engine – the biomarker company
Pioneers with more than 15 years of experience.
We are your engine for your biomarker discovery! Let us boost your research with our engine human protein arrays.
Protein arrays are in our DNA
In 1998 K. Büssow et al. cloned and selected a human fetal brain cDNA library in E. coli (hEx1 library) in a collaboration between the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Molecular Genetics and the Resource Center of the German Human Genome Project (RZPD). The clones were then spotted as high-density filters and the expressed proteins were detected by antibodies. This work has built the basis for the engine protein arrays. The hex1 arrays were further developed from 2007 onwards by the RZPD spin-off imaGenes GmbH (later Source BioScience) to the hEXselect Array. The cDNA library for the high-density protein arrays was extended by protein expression libraries from human CD4+ T-cells, lung, colon so the UniPEx Array was created.
