Mosaiques Diagnostics is the leading specialist in clinical proteomics and CE-MS analysis, currently the best technology available for identifying disease-specific polypeptide biomarkers in body fluids. It has developed its proprietary hardware for analysis and software solutions for data evaluation. They moreover own a unique database of peptides in human body fluids consisting of currently >20,000 samples and their relevance in different age-associated diseases. Mosaiques Diagnostics has published over 120 papers in peer-reviewed journals on its proprietary technology and has filed over 100 patent applications to date.
Within sysVASC, Mosaiques Diagnostics will contribute peptidomic datasets and analysis of large population based cohorts, and bioinformatics and statistic solutions for high-dimensional data interpretation. They will also contribute to exploitation and dissemination strategies of the project.
