  1. Resource Description
    SOMAscan is an aptamer-based high throughput screening protocol that simultaneously screens for 1129 biomarker candidates. From every sample in a group of 24 unknown samples, the SOMAscan process consumes just 65 uL of serum or EDTA plasma. The SOMAscan process is completed within 48 hours from start and yields an output file that contains concentration-related signals for all 1129 targets as quantified within each sample in the group of 24. Completed output files can then be submitted for further bioinformatic data analysis.
