SomaLogic’s 7,000-plex SomaScan® Platform will be used in proteomics testing at scale in Europe.
BOULDER, Colo. & L’AQUILA, Italy (July 24, 2023) — SomaLogic Operating Co. Inc., (Nasdaq:SLGC), a leader in data-driven proteomics technology, today announced its partnership with Dante Genomics, a global leader in genomics and precision medicine, to offer a comprehensive solution for proteomics testing at scale in Europe. Dante will be the first SomaLogic authorized site in Italy.
“Over the past seven years, Dante has been intensely focused on enhancing the clinical utility of the genome, and in partnering with SomaLogic, we will now work together to enhance the research and discovery capabilities of the proteome,” said Andrea Riposati, Co-founder and CEO of Dante Genomics. “By combining proteomics and genomics, we will develop clinical insights and actionable results. We are excited for the future of multiomics, where partnerships like this will mean overall better healthcare for more people around the world.”
Dante Genomics will run SomaLogic’s technology out of its laboratory in Italy, providing proteomics services for the European market. SomaLogic’s 7,000-plex SomaScan® Platform can be applied across research and discovery. It can run approximately 7,000 protein measurements on a single 55 microliter plasma or serum sample.
SomaLogic and Dante Genomics will partner to offer one of the first multiomic capabilities to support clinical research discovery, expanding the databases and total addressable market for both companies.
“Italy is a leader in life science research in Europe, showing promising growth in -omics research in academic and private sectors,” said SomaLogic Chief Executive Officer Adam Taich. “We’re excited to be supporting Dante Genomics’s vision for accelerating the clinical research of proteomics.”
