Press release: Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink”) (Nasdaq: OLK) and Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMIC) today announced a collaboration to enable use of the Olink® Explore high-throughput proteomics platform with the Max Read kits on the Singular Genomics G4™ Sequencing Platform.

Singular Genomics and Olink are pursuing an integrated end-to-end solution pairing the existing Olink® Explore assay and the newly announced Max Read kits on the G4. The Max Read kit will offer up to four billion reads per run across four flow cells and 16 independent lanes. The new kit is expected to be a strong solution for the Olink® Explore assay that will translate into significant flexibility, cost, and throughput benefits.

“Olink is committed to offering proteomics customers flexibility in choosing the genomics readout that’s best suited to their needs,” said Jon Heimer, CEO of Olink. “With an expanding number of options becoming available to NGS customers, we’re proud to collaborate with Singular Genomics in bringing our ground-breaking Explore technology to a broader customer base.”

“Singular is excited to be working with Olink to create a unique solution with the Max Read kits,” said Drew Spaventa, CEO and Founder of Singular Genomics. “Olink’s short read proteomics readout is an ideal application for the Max Read kits, where the goal is to drastically increase throughput and reduce cost for short read applications.”

This non-exclusive collaborative framework is a continuation of Olink’s strategy it has executed in NGS since 2020 and combines the strengths of both companies’ technologies. These efforts are intended to provide Olink customers with options in choosing the sequencing platform that is optimal for their needs and to expand the portfolio of applications for G4 customers.
