Caprion Biosciences To Participate In A Round Table Discussion.
MONTREAL, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Caprion Biosciences Inc. a North American (Canada) and European (Belgium), leading specialty laboratory CRO announced today that Dr. Lorella Di Donato, PhD, Senior Vice-President of Scientific Operations, will participate in a round table discussion on novel techniques to overcoming some of the main challenges with the analysis of FFPE tumor tissue from cancer patients, at the WRIB conference in Los Angeles.
Caprion Biosciences has demonstrated extensive capabilities for the identification of candidate protein biomarkers by analyzing FFPE tissue samples using a label-free mass spectrometry approach in a discovery setting. Furthermore, the approach can be used in a clinical setting for quantitative measurement of specific protein biomarkers using the AQUA (absolute quantification) approach which relies on heavy-labeled peptides (relative quantitation) as well as quantitative with high multiplexing capability.
Caprion Biosciences will be presenting its capabilities and expertise with FFPE tissue samples to perform biomarker analysis by mass spectrometry in a discovery setting, propose a review of key highlights from projects conducted in collaboration with the National Institute of Cancer (NCI) with a detailed presentation of quality control and sample processing methods.
