COVID-19 restrictions to remain in place at The Walton Centre

Restrictions remain in place across the NHS in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety measures in place over the 18 months therefore remain in place at The Walton Centre - and in our other clinic settings within the community – until further notice.

Due to the increased transmission risk posed by the Omicron variant, visiting has been suspended within The Walton Centre except for exceptional circumstances.


The Neurobiochemistry Department in The Neuroscience Laboratories performs a variety of routine and specialist tests.  Neurobiochemistry staff are available for consultation and advice - Monday to Friday 9am until 5.30pm.  Please see contact information for telephone numbers. 

A wide range of analytical techniques are used ranging from complex manual techniques to highly automated testing systems. All assays are closely monitored and quality controlled. 

Additional Tests 

Once analysed, samples will be stored. If additional tests are required, please contact the laboratory to discuss whether this would be appropriate, given the variable stability of some analytes. Additional requests for tests must be given in writing. 

Neurobiochemistry Results – We can report by hardcopy, secure email, fax or NPEx. 

Please contact us if you would like to set up NPEx for requesting and reporting. 


Contact Information 

Neurobiochemistry may be contacted for help and advice Monday to Friday, 9am to 5.30pm (samples accepted between 9am to 5pm).
