A step closer to personalized medicine
The PCT SWATH mass spectrometry technology, developed at ETH Zurich with the support of SystemsX.ch, is the key technology at the newly created ACRF International Centre for the Proteome of Human Cancer (ProCan) in Australia. This technology will be used to rapidly and simultaneously measure precise levels of many thousands of proteins in very small cancer biopsies.

Their research shows that certain molecular mechanisms are not as relevant as previously assumed. This finding helps to improve our understanding of diseases such as leukaemia and anaemia.
This research was supported by a SystemsX.ch IPhD grant.
