New Sciomics Proteomics Research Blog has Launched!

Sciomics Protomics Research Blog


At Sciomics, we are dedicated to advancing healthcare through proteomics research. We are collaborating with research groups and big pharma, alongside our in-house biomarker research initiatives. To make this research more accessible to you, we are launching the new Sciomics science blog!

The first study we will feature was published this year in a journal in the Nature publishing group. It's a topic that affects us all. Any guesses? Stay tuned!

Chief Scientific Officer, Kinarus Therapeutics AG, Basel, Switzerland

"We are a small biotech company without our own wet labs. Sciomics recommended a UK CRO that performed cell culture experiments for our studies. Sciomics seamlessly coordinated the transfer of the biologic materials to their facility and performed the scioCD panel to characterize cell surface markers and cytokines in cell lines treated with our small molecule drug candidates. The Sciomics data were instrumental in supporting our IP protection strategy. Their advice was very helpful and they worked with us to extract the most out of the data. We are very satisfied and highly recommend the Sciomics platform and the team."

"By collaborating with Sciomics, we conducted a detailed analysis of the proteome of striatum organoids, uncovering significant differences that further assisted our research. Their communication was highly efficient, and the results were delivered promptly."
