Comparative Analysis of Skyline and SmartPeak Performance in Quantifying a 60-Biomarker Panel in Plasma from Inflammatory Bowel Disease Patients

Accurate data analysis is pivotal in clinical proteomics for the precise quantification of plasma biomarkers, crucial in both disease detection and monitoring. The majority of targeted proteomics research relies on open-source software, such as Skyline and SmartPeak. Read More
This study compares Skyline and SmartPeak employing a 60-biomarker Health Surveillance Panel (HSP) in plasma from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients, using an automated highly multiplexed liquid chromatography-targeted mass spectrometry workflow. Our assessments include Limit of Detection (LOD), Limit of Quantification (LOQ), linear range, and endogenous peptide quantification. Our aim is to rigorously compare the performance of Skyline and SmartPeak in analyzing the HSP, highlighting the crucial role of robust data analysis in interpreting plasma biomarkers effectively.
