UPPSALA, Sweden, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink”) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Discovery Life Sciences™ (Discovery) to establish the largest commercial platform of the Olink® technology in the Americas outside of Olink, and provide the market with a global "one-stop shop" to support the discovery and validation of proteomics at scale and with high specificity across all major biological pathways and sample matrices.
“Protein biomarker discovery can help bridge the gap between genomes and phenotypes, enabling improved understanding of real-time human biology and a stronger grasp of the transition from health to disease. With its high specificity, precision, and sensitivity, at scale, Olink’s PEA technology addresses limitations that historically impeded advanced proteomics,” said Jon Heimer, CEO of Olink. “We are excited to support Discovery Life Sciences on their mission to embrace the promise of proteomics through our innovative and unique technology and help leverage its potential for their customers worldwide.”
Olink’s agreement with Discovery, which includes Olink® Explore and the Signature Q100 instrument, represents the latest addition to the rapidly growing community of service providers. This group is collectively embracing Olink’s proteomics platform, from high-plex to low-plex and across major geographies around the world, further growing the proteomics market and increasing Olink’s reach with new customers.
“Olink’s PEA technology is a unique antibody-based proteomic technology with features that solve the dynamic range issue that has hindered proteomics: allowing the detection and quantitation of low and high abundant proteins,” said Michael Pisano, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Proteomics at Discovery. “Discovery is excited to add this significant installation of the Olink® technology to our extensive menu of proteomic services and optimized workflows that accelerate precision medicine programs through every stage of development, at any scale.”
Discovery will offer Olink® PEA technology to complement their genomic, cell biology, and tissue biomarker services, providing multi-omic analyses that inform and accelerate decision-making throughout drug and diagnostic development.
