Meet the Uppsala team
We have been running samples for our customers and providing them with high quality protein biomarker discovery data since 2012. The Uppsala team has successfully run tens of thousands of assays on the Proseek platform, and the scale of the operation continues to accelerate rapidly. The Uppsala Analysis Service is based at our head office in Sweden, close to our R&D and production facilities
From the moment your material arrives, our team of experienced, professional scientists takes very good care of your precious samples. With our unparalleled experience and skill working with Proseek panels, the team is able to deliver the best quality data possible, with a turnaround time that goes above and beyond industry standards. The team also aims to provide first class support to customers once the analysis is completed.
