UPPSALA, Sweden, Aug. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink”) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced that the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center (BCM-HGSC) has selected the Olink Explore platform as a proteomics component of their world-class multiomics offering.
Understanding the complex biological mechanisms of human diseases is essential to identifying effective new therapeutic strategies. The addition of Olink proteomic technology enables a more thorough understanding of the intricate connections between genes, proteins, and diseases that will lead to improved diagnostics, targeted therapies and the advancement of precision and personalized medicine.
“We are immensely pleased to see the Olink Explore HT platform implemented at one of the world’s leading multiomic research centers,“ said Jon Heimer, CEO, Olink Proteomics. “The massive genomic sequencing and automation capabilities of the BCM-HGSC unlocks a unique opportunity for proteogenomic research at scale. We look forward to seeing our tools applied across a broad spectrum of new therapeutic research fields to enhance the existing knowledge of molecular pathways involved in the development, progression, and outcome of disease.”
Other large-scale research programs, like the UK Biobank health study, have demonstrated how Olink Explore enables a more complete understanding of the molecular basis of disease. With the addition of Olink proteomics technology, the BCM-HGSC further strengthens its ability to offer unique multiomics capabilities for large population-scale health studies.
“Technology development and the adoption of new methods remains a priority at the HGSC, and we are excited to incorporate Olink’s technology into our portfolio,” said Richard Gibbs, Ph.D. Director, Human Genome Sequencing Center and Wofford Cain Professor of Molecular & Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine. “The ability to perform high-throughput proteomics opens many possibilities for current and future studies. This technology provides a natural extension from traditional genomic research by providing data that points to the impact of genetic variation on function. A comprehensive, multiomic approach will be needed to determine the mechanism of action of many genetic diseases and is essential for guiding effective prevention and treatment.”
The Olink Explore platform represents the cutting edge in proteomic technology. Olink Explore HT is the company's latest solution for high-throughput proteomics, delivering unmatched specificity, scalability, and simplicity. With a completely reimagined and streamlined workflow, Olink Explore HT allows scientists to accurately measure over 5,300 proteins using only 2µl of sample. By combining Olink PEA technology with an NGS readout of relative protein concentrations each thoroughly validated assay maintains the exceptional standards of specificity and sensitivity that Olink users have come to trust.
