The study lends support to the case for dried blood spots as a proteomics sample source for applications like biobanking and longitudinal patient monitoring.

Some six months after establishing itself as an independent entity, the company plans to roughly double its protein biomarker libraries by the end of the year.

The company said its new Massachusetts office will focus on driving US sales of its Proseek Multiplex platform for targeted human protein biomarker discovery.

The new company, Olink Proteomics, will focus on the Proseek Platform for protein detection, while the remaining firm will look to commercialize other parts of its IP portfolio.

Olink Proteomics will focus on developing protein biomarker discovery products while Olink Bioscience will work on other technologies arising from its IP portfolio.

Based on Olink's proximity ligation technology, Duolink allows for detection of low-abundance proteins with higher specificity than conventional immunoassays.

Eliminating enzymes makes for a less expensive and more accessible assay that could prove useful for purposes like infectious disease testing in developing countries.
