scioCD - Cell surface marker and Cytokine profiling

 

Characterise a certain cell type?

 

Cell composition in a certain tissue sample?

 

In-depth profiling of CD-marker expression?

 

Increase your throughput at high sensitivity levels?

You aim at high reproducibility?

 

 

Our scioCD profiling service covers 260 different proteins :

All these proteins can be analysed in parallel within a single experiment from minute sample amounts. Thereby, scioCD antibody array analysis service is ideally suited to investigate cell composition of tissues or the differentiation status of cultured cells in a highly parallel, fast and robust fashion. In addition, protein distribution in blood samples (plasma / serum) can be analysed efficiently, providing insights in the blood cell composition.

scioCD is a complete sample-to-result service for a variety of different sample types. The respective protocols were developed over a period of 15 years and are optimised towards highest possible sensitivity combined with high reproducibility (coefficients of variation below 10%).

Case study

Eight treated cell line samples were compared with 8 control samples. Several proteins were identified as differentially expressed (x-axis) and/or phosphorylated (y-axis). While the left plot provides an overview on expression / phosphorylation differences for all tested proteins in the two sample groups, individual levels are depicted in the plots on the right. The sample status is indicated as C = control or T = treated.

Target proteins

Our scioDiscover and scioPhospho services are based on complex Antibody Microarrays, also called analytical Protein Arrays or Protein Capture Arrays. Within a single experiment 1030 proteins can be profiled in parallel requiring only minimal amounts of sample. The targets proteins were carefully selected over a period of more than 15 years to cover a broad set of different protein classes as well as pathways important in biomedical studies.

Thereby, the protein profiling covers key pathways in various diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders as well as organ failure. Given the wide spectrum of applications and indications the service is ideal for high-content protein expression level analysis from various biological samples. The broad coverage of many important pathways, extracellular and membrane proteins as well as transcription factors, renders scioDiscover a versatile and efficient tool for discovery projects.

Please find below the distribution of the proteins targeted by scioDiscover according their biological processes (Fig.1), their protein classes (Fig.2), their molecular function (Fig.3) as well as their cellular compartment (Fig.4). In addition, pathways covered by scioDiscover are listed in Table 1.

For the pathways TNF signaling, Cell cycle regulation and pathways important in Cancer, Tuberculosis and Huntington's Disease covered targets are depicted in green.
