NextGen Sciences this week launched its plasmabreast25 multiplex protein assay for the discovery and quantification of protein biomarkers linked to breast cancer.

The assay uses multiple-reaction monitoring mass spectrometry to simultaneously measure 25 proteins in plasma samples. The product is the latest in NextGen's line of biomarker discovery panels, the first of which — plasmadiscover41 — it launched last month.


Berg Diagnostics has released 100 ELISA kits for research use. The kits cover a variety of protein families including cytokines, growth factors, and receptor proteins and a number of research areas like inflammation, oncology, and immunology.

The Scan

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
