NTU are experts in antibody production, immunoassay development & optimisation and use of mass spectrometry for the analysis and identification of proteins. We have experience of a wide range of analytical methods for proteins including 1D- and 2D-gel electrophoresis, immunoassays (including ELISAs, dot blotting & Western blotting) and the use of mass spectrometry for protein identification. We are experts in the development and use of a suite of methods for the detection, identification and semi-quantification of protein biomarkers.

We conduct customised R&D, and identify/address new authenticity problems via the analysis of proteins.
