The Olink Analysis Service labs in Uppsala and Boston are now able to receive SARS-CoV-2 infected samples, regardless of sample type, and process them without inactivation.
This decision has been made based on the review of US and Sweden governmental regulations and scientific literature, as well as a thorough review of our processes and safety precautions in our labs.
At Olink, we are taking every precaution for the well-being of its employees and to ensure that our products and Analysis Service departments are working effectively to continue to support the research community and its vital work.
Please note that some of our external service providers may still have restrictions on the samples they are accepting and may require pre-treatment of infected samples. If inactivation of your samples is needed, Olink recommends the Triton X-100 protocol.
