Corporate Overview

Ciphergen Biosystems, Inc. develops, manufactures, and markets ProteinChip(R) Systems that enable protein discovery, characterization and assay development so researchers can gain a better understanding of biological functions at the protein level.

The ProteinChip Biomarker System is a powerful tool that provides a direct approach to understanding the role of proteins in the biology of disease, monitoring of disease progression and the therapeutic effects of drugs.

Pioneering researchers around the world are taking full advantage of Ciphergen's powerful SELDI-based ProteinChip platform to advance clinical proteomics for predictive medicine.

Products and Technology

The Ciphergen ProteinChip® System provides scientists with a versatile, integrated platform for biological research. Biologically important molecules from a variety of sources may be captured and analyzed on our ProteinChip Arrays, using our ProteinChip Readers and user-friendly ProteinChip Software for rapid data analysis. These tools are available through a variety of Ciphergen Partnership Programs.

The ProteinChip® System from Ciphergen Biosystems uses patented SELDI (Surface-Enhanced Laser Desorption/Ionization) ProteinChip technology to rapidly perform the separation, detection and analysis of proteins at the femtomole level directly from biological samples. The ProteinChip System can replace and complement a wide range of traditional analytical methods, which are not only more time consuming, but require specialized scientific expertise. Research that previously required days, weeks or even months can now be accomplished in an afternoon.


Participate in the proteomics revolution at Ciphergen Biosystems! Our mission is to improve understanding of disease processes through advanced protein technology products and services. Our ProteinChip® System is an integrated and fully supported platform comprising ProteinChip arrays, instrumentation and software. To find out what you can do to be a part of the proteomics revolution, consider these job opportunities.
