Olink Bioscience this week launched its new Proseek reagent kit, which it said enables immunoassays at the same level of performance as an ELISA, but in sample volumes as low as 1 microliter per reaction.

The Proseek system is based on Olink's proximity extension assay technology, which uses oligonucleotide-labeled antibodies, and uses real-time PCR for the detection and quantification of proteins in serum or plasma samples.

NextGen Sciences this week launched its plasmalung27 and plasmaprostate21 multiplex protein assays for the discovery and quantification of protein biomarkers linked to lung and prostate cancer.

The assays use multiple-reaction monitoring mass spectrometry to simultaneously measure proteins in plasma samples and follow the recent launches of the company's plasmadiscover41 and plasmabreast25 discovery panels.

Sage-N Research this week released a new API toolkit to enable software developers to integrate its Sorcerer proteomics data analysis platform into existing software packages.

The toolkit will enable other applications to specify and submit Sequest 3G searchers, to track and control submitted searches, and to retrieve hits and scores, the company said.

Origene announced this week the release of 210 new TrueMAB monoclonal antibodies, which it is offering at 30 percent off the regular price until July 31.

The antibodies come with positive controls and are validated using IHC, flow cytometry, IF, IP, and Western blotting, the company said.
