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, 1,300 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.

Testimonials

Dr. Bettina Grötsch

"Our lab is working with human osteoclast that were isolated and differentiated from human peripheral blood. Therefore, we were quite limited in cell numbers and protein content for our planned Phosphoprotein analyses. Nonetheless, Sciomics and especially Camille Lowy helped us a lot to test and improve our protein isolation techniques to achieve some interesting phosphoproteome data in human osteoclasts. We were really impressed by the detailed data report and their willingness to discuss and reanalyze the data repeatedly until we got the best results out of our measurements. Even several month after their first report, we could ask for help and suggestions with an immediate reply.  The phosphoproteome analyses completed our preliminary project data and are now published in Frontiers Immunology.  Altogether, we were very happy with the service of Sciomics and special thanks to Camille Lowy and Christoph Schröder who guided us through the whole process."
