TASC provides expert technical assistance and support to support to obtain and analyze data from molecular , proteomic, and genomic research studies. It also offers its users PeggySue, a SimpleWestern platform from ProteinSimple: a state of the art nano-fluidic Immunoassay (NIA) technology for defining protein signatures and measuring proteomic response to targeted therapies in rare clinical specimens.
Services provided by TASC include:
* Charge (NIA) and Size-Based (SimpleWestern) Protein Separation Nano ImmunoAssay on PeggySue
* Assay development and optimization, set-up, data analysis
* Sample processing:
DNA/RNA/protein isolation from tissue, cells, paraffin block sections, fine needle aspirates (FNAs)
* Blood processing for NIA (PBMC isolation, serum, plasma)
* Cell culture services:
Culturing primary cells and cell-lines
* Assay development for detection and validation of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) from blood.
* Cryopreservation and sample banking
* Technical consulting/individual training
Services are offerred outside of Stanford University
