Targeted biomarker analysis

Olink® Target 96 & 48

Accelerate targeted protein biomarker research through high-multiplex immunoassays, providing uncompromised data quality and performance.

Olink® Target 96 & 48 panels for targeted protein biomarker discovery enable faster, better-informed decisions in human protein biomarker research by providing high-multiplex immunoassays that do not compromise on either data quality or performance. Identifying multiple proteins that form a signature is more powerful and reliable than looking at a single protein.

How does it work?

The unique technology behind the Olink platforms, Proximity Extension Assay (PEA) technology, is an innovative dual recognition, DNA-coupled methodology providing exceptional readout specificity. PEA enables high multiplex, rapid throughput biomarker analysis without compromising on data quality.
