Psomagen Joins Olink Proteomics' New Certified Service Provider Program


Rockville, Md, — April 18, 2024 — Psomagen is excited to announce our membership in the new Olink® Proteomics Certified Service Provider program.  Psomagen is one of the first North American members of the service provider program certified in all of Olink's available panels, including Explore HT, Explore 3072, Target, Flex, and Focus. 

Olink® panels make use of their proprietary proximity extension assay (PEA) technology, which uses antibodies with DNA tags to measure the protein profile in biofluids with high specificity. This has helped researchers make groundbreaking advancements in inflammation and disease studies. One of their newest offerings, Olink® Flex, is a highly customizable option for researchers investigating specific protein biomarkers. Researchers can follow up with an HT discovery experiment  by creating a panel specific for the new biomarkers discovered. Users can select up to 21 human proteins from a list of over 200, then combine them in one biomarker panel.

Joining this program means Psomagen has completed training and testing on Olink® panels. Lori Mull, Psomagen's Proteomics Product Manager, says, "We completed this stringent concordance testing to provide our customers with full confidence that Psomagen will handle their precious samples with the utmost care." 

"Expanding into proteomics was a natural progression for our business," says Matt Kramer, V.P. of Sales & Marketing at Psomagen.  "As our customers explore multiomics, so too must Psomagen.  Offering Olink® services enables our customers to add proteomic analysis to our existing services of genomics and transcriptomics.  The Olink® portfolio supports biomarker discovery (Explore HT) through targeted analysis utilizing our existing install base of Illumina NovaSeq X Plus NGS systems and chemistries — a natural match of hardware, expertise, and capabilities."

Psomagen is a long-time provider of Olink® Proteomics services, beginning with the onboarding of Olink® Target and Explore in 2021. By adding the Olink® library of panels to our product offerings, Psomagen provides our customers with access to biomarker discovery — at the correct scale, specificity, and customization for their needs.
