SomaLogic SomaScan Assay 1.3K

SomaLogic has launched the latest version of its proteomics assay, which now measures 1,310 protein analytes and is commercially available to the life science research community. Many of the nearly 200 new reagents added to the new version target proteins in inflammatory and oncology-related molecular pathways. The assay can efficiently, accurately, and rapidly measure proteins from high to very low concentrations in small volumes to many different biological sample types, said SomaLogic in a statement. This new version is replacing the current 1,129-measurement version without a price increase. During the transition to the new version of the assay, the current assay will remain available for a short time at a reduced rate.
