CNS ProteoCarta™

Human Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) MRM Panel for CNS Diseases

the biomarker consortiumWorking in conjunction with the Biomarker Consortium as the selected discovery partner, Caprion has developed CNS ProteoCarta™, an easily customizable and highly multiplexed mass spectrometry based assay, useful in monitoring central nervous system (CNS) proteins associated with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease.

CNS ProteoCarta allows detection and quantification of 142 proteins in human cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) in a single multiplexed Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) assay, requiring only 75 ul of CSF of this often difficult-to-obtain specimen.

CNS ProteoCarta™ Advantages:

  • Highly Multiplexed (142 Proteins)
  • Developed Specifically for CSF
  • Easily & Rapidly Expandable
    – Add new proteins in 8 to 12 weeks
  • Small Sample Volumes (75 uL/sample)
  • No antibodies required
  • Exceptional molecular specificity
  • Sensitive
