Genetix to Distribute Olink Products in India, SE Asia

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Olink Bioscience said today that it has signed up Genetix Biotech Asia to distribute its proximity ligation assay product line in India and Southeast Asia.

Uppsala, Sweden-based Olink said that the South Asian region represents a new market for its Duolink reagents, because it has “an increasing number of academic and industrial partners.”

The firm said that its Duolink products extend the capabilities of immunoflourescence and immunohistochemistry to include direct detection of proteins, protein interactions, and modifications.

Olink did not specify which Southeast Asian companies the agreement covers.

Earlier this week, Olink said it had signed an agreement with AH Diagnostics to distribute the Duolink technology in Denmark and Norway.
