Olink Signs Up North American Distributor

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life science research sales company Axxora has agreed to distribute Olink Bioscience’s products in North America, Olink said this week.

Under the agreement, Axxora, based in San Diego, will distribute Uppsala, Sweden-based Olink’s Duolink product line, which is used in proteomics research applications.

The Duolink line uses in situ proximity ligation assay technology to extend traditional immunoflourescence and immunohistochemistry to include direct detection of proteins, protein interactions, and modifications with specificity and sensitivity.

The proteins are detected with single-molecule resolution and they may be studied at normal expression levels and in fixed cells and tissue sections, Duolink said.

Olink Bioscience’s Director of Sales and Marketing Peter Karlberg said in a statement that the company plans to continue to expand distribution of its product line in North America.
