The Ball State University Nutrition Assessment Laboratory conducts several forms of nutrition assessments, including:

  • anthropometric (measuring height and weight)
  • clinical
  • dietary
  • biochemical assessments

Most screenings are noninvasive, resulting in minimal risk to patients (e.g. finger stick for biochemical analysis will require a skin puncture and a small quantity of blood; as with any skin puncture, the risk to the patient may include minor bruising, bleeding, or infection at the puncture site). All universal precautions are practiced in the Nutrition Assessment Laboratory for the safety of patients and employees.
