The Biochemistry Laboratory offers a facility to apply knowledge and skills in topics related to biochemistry field as well as to the molecular and cellular biology designed for biology and biochemistry undergraduate students. In addition, the Biochemistry Laboratory is a reference laboratory for health sciences students where clinical chemistry sciences are being covered. Topics include:
- Standard biochemical experiments including identification of biomolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins 
and nucleotides. 
- Advanced biochemical techniques related to enzymology, metabolism, separation of biomolecules by extraction, 
chromatography and electrophoresis
- Molecular and cellular biology experiments including DNA,RNA and protein extraction and manipulation, PCR, 
bacterial transformation 
- Clinical chemistry tests where a wide range of diagnostic tests on blood and urine samples are being conducted. 

These tests most of the disorders related to carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, metabolic disorders involving electrolytes, and diseases associated to liver, cardiac and renal dysfunction.
