Omics Research


Study protein expression as part of a systems-level multiomics approach for quicker and more fruitful discoveries.


Let’s Talk About Proteomics

What is Proteomics?

Proteomics is the study of all the expressed proteins in an organism (proteome). 


This includes the presence or absence of specific proteins and expression levels over time, driven by external stressors, treatments, and/or disease state progression.


Why is Studying Proteomics Important?


Protein expression is directly associated with the potential for disease, its manifestation, and reversion to a normal state. 


As part of a multiomics approach along with genomics and transcriptomics, proteomics provides a much more impactful evaluation of an organism at a systems level and hence will lead to quicker and more fruitful discoveries, while helping to identify key clinical and treatment outcomes.


New technologies are being developed to increase sensitivity and throughput beyond Mass Spec, and this is where Olink® and their Proximity Extension Assay (PEA) comes in.

What Can You Do?

Go Beyond Mass Spec

When high throughput and low hands-on time are critical, characterize proteins using Olink methodologies.

Identify Proteomes

Apply the power of NGS sequencing to characterize and quantitate the totality of proteins in your sample.

Initial Screens and More

Access a wide variety of strategic, protein-focused evaluations to suit your needs.

One-Sample Multiomics

Perform genomic and proteomic interrogation with a small amount of material.
