Proteomic technology now available to pharmaceutical companies and academic research groups looking to discover and validate protein biomarkers for diverse applications.

SomaLogic, Inc., has announced the launch of SomaSciences in the United Kingdom, making SomaLogic’s proteomic technology available to researchers across the country who seek to improve and accelerate their protein biomarker discovery efforts.

The SomaSciences launch will take place at the ELRIG - ‘Companion Diagnostics’ Conference on May 1, 2012 at The Belfry, Oxford.

Steven Williams, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer of SomaLogic, will present the company’s technology in a talk entitled
“Unlocking protein biomarker discovery for diagnostics and therapeutics; Rapid translation to diagnostic products”.

“We are delighted that this is the first formal European availability of our technology,” said Dr. Williams. “We look forward to building on our current strong collaborations in the UK and establishing new ones that will create additional opportunities for building transformative health care products.”

Proteins provide the most immediate, real-time measure of the state of health and disease in individual patients.

However, the ability to accurately identify and measure the thousands of proteins present in small amounts of biological sample in a high-throughput and wide-ranging manner has proven technologically unfeasible.

SomaLogic’s proprietary SOMAscan™ proteomic assay overcomes many of the limitations of current technologies, and provides a “one stop shop” for the entire process from basic biomarker discovery to validated companion diagnostic.

The SOMAscan technology also provides unprecedented protein biomarker support for drug discovery and development, including target discovery and validation, mechanism of action, prediction of efficacy, patient stratification, and drug response monitoring.
