Our Innovative Research
AAL works actively with quality researchers at top universities who have quality ethical and research protocol standards. At AAL we trust our ability to understand the science. We are excited by the future research possibilities now we have proven the molecular origin of pyrrole and the relationship to oxidative stress. We regularly work with post graduate students.
AAL works closely with Bio Balance Health Ltd. This organization introduced the pyrrole test into Australia as a prerequisite for commencement of the training of doctors by the USA experts in 2004.
AAL and BBH have always shared the core belief:
Mental health is often associated with biochemical profiles which can be measured and managed
If you give a body the fundamental materials, and components, it needs to repair itself, it will have the capacity for healing
Our research findings are an essential validation of this belief.
Our research findings will populate our lectures on pyrroles in the BBH Doctor training.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Applied Analytical Laboratories is the world leading testing centre for pyrroles in urine. Established in 2009 with the purpose of doing novel research in this area, AAL have been the first to provide separate measures for Pyrroles in urine, and for Urobilinogen. Using the extracted pyrroles, skilled work with one of the world’s top NMR machines has identified these pyrroles in urine to be a biomarker of oxidative stress.
This has led to further research projects in this area. Due to the scientific demonstration of the role of this waste product, clinical application has become more precise with improved patient outcomes.
Applied Analytical Laboratories Pty Ltd is a company incorporated according to law with a registered office and laboratory operating at 6/11 Logandowns Drive, Meadowbrook, QLD 4131. Brett Lambert is the Owner and Principal Scientist. Brett Lambert CV
The company primarily offers a pathology service within the mental health industry. AAL also provides a variety of analytical and consulting services in the areas of health, agricultural production and environmental monitoring for government, industry and community organisations.
WHY CHOOSE US
-We separate Pyrroles from Urobilinogen
-Pyrrole = Oxidative stress
-Urobilinogen = gut function
-Our rules of collection stop the pyrrole disappearing
We are the only Laboratory in the world who have done the research to separate pyrrole from Urobilinogen in urine and give results for each. Our pyrrole figure is an accurate reflection of the severity of your oxidative stress. Urobilinogen tells you about your gut function and other complications. Our collection rules stop the fragile pyrroles from breaking down before the test so we get a reliable measure.
We set up the Laboratory to be able to research with top Universities. Our work has changed this test from one with little credibility to a reliable repeatable pathology test which informs of pathology across mental health, haematology, gastroenterology, and urology. We continue to be active in world leading research.

Brett Lambert MSc. Principal of Applied Analytical Laboratories has done extensive research in novel drug discoveries, vaccination research and animal and plant chemistry. As all his work has been confidential except for the papers produced listed here his work is not for public viewing. Brett worked with Astra Zeneca in the 1990’s on novel drug discoveries. His skill with the 800 MHz NMR machine, one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, located at the GRIDD, (ref…..) allowed him to produce research results not previously possible with smaller machinery.
Brett’s understanding of the possible value of this test through his daily interactions with doctors and their patients over the last 15 years and his over 80,000 tests places him in a unique position to drive this world leading research.
AAL work closely with BBH who initiate and support much of the research in which we participate. There is little funding available in this area so our progress is dependent on individuals and families, who have been helped by the doctors trained by BBH, to directly support us and seek funding for us. https://www.apanlabs.com/donate-to-research/
BRETT LAMBERT CV
Who is BRETT LAMBERT MAppSc, the PROPRIETOR and CHIEF SCIENTIST, of APPLIED ANALYTICAL LABORATORIES?
During year 12 chemistry, Mackay students were given the opportunity to learn laboratory skills in a sugar chemistry laboratory. It was here that Brett first met a major career influence – Dr Lionel Stock – who became Brett’s main mentor during the beginning of his chemistry undergraduate degree. Dr Stock’s PhD was supervised by Sir John Cornforth, the only Australian born Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (and Australian of the year, 1976).
After graduation Brett worked with Lionel at the Sugar School where he trained sugar chemists in analytical and inorganic chemistry. The Sugar School and Sugar Research Institute was populated with researchers with incredible skills.
Commencing his Post Graduate research in 1993, through the CSIRO Wendall Laboratory in Rockhampton, with access to organ baths, ELISA techniques & In vitro facilities, he set off making conjugates for vaccination of beef cattle against toxic Pimelea sp. plants. Free access to all manner of spectroscopic techniques made his post graduate research very rewarding. Supervised by Graham Pegg (retired) Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), Central Queensland University and Michael D’Occhio, currently Professor of Food Security at UQ – Gatton, being a stickler for a vigorous scientific process was ingrained.
Upon achieving his MAppSc, (and following a year with Queensland Dept of Natural Resources), Brett commenced work with the Astra Zeneca funded pharmaceutical research facility at Griffith University (currently known as The GRIDD). The project used high throughput screening of rainforest plant and Great Barrier Reef coral extracts to screen for pharmaceutical leads. Brett’s role was isolation and structural elucidation of the leads through use of many different types of chromatography as well as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS and LC-MS).
Deciding not to transfer to work overseas with Astra Zeneca, Brett spent six years with his other passion: Bass playing in a hard-working rock band.
A part time consultancy led to Brett working at a Gold Coast based laboratory developing the Urinary pyrrole test in 2004. Testing of the USA Method showed distinct flaws and adaptations were made to make the test reliable and repeatable. The Pyrrole/pyrrolene-one is a waste product that is easily destroyed by heat and light. The current protocols of Applied Analytical Laboratory pyrrole sample collection, in Australia, are based on his development work.
Excited by the potential of this test in the understanding and management of mental health, in 2009 Brett left the consultancy to set up an independent laboratory with standards acceptable to work with University research projects. Since 2010 AAL have been involved in all University based projects exploring oxidative stress biomarkers, which has resulted in validation of the Urinary Pyrrole test with Dr Stephanie Fryar-Williams through strong control and patient cohort.
NOTE: No previous published work in the “Pyrrole” field had controls included to reference the pathological group.
AAL engaged NATA to commence an accreditation process. AAL complied with all the requirements above and beyond the expected standards. With changes to regulations during the accreditation period, TGA IVD classification and the compliance with laboratory standards of NATA, means AAL is fully approved to conduct the pyrroles in urine test.
AAL is the only laboratory to distinguish between pyrroles and urobilinogen in urine, and therefore provides measures for each. This opens a wide range of mental health applications. REF UROBILINOGEN.
Since 2010, Brett has led work to establish pyrroles in urine as an irrefutable measure of oxidative stress, and correlated with symptoms, a measure of severity of mental health and the response to treatment. The resulting science has opened many exciting research projects now in the pipeline. Brett is also leading fundamental research into the understanding of the chemical mechanism of the expression of elevated urinary pyrroles by conducting spectroscopic studies on synthetic analogues of a model system. Dissemination of findings to date will be in the “Science of Pyrroles in Urine “lecture in 2021. https://apanlabs.com/pyrrole-test/#pyrroles-in-urine-test
Profit from this lecture will fund further detailed biochemical research. As this is the only detailed research in this test, in the world, this funding is incredibly important for improving the care for mental health issues, worldwide.
Bio Balance Health has created this Science of Pyrroles in Urine lecture in conjunction with Brett Lambert. The lecture has been released, in October 2021, to all health professionals within the BBH online education platform. BBH and AAL websites have registration details. https://biobalance.org.au/events/dr-training-program/
