Strangely inaccurate review of proteomics technology in MCP? WTF?


There is a long standing blog rule about the fact I already get hundreds of emails/day and it's better if they're mostly positive things or people asking me to run 1,000 plasma samples for free. 

The MIRIADE Consortium appears to be a rather new group of neuroscience investigators in Europe who appear to have good intentions and tried to put together a review of a lot of ways to measure proteins and have never been in a clinical chemistry lab or know anything about them at all, or they included too many authors and everything got lost in committee? Either way, someone should point out that this is not an entirely accurate review of the powers and limitations of LCMS technology in this context. This isn't a "mass spec is the greatest technology ever" bias from my front, it's that the mass spec descriptions are simply wrong. I was hoping maybe the figures downloaded wrong, like they were linked tables that came down in the wrong format, but I don't think that is the case.

    Ridiculous review . Did not know Targetted proteomics is expensive
