Automated sample prep (part 1): bringing proteomics closer to the clinic

By Shang Tsai

Successful implementation of proteomics in the clinical environment has still not materialized, and lags far behind genomics, even after decades of advances in protein sample preparation. The primary cause for this underwhelming performance lies in the diverse physiochemical properties of proteins and the complexity of the sample prep workflow itself. In this two-part series we will start by looking at how realistic it is to automate the protein sample prep workflow, and move on to discuss ways to overcome bottlenecks that prevent proteomics from entering clinical use.
