The removal of these top three highly abundant proteins "results in an enriched low-abundant protein fraction, which allows researchers to apply up to 10 times more protein mass onto the LC/MS, thus increasing the potential for discovering protein biomarkers that may have been masked or undetectable before," says Cory Szafranski, proteomics bio-reagents product manager at Agilent.
Matrix Science has developed a niche market with bioinformatics products and services in the fields of mass spectrometry and proteomics. Currently one of the hottest areas of life science research, proteomics studies the entire protein make-up of a cell to determine which proteins are linked to certain diseases.
Proteomics utilize protein-based chips and high-throughput mass spectrometry to analyze millions of combinations of cellular protein expression to identify characteristic protein pattern "fingerprints" associated with various solid tumors.

Toward this end, he and his coworkers have developed an ovarian cancer proteomics "fingerprint." In its latest version, the blood test has been applied to 153 ovarian cancer patients and 95 women without the malignancy.
In its strictest sense, proteomics, a term coined in 1994, is the protein equivalent of genomics: an approach that involves deciphering the full complement of proteins in an organism, organ, tissue or cell, using rapid, high-throughput analysis.

"This new system is expected to revolutionize the way the proteomics industry characterizes molecular interactions," said Gregory G.
We believe that the combination of Caliper's microfluidic chip expertise, NASA's broad macromolecule crystallization and crystallography experience and Sverdrup's engineering support has the potential to establish LabChip technology as a platform of choice for advanced proteomics research."
The new company, Myriad Proteomics Inc., will spend more than $200 million to analyze information found on proteins and to study their interactions within human cells, and then convert the findings into a database within three years, Hitachi said.
WHILE MOST Australian biotech companies are still scratching their heads in research labs, recently listed company Proteome Systems are making a name for themselves as an active global player in the new but increasingly important proteomics field.
Proteomics has been made feasible by major advances in high throughput mass spectrometry, despite the fact that the core component of the technology remains two-dimensional gel electrophoresis.
