Press release: UPPSALA, Sweden, November 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Olink Holding AB (publ) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced that it is now starting the delivery of Olink® Signature Q100, facilitating hands-on access for researchers to Olink technology with a new benchtop system dedicated to multiplex protein biomarker measurement.
Olink® Signature Q100 now offers a new solution designed for readout of Olink® Target and Olink® Focus protein biomarker panels, enabling researchers to run Olink kits more easily and conveniently in their own labs using as little as one microliter of plasma or serum to measure protein concentrations for up to 92 proteins simultaneously. This new instrument will allow more researchers to access high-quality proteomics data with Olink technology.
“The Signature instrument has been very well received since orders started earlier this year and we are pleased to see how our customers are showing interest in this new product. Beta tests have been performed at six customer’s labs, and the data obtained shows that Olink® Target and Focus products perform very well in this compact, benchtop format,“ says Jon Heimer, CEO of Olink Proteomics.
This is one of Olink’s many developments currently underway to provide a broader offering of application-focused mid-plex solutions and more flexible customer offerings. It demonstrates Olink’s commitment to innovate and improve across all aspects of our growing portfolio, to better serve the needs of our customers within protein biomarker research.
“The Signature instrument is a welcome addition to the Olink family. Its small footprint, ease of use, and user-friendly interface make it a great addition to any lab performing Olink analysis,” says Tara Bryce, Operations Manager, CRLB-GMEL Clinical Research Laboratory & Biobank – Genetic & Molecular Epidemiology Laboratory, Hamilton, Canada.
Developed specifically for the high quality of Olink® Target 96/48 and Focus (custom designed) protein biomarker panels, as well as future custom biomarker solutions presently under development – currently covering over 1100 different thoroughly validated protein assays
Low investment threshold, broadening access to protein biomarker analysis to more researchers than ever before
User-focused design and intuitive interface, including integrated software and IFC loader

Olink Signature Q100
Olink® Signature Q100 is a newly developed instrument for readout of Olink® Target 96/48 and Olink® Focus protein biomarker panels. Previously, readout of these panels has been exclusively carried out using the multi-functional Fluidigm® Biomark™ instrument – Olink Signature Q100 now offers a new, dedicated solution for qPCR readout of Olink panels that will enable researchers to run Olink kits more easily and conveniently in their own labs.
