Advancements That Could Bring Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry to Clinical Laboratories

Experts list the top challenges facing widespread adoption of proteomics in the medical laboratory industry Year-by-year, clinical laboratories find new ways to use mass spectrometry to analyze clinical specimens, producing results that may be more precise than test results produced by other methodologies. This is particularly true in the field of proteomics. However, though mass spectrometry is highly accurate and fast, taking only minutes to convert a specimen into a result, it is not fully...

Swiss Researchers Use New Mass Spectrometry Technique to Obtain Protein Data, Create Strategy That Could Lead to Clinical Laboratory Advances in Personalized Medicine

Researchers believe they have begun to crack open a ‘black box’ involving the genomes and diseases of individual patients Researchers in Switzerland are developing a new way to use mass spectrometry to explain why patients respond differently to specific therapies. The method potentially could become a useful tool for clinical laboratories that want to support the practice of precision medicine. It is also one more example of how mass spectrometry is being used by researchers to develop new...
