Proteomics 'requires large-scale quantitative analysis of electrophoresis'

Jul 12 2010

To set up a new proteomics platform in business, one of the key elements is a facility to allow large-scale quantitative analysis of two-dimensional electrophoretic gels, according to a report from Research and Markets.

In Proteomics - Technologies, Markets and Companies, the analyst explains that robotic systems must be installed to facilitate proteomics on an industrial scale.

These are needed to allow high-throughput identification of differences between electrophoretic gels and quantitative analysis of the results.

Meanwhile, other techniques have also proved popular in the proteomics industry, including matrix-assisted laser desorption mass spectrometry, or MALDI-MS.

This has found widespread support as a method of determining biomolecules such as proteins and peptides, the report suggests.

Proteomics as a technical term was coined in 1994 by Marc Wilkins, now a professor of biological sciences at the University of New South Wales in Australia.

It was used to refer to the large-scale analysis of proteins and is analogous in meaning to genomics, its equivalent discipline in genome-based research.
