Mass spectrometry is an extremely powerful and sensitive technology that
can detect very small changes in expression levels. Some of these
changes may stem from the biological differences related to a disease or
treatment of interest. Others, however, may reflect the heterogeneity of
patients across multiple sites, the inherent biological complexity and
diversity of different sample types, and even small differences in
sample collection, processing, handling, and analysis techniques used by
multiple operators across multiple locations. As a consequence, data may
be tainted by site-, study-, population-, or sample-specific anomalies
and, therefore, not be sufficiently robust for biomarker discovery.

Join our panel of experts in a live, audience-driven Q&A as they discuss
how to overcome these reproducibility issues to generate less biased and
more reliable results. Questions for the panel can be submitted live
through your viewing console.
