SomaLogic’s SomaScan Assay measures the levels of 5,000 proteins in small samples of blood which can be used to identify new biomarkers, novel drug targets, improve the assessment and management of therapeutic responses. Under the terms of the new agreement, SomaLogic will analyze more than 40,000 samples, including samples from Amgen clinical trials.
“The limitations of other technologies compromise how fast proteomics will impact health care. Therefore, we have an obligation to make our leading SomaScan Platform more accessible to all potential researchers under terms that meet their organization’s particular needs, whether as a collaboration or simple fee-for-service,” said Roy Smythe, M.D., chief executive officer of SomaLogic. “Profiling proteins at scale has the potential to impact clinical or basic research studies of almost any disease or condition, and we offer unmatched scale and reliability.”
