Sigma-Aldrich has announced the release of the Universal Proteomics Standard during the HUPO Protein Test Sample Standards/NIST Workshop, an educational session prior to the HUPO 5th Annual World Congress.

The standard, a complex mixture of 48 human proteins, was developed in close collaboration with the ABRF Proteomics Standards Research Group (sPRG).

The Universal Proteomics Standard is expected to enable researchers to better assess proteomics strategies, troubleshoot protocols and normalize results from day to day and lab to lab.

The protein mixture was evaluated by 100 independent proteomics laboratories worldwide in an independent study to assess the analytical capabilities of participants and compare the strengths of various analytical strategies.

Results of the study were presented in February 2006 at the annual meeting of the ABRF.

"The Universal Proteomics Standard brings a much needed resource to the Proteomics community," said Dale Peluso, Sigma-Aldrich's Market Segment Manager for Quantitative Proteomics.

"It was a privilege to work with the ABRF sPRG in the development of this important research tool, and we look forward to future opportunities to work with other groups on projects such as this."
