What is the main difference between proteomics sequencing using Olink technology compared with traditional DNA sequencing?

Olink uses NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) as a tool to measure the relative concentration of specific protein biomarkers in a sample. During the sample and library preparation, short stretches of DNA with a unique sequence for each protein biomarker are produced. After sequencing, the number of counts (reads) for a specific DNA sequence is proportional to the original protein biomarker concentration.
