Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. All proteins are made up of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. There are 20 different types of amino acids that can be combined to make a protein. The sequence of amino acids determines each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function.

In Vitas we have worked with protein analysis for fifteen years and our people are experts on the topic. We master a broad range of techniques used for protein determination from a wide range of sample types, including biological samples like blood, serum, plasma, tissue, urine etc.

One of our recent upgrades is multiplexing with Mesoscale Discoveries Quickplex SQ 120 instrument using their proprietary MULTI-ARRAY technology to get unparalleled sensitivity and dynamic range.

We can offer a broad range of applications including analysis of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors etc.

Areas of interest for this platform could be neurobiology/degeneration (Alzheimer´s Disease), bone disorders, cardiovascular disorders, metabolic disorders, clinical immunology , inflammation as well as assay development.
