Portable Methods for Biomarker Data Collection in the Field

Instructor: Eleanor Brindle


CSDE is offering a hands-on workshop in biomarker methods that provide quick on-site measurements in non-clinical settings without the need to transport samples back to a lab. We’ll practice proper technique for minimally invasive measures like height, weight, body composition, and blood pressure, and the use of simple tools for biomarker testing with blood collected from a finger prick. A brief lecture component will cover costs, logistics, human subjects implications, and strengths and limitations of this approach to biomarker data collection.
