The new Journal of Proteomics webinar will last one hour and be followed by a question and answer session.

The need to identify and accurately quantify a protein or a panel of proteins in multiple samples is becoming increasingly important in the life sciences, pharmaceutical, clinical and food and beverage industries. Typically these analyses are done using antibodies (e.g. ELISA or Western Blot), but the development of antibodies with suitable specificity is laborious and expensive, and the assays are difficult to multiplex.

The current alternative is to use mass spectrometry-based 'shotgun' proteomics that can detect large numbers of proteins, but this has been criticized for lacking reproducibility, and not having the ability to quantitatively analyze large numbers of samples to account for biological variation.

Targeted Proteomics using multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry is a powerful technology that may address these limitations, and is one of the hot topics in the scientific community at the moment. MRM assays are relatively cheap and fast to develop, the quantitative assays are reproducible and accurate, they can be performed in high throughput, and many proteins can be assayed in the same experiment.

Don't miss out on this lively web based seminar in association with Applied Biosystems/ MDS Analytical Technologies, bringing together three thought-leaders in Targeted Proteomics to discuss the current capabilities and future directions of this technology.

Remember - registration is free and only takes a few minutes of your time to fill in your details.

Yours sincerely,
