Protein Profiling Platform - Quality Assurance

High quality standards are essential for robust and reliable Biomarker Discovery and Verification as well as for the discovery of new Drug Targets. During the last 10 years a stringent quality assurance workflow has been established for our Antibody Array Platform in order to conduct immuno-based biomedical discovery studies with excellent standards in terms of reproducibility and platform stability. The automated assay workflow further improves the performance of our service. 

 

Biomarker Discovery Phase - scioDiscover Platform

  • Stringent antigen design for maximised specificity of the resulting antibodies
  • Antibodies are antigen affinity-purified
  • Targets identified through transcriptional studies and expert input
  • Stringent QC management
  • Features:  
    • cross-species activity (human and mouse for high versatility)
    • detection of several protein isoforms
    • cost-efficiency through high content

  

Verification Phase - Custom Array Platform

  • Stringent antigen design for maximised specificity of the resulting antibodies
  • Antibodies are antigen affinity-purified
  • In-house QC on Western Blot (different cell lines or tissues) and optional ELISA-based tests
  • In-house QC on large-scale protein arrays (> 9.000 human proteins)
  • In-depth validation of array performance
  • Definition of biomarker signature with highest accuracy
  • Selection of appropriate binders / sandwich pairs
  • Features:  
    • specifically designed antibodies for further use in diagnostic assays
    • fully renewable antibody formats
    • in-depth quality controlled (WB, ELISA)
    • comprehensive cross-reactivity profile (large-scale protein arrays)

 

Orthogonal Biomarker Validation

Verified Candidates can be further validated by orthogonal methods according to customer’s requirements

  • Western Blotting ( WB )
  • ELISA
  • Immuno-Precipitation ( IP )
  • Mass spectrometry ( MS )
  • Biacore
