Zurich, Switzerland, Aug. 16th 2019 - Biognosys AG, the leader in discovery proteomics based on data-independent acquisition (DIA) mass spectrometry, today announced that two abstracts on the Company’s new workflows will be presented at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois from October 19-23, 2019.
Recent failures of drugs in late-stage clinical development for neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, has signaled the need for a greater understanding of the early mechanisms driving the disease state biology. To support the discovery and development of novel biomarkers associated with neurodegenerative diseases, Biognosys has developed a second-generation HRMTM Discovery Proteomics workflow, based on data-independent acquisition (DIA) mass spectrometry, which provides the most comprehensive characterization of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteome.
"The distribution of analyte concentrations in CSF is ideal for data-independent acquisition (DIA) mass spectrometry. By optimizing our HRMTM-MS workflow and developing CSF specific resource protein libraries we are able to quantify a greater number of CSF proteins than ever before."
Dr. Lukas Reiter, CTO at Biognosys
