Olink

Olink Proteomics' proximity extension assay technology uses oligonucleotide-labeled antibodies to enable multiplex protein measurement.

High throughput and deep coverage have allowed firms like Olink and Somalogic to make inroads, especially among researchers working outside proteomics.

Highlights included mass spec-focused developments like data-independent acquisition and ion mobility along with platforms including Thermo Fisher's Q Exactive.

While the approach lost some of its luster after failing to deliver on early hype, technological improvements are revitalizing interest among researchers.

The incubator, housed on the campus of the Karolinska Institute, draws upon the experience of its partners in genomics, diagnostics, business development, and corporate law.

Olink is perhaps best known for its proximity extension assay (PEA) technology, which allows for highly sensitive, highly multiplexed protein measurements.

The New York Times Magazine writes that proteomics might be better poised than genomics to say when someone is falling ill.

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.
