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.

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 206 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%).
