scioDiscover - Protein Expression Analysis

Protein expression profiling with protein arrays

Our scioDiscover service enables high-content, immuno-based protein profiling of various biological samples leading to a comprehensive overview of proteomic changes. Key pathways in various diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders and organ failure are covered. The technology was successfully applied in a variety of biomedical studies and to discover new biomarker signatures. Within the analysis, 1030 proteins are analysed in parallel. The scioDiscover protein array based service enables fast and targeted research while still offering a broad overview of potential changes on the protein level in your samples.

 

Features

  • Major pathways, secreted proteins, cell surface and inflammatory markers are covered
  • 1030 proteins are profiled
  • Broad spectrum of indications covered such as oncology and organ failure
  • Robust dual-colour study design
  • Including full data analysis and study report
  • Studies possible in human, murine and rat samples

Sample-to-result serviceAntibody microarray workflow

Within our analysis service, we will not only carry out the microarray experiments but also support you with a suggestion for an appropriate microarray study design as well as with the sample selection process in order to address your scientific question in the optimal way. Within 3-4 weeks after receipt of your samples you will receive a customised study report including a statistical analysis.

Our analysis service includes:

  • definition of an appropriate study design
  • sample preparation
  • protein extraction
  • protein concentration measurements
  • protein quality control
  • sample labelling
  • sample purification
  • incubation of the samples on antibody microarrays
  • microarray scanning
  • raw data acquisition
  • data normalisation
