A rising star in food allergen research: proteomics of shellfish allergen

It’s important to know what you’re eating, especially if you suffer from a food allergy.

About 220 million people worldwide live with a food allergy.1 These numbers, along with the complexity and severity of conditions, continue to rise. In America, there are about 32 million food allergy sufferers—5.6 million of those are children under the age of 18.2.2 That’s 1 out of every 13 children, or about 2 in every classroom. From a financial perspective, the cost of food allergy childcare for US families is up to $25 billion

“Bottoms Up” Proteomics

  Ahhhh beer. It's a ubiquitous drink found in over 90% of all countries around the world. Since the dawn of civilization, man has celebrated with beer where it can make even the most introverted person suddenly dance a little jig or belt out a top 40 song. But other...

Multi-Laboratory Study Highlights the Quantitative Reproducibility of SWATH Acquisition (Nature Communications Paper)

Reproducibility is one of the key tenets of the scientific method. But in a recent survey published in Nature, more than 70% of researchers were not able to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half could not reproduce their own experiments1. While the reasons for this are many, at least some of them stem from issues inherent in data collection.

Happy Birthday to SWATH Acquisition! 5 Years of Innovation

Happy Birthday to SWATH Acquisition! 5 Years of Innovation

With its introduction at the HUPO World Congress in 2010 in Sydney Australia by Ruedi Aebersold, SWATH® Acquisition instantly intrigued scientists around the world. Here was a new technique with the potential to revolutionize the way proteomics studies were performed! Based on a data independent acquisition strategy using a SCIEX TripleTOF® 5600 system, SWATH was able to consistently identify and quantify at least as many peptides and proteins as other far more mature proteomics strategies on the market, but with quantitative accuracy and reproducibility rivaling gold standard MRM experiments! This solution was made broadly available to researchers with a full launch of SWATH Acquisition in the Analyst® TF 1.6 Software on the TripleTOF 5600+ System at ASMS 2012 in Vancouver (A Mine of Quantitative Proteomic Information.  Prof Dr. Ruedi Aebersold, Head of the Department of Biology, ETH Zurich).
