scioDiscover - Protein Expression Analysis Platform

Our scioDiscover service enables high-content, immuno-based analysis 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.
