses in support of research. As the initial step of ensuring accurate measurement, the BARC assists in the handling of blood, tissue, and other sample processing.  Specimens can then be analyzed internally or sent to another lab/core for measurement.  Locations for processing include our laboratories at Einstein and Montefiore’s Moses campus.  BARC also carries out over 88 separate biomarker assays.  The data is generated from various instrumentation and supports diverse methodologies.

  • Sample/DNA processing
  • Lipids and metabolic intermediate analysis
  • Stable isotope dilution assays
  • Fatty acid flux (GC/MS)
  • Triglyceride turnover (GC/MS)
