Phase 2 of 2D Gel Reproducibility Effort Yields ‘Significant’ Confidence Levels

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 10-13-2009

New story today published in Genomeweb shows that 2D Gel Electrophoresis is once again gaining momentum in the world of proteomics and biomarker research.

In the second phase of a campaign to test the reproducibility of 2D gel technology, 10 out of 17 laboratories, or 60 percent, were able to generate gel images that fell within a 95-percent confidence level in an inter-laboratory study.

As a result, the methods developed in both phases of the campaign, called Fixing Proteomics, now serve as standards by which proteomics researchers using 2D gels can benchmark themselves, according to the campaign’s organizers.
