E.M. Papper Laboratory of Clinical Immunology

The E. M. Papper Laboratory of Clinical Immunology, directed by Dr. Mary Ann Fletcher, has been associated with research and clinical care for over 30 years. With laboratory facilities at the Davie Campus of NSU and the Miami VA Medical Center, our labs are licensed clinical reference labs in the state of Florda, CLIA certified and NIH, VA and DoD funded research facilities. Current tests performed in the lab include Flow Cytometry, Natural Killer Cell Toxicity, Multiplex Cytokines, HIV and EBV viral load assays. Gene expression research and testing is also performed in the laboratory with the use of the NanoString Analyser.

In addition, the laboratory is an established biobank with emergency back-up freezers and is a long standing participant in the ACTG/Duke proficiency testing program for cryopreservation, storage and shipping of peripheral blood mononuclear cells.

The E.M. Papper Laboratory of Clinical Immunology is an independent laboratory. Physicians may send samples to the lab for testing.

Please email INIMLab@nova.edu for a comprehensive list of lab services offered, pricing inquiries, procedure and general questions.
