Facility for Geroscience Analysis
The Translational Geroscience Network has created a Facility for Geroscience Analysis (FGA) at Mayo Clinic to provide fee-based services to Network members at costs competitive with those of external providers.
This specialized facility selects, optimizes, and validates ancillary measures of fundamental aging processes to be assayed across trials, with a view to establishing reference and advanced analytical capabilities to serve as a national resource.
The FGA plans to facilitate the translation of bioassays into clinical trials by developing and incorporating assays of key basic aging mechanisms.
The assays offered by the FGA are for research use only, not for diagnostic purposes.
