NEW YORK & BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CM Life Sciences II (NASDAQ: CMIIU) and SomaLogic, Inc., a global leader in proteomics technology, announced today that their new customizable protein panel products are now available to pharma, biotechnology and academic research customers seeking the power of the company’s proteomics menu of 7,000 proteins.
“Our customers have expressed a strong desire to use our platform to focus their work on smaller numbers of proteins of interest for drug discovery and disease research, and in many cases to integrate with our market-leading discovery capabilities. We are excited to be able to give them this flexibility,” said SomaLogic Chief Executive Officer Roy Smythe, M.D.
SomaLogic’s new small-plex products will be structured both as disease-specific panels (pre-determined groups of proteins linked to the evaluation of diseases or conditions), as well as customizable panels, allowing customers to choose their own combinations of interest from SomaLogic’s total library of measured proteins – believed to be the emerging proteomic sector’s largest.
SomaLogic is now offering small-plex panels with targeted analytes for specific disease states. These panels include:
- Cardiovascular – 953 analytes
- Inflammation and Immune Response – 938 analytes
- Oncology – 863 analytes
- Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases – 890 analytes
SomaLogic’s SomaScan® Custom Panels are also now available between 1 and 1,500 analytes, offering flexibility to academic and pharma partners. Customers using the disease-specific panels or the custom panels have the option to expand their datasets to SomaLogic’s entire proteomics menu of 7,000 proteins at any point in their discovery process, without having to run additional samples.
