Press release: Olink Holding AB (publ) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced the release of Olink® Analyze 3.1. Olink® Analyze is an R software package, a collection of functions written in R programming language, created to streamline the analysis of Olink data.

R is a free and open-source programming language that is widely used for statistics and data science. Olink® Analyze enables users to easily extract biological insight from Olink data using built-in statistical analysis and visualization functions and expedites the data analysis process with quality control visualizations and easy integration with other R packages.

Regardless of what Olink product is being used, Olink® Analyze 3.1 can help expedite the analysis pipeline. For the Olink® Target 48 product for analysis of immune response proteins, non-parametric functions have been added to easily analyze data in absolute quantification. For hypothesis generating studies, like those run with Olink® Explore 3072 for simultaneous analysis of up to 3,000 proteins, the heatmap function makes it even easier to detect global trends in Olink data. Pathway enrichment functions enable a seamless connection between statistical results and biological meaning.

Olink® Analyze functions also help with data pre-processing, quality control and exploratory data analysis, statistical analysis, and data visualization. Olink® Analyze is easily accessible and can be installed from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN), R’s central software repository, and has undergone manual and automated review by CRAN maintainers. Whether trying to get a sense of data, developing new hypotheses, or looking for biomarkers of interest, Olink® Analyze can streamline the analysis process to get from data to insight faster.

“To support our customers in their important work, we strive to always improve the services we provide”, said Dr. Lina Hultin Rosenberg, Olink’s Head of Data Science. “With Olink® Analyze we provide our customers a highly versatile toolbox to make data analysis easier and facilitate extracting biological insights from Olink data. The new release comes with increased functionality, supporting Olink products spanning from Olink® Target 48 to Olink® Explore 3072, and I am very proud to see the constant efforts from the team to develop the package in line with our customers needs.”
