dc.description.abstractThis project was done in order to measure the stability of proteins in general; in particular C-Reactive Protein (CRP) which is very important in cardiovascular studies. Current methods of handling CRP is to freeze the sample at -80°C for long term use, or -20°C for medium term use, or 4°C for short term use. This experiment was done in order to measure how much CRP will degrade after a certain time with different matrices. From this project, no conclusive data was gathered to give a certain approximation on the stability of CRP. The data that was gathered did tell us that CRP is most stable with PBS with 0.5% Albumin (PBSA) than saliva, which is more stable than in nanopure water. Furthermore, the data showed that samples kept at -20°C were more stable than those kept at 4°C.en
