The Somascan® Assay: biomarker discovery to delivery
Watch the webinar now
The SomaScan® Assay is a proteomic platform that uses single-stranded DNA engineered with aromatic hydrocarbon side chains for binding to protein targets. The SomaScan® Assay has been used to identify signals as surrogates for clinical outcomes, discover proteins associated with disease states, and correlate protein measurements with genetic variants.

WebinarA proteomics signature of NASH
There is a high unmet need for non-invasive tests that can robustly and reliably assess NAFLD for diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring purposes. Large-scale profiling of serum/plasma proteins (proteomics) increasingly demonstrates utility to identify changes that accurately reflect and predict disease states and outcomes, including the fibrosis component of NASH that is driven by disease activity and remains the most robust histological marker of prognosis.
WebinarEarly Detection, Risk Stratification, and Drug Target Identification in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension with Plasma Proteomics
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a rare condition that is clinically heterogenous and often diagnosed late in disease progression. Plasma proteomics offers the potential to diagnose earlier, risk-stratify patients, and identify new drug targets.
