Lipid Tests provided by OHSU Lipid Lab
Currently, the OCTRI Core Laboratory does not perform lipid analyses, but many investigators utilize the resources of the dedicated OHSU Lipid Laboratory. The OHSU Lipid Lab offers precise determination of lipids and specialized lipid metabolites not routinely available in general hospital clinical labs or elsewhere in Oregon. Currently, the OHSU Lipid Lab is the only laboratory on the West Coast that does sterols.
