SomaPlex slides from Protein BioTechnologies, for screening protein biomarkers in human tumors, are arrays prepared from a vast collection of total protein lysates derived from numerous human tissues representing a range of cancer subtypes. Detailed clinical and histopathology is available for each sample.
Protein from patient-matched normal and tumor tissue is robotically-spotted on specially-treated glass slides that are compatible with colorimetric, chemiluminescent or fluorescent protein detection systems. Microarrays are supplied with custom, low-volume incubation chambers and ZeptoBlock Protein Microarray-optimized blocking buffer.
