The Impact of Matrix Selection as a Pre-Analytical Variable on BloodBased Protein Biomarker Quantification

Time: 1:15 pm
day: Day One


• In the context of protein biomarkers measurements, the goal is to measure the levels that are circulating

• Understanding the impact of proper sample matrix selection is an important piece of this. Platelets and other circulating cells can release proteins during the process of coagulation

• Anticoagulants can affect the ability to detect different proteins. If the proper matrix is not selected the measurements may be incorrect
