Equipped with this suite of standardized workflows and quality control procedures, CPTAC morphed into the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium, which goes by the same acronym.
CPTAC continues to define the most rigorous standards for proteomic experiments.
A key contribution of CPTAC is the collaborative nature of the consortia, and the open communication among the participating components.
As specified in a pre-application meeting document, each CPTAC team will develop a proteomic analysis platform, and the teams will share materials, protocols, data, samples, algorithms and resources.
The paper is an example of the types of critiques that CPTAC's efforts can address.
The CPTAC request for applications (RFA) cited specific MS platforms, specifically, time-of-flight (TOF) MS, Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR) MS, tandem MS/MS and liquid chromatography (LC)-MS, as well as MALDI matrix-assisted laser desorption-ionization (MALDI) and electrospray-ionization (ESI) ionization sources.
Because the advantages of eliminating interference are so substantial, the rigorous demonstration of this capability would appear to be a key item on the agenda of research groups such as the CPTAC consortium.
Something worth considering within the CPTAC community would be to take one MS assay through a set of performance studies equivalent to those required for a 510(k)--e.g., the interlaboratory reproducibility.

Next steps for the CPTAC center network include gathering additional information on the variability of proteomics platforms.
In addition to the white paper (workshop summary), the workshop also recommended that CPTAC take the lead in developing "mock 510(k)" documents (nonregulatory documents in the form of 510(k) submissions) provided to the FDA that would help orient the FDA to multiplex mass spectrometry and affinity array platforms in novel diagnostics and serve as a springboard for guidance to the proteomics community.
