Olink Explore 3072 Proteomics Platform

Olink has launched the Olink Explore 3072 high-throughput proteomics platform, which features the firm's proprietary proximity extension assay high-multiplex immunoassay technology combined with next-generation sequencing readout using Illumina NovaSeq and NextSeq platforms. This expansion of the existing Olink Explore 1536 product effectively doubles the number of available protein biomarker targets, covering all major biological pathways and increasing dynamic range while maintaining sensitivity, specificity, and precision, the company said. The platform provides throughput of just over 4,600 samples per week per system, with almost 3,000 proteins measured for each sample, Olink said. The firm is currently taking orders for the system and related kits, with deliveries expected to begin in the fourth quarter.
