Universal Proteomics Standard

Universal Proteomics Standard, UPS1

  • Troubleshoot and optimize your analytical protocol
  • Confirm system suitability before analyzing critical samples
  • Normalize analytical results day-to-day or lab-to-lab

Developed in collaboration with the ABRF Proteomics Standards Research Group (sPRG), The Universal Proteomics Standard (UPS1) serves as a complex, well-defined, well-characterized reference standard for Proteomics laboratories. As a challenging, complex mixture, the Universal Proteomics Standard contains 48 human proteins (5 pmols of each) ranging in molecular weight from 8,000 to 80,000 daltons. Each constituent protein has been HPLC purified and AAA quantitated prior to formulation.
