Abstract

Proteins are multifunctional biomolecules that perform and regulate most metabolic processes in living organisms. Measurement of proteins in serum and urine is an essential component of medical diagnosis and treatment. A wide array of analytical techniques has been applied to measuring proteins in biological specimens; most of these methods are routinely available in clinical laboratories. Yet, on the horizon are powerful analytical methods that promise to greatly expand the clinical applications of protein measurements in health and disease. Measurement of proteins is certain to remain a central element of laboratory medicine for many years to come.
