The Nuffield Department of Population Health has specialist laboratories to store and test millions of blood and urine samples for our research studies and to develop sample collection and testing methods suitable for very large studies. Click on the following links to take a virtual tour of the laboratories and to find out how testing has changed over the years.
Take a peek inside our laboratory to find out how we process, test and store the millions of samples we receive from our research studies.
