SomaLogic Customizable Protein Panels

SomaLogic has made new customizable protein panels available to pharma, biotechnology, and academic research customers. The panels will be structured both as disease-specific panels (pre-determined groups of proteins linked to the evaluation of disease or conditions), as well as customizable panels that allow customers to choose their own combinations of interest from SomaLogic's total library of approximately 7,000 measured proteins. The company is offering small-plex panels for cardiovascular (953 analytes); inflammation and immune response (938 analytes); oncology (863 analytes); and nutritional and metabolic diseases (890 analytes). Custom panels are available between one and 1,500 analytes, the company said.
