Olink Signs up Italian Distributor

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Olink Bioscience said today that it has tapped Space Import-Export to distribute its DuoLink product line in Italy.

Olink's DuoLink products are based on its in situ proximity ligation assay technology, which extends immunoflourescence and immunohistochemistry capabilities to include detection of proteins, and protein interactions and modifications.

The technology detects target proteins with single-molecule resolution, allowing digital quantification and target localization; and it enables researchers to study the proteins in fixed cells and tissues.

Milan-based Space Import-Export’s Sales and Marketing Manager Luca Cicchetti in a statement said that Olink’s in situ PLA technology is a good fit for the company’s aims “to provide first-class reagents for proteomics and cancer research."
