Laura García Latorre

I am a TSS (Higher Health Laboratory Technician). I started my professional career at the ICS in 1987 working at the Good Shepherd Laboratory and in 1992 I joined the Vall d'Hebron Hospital. The Biochemistry laboratory was the first service I was in and shortly afterwards I passed CIBBIM. In all these years I have seen and experienced the transformation of the campus. I am currently continuing at CIBBIM-Nanomedicina specifically in the DDT group which has a laboratory located in the Collserola VHIR building and another in the Mediterrània VHIR building.

Institutions of which they are part

During all these years I have worked with different biological samples and I have carried out different test techniques
- Biochemistry: Detection of general clinical biochemistry parameters (routine biochemistry).
Quantification of electrolytes, specific lipids, hormones, proteinograms and immunological techniques in blood. Mass spectrometry techniques: metabolic studies in urine (nitrogen balance), detection of Helicobacter pylori in breath. Preparation of parenteral nutrition and its control in experimental animals Quantification of amino acids by HPLC in tissues. Fluoroimmunoassay. nephelometry

- Molecular biology. Bacteria growth. Gene cloning and sequencing. Extraction, quantification and analyzes of DNA, RNA and proteins. qRT-PCR. Western blot. Processing of tissue samples and subsequent lipid extraction. Enzyme activities. Electrophoresis with radioactive isotopes

- Cell biology. Culture of tumor cell lines. Primary cultures of skin biopsies and Amniotic Fluid. Cell viability and proliferation assays, cell cycle and apoptosis analyses. Flow cytometry.

- Pathological anatomy. Immunohistochemistry.

- ISO9001: Quality Management Systems
