Olink Proteomics Explore 1536 Assay

Sweden's Olink Proteomics has launched the Olink Explore 1536, a multiplex, proximity-extension immunoassay with next-generation sequencing readout on the Illumina NovaSeq platform. The semi-automated assay can measure more than 1,460 human proteins from less than 3 microliters of plasma or serum, enabling more than 1.35 million protein measurements per week per NGS system. These curated proteins provide coverage of the low-abundance plasma proteome. Olink is offering the assay as a service performed at the firm's labs in Sweden and Boston.
