RPPA assay services

Misvik has one of the largest active RPPA (reverse-phase-protein-array) manufacturing facilities in the Northern Europe. Consisting of two pilot scale contact microarray printers and two industrial scale printers for scale-up and massively parallel array manufacturing, we are your one-stop-shop for any protein microarray manufacturing needs. With 15+ years´ experience on RPPA and other miniaturized microarray methods, we can support both cell-based functional screening using RPPA readouts as well as ultra-high-throughput multiplexed analyses of our in-house collected patient samples of 700+ patient derived tissue and cell line samples from 65+ different human cancer types or your proprietary tissue collections.
