New Products: May 7, 2009


Olink Bioscience this week launched the Duolink Detection Kit HRP/NovaRed for the detection of proteins, protein interactions, and modifications in tissue samples.

The kit allows Duolink assay results to be analyzed and visualized with bright field microscopy, allowing for the morphology of tissues to be studied in greater detail when combined with the quantification of proteins, protein complexes, and protein modifications, the company said in a statement.

The kit generates discrete spots, each representing individual proteins or protein events. Automated software can be used to count the spots "thereby bringing objectivity to investigations [that] have previously relied on subjective evaluation," according to Olink.
