Biomarkers are evaluated as indicators of normal biologic processes, pathologic processes, or biological responses to a therapeutic intervention. For this reason they are widely tested in academic research labs by scientists seeking to discover the novel mechanisms underlying biological processes.
It is critical during the validation and application of any biomarker to use an assay and analysis protocol that is reliable and reproducible.
With an extensive track record working with academic groups Affinity Biomarker Labs is ideally positioned to support fundamental scientific research projects.
