Olink® Statistical Analysis app

A web-based application for basic data visualizations and statistical analyses.

Olink assays provide extensive coverage of the plasma proteome and delivers high quality data for approximately 3000 unique proteins. When it comes time to perform data analysis, however, this amount of data can be overwhelming. Olink has therefore developed a web-based application for basic data visualizations and statistical analyses, Olink® Statistical Analysis app. This application is based around the same tools and methods as are used by the Olink Data Science team.

How does it work?

To get started, all you will need is an NPX data file delivered to you by Olink Analysis Services, or one generated with Olink® NPX Explore software, Olink® NPX Signature software or MyData. If you do not have access to an NPX file but would still like to explore the features of the application, you can use a sample data set which is available in the app (go to the About tab and select Use example data).

New in Olink® Insight – Study Size Calculator replaces Olink Power Tool

Before running any experiment, it is vital to design the experiment in a way that makes obtaining relevant results as likely as possible. For this statistical power is key. In the Study Size Calculator, Olink provides a web-based application to assist in power calculation for a balanced t-test and balanced one-way ANOVA.

At Olink, we also offer fee-for-service statistical services customized to your needs. Our team of biostatisticians can help you with customized statistical analysis to ensure that you maximize the value and information output from your studies run using Olink panels.

Olink® Analyze (R-package)

Olink® Analyze is an R package that provides a versatile toolbox to enable fast and easy handling of Olink NPX data for your proteomics research. Olink Analyze provides functions for using Olink data, including functions for importing Olink NPX datasets exported from NPX software, as well as quality control (QC) plot functions and functions for various statistical tests. This package is meant to provide a convenient pipeline for your Olink NPX data analysis.

If you have R programming skills, you can access Olink Analyze. Download it directly from CRAN, or install the package from R with the following commands:
