Towards a better understanding of cardiovascular disease and personalized medicine
The Cardiovascular III (CVD III) panel offers simultaneous analysis of 92 protein biomarkers using just 1 µL of biological sample, and all assays are subject to Olink’s strict technical validation and QC control procedures.
This panel contains known human cardiovascular and inflammatory markers as well as some exploratory human proteins with great potential as new CVD markers, which were carefully selected in collaboration with leading experts in the field. Each analyte in the panel has been assessed in terms of sample material, specificity, precision, sensitivity, dynamic range, matrix effects and interference. The assays on this panel have been selected to focus on high-abundance proteins, and 1 µL of a 1:100 dilution of sample is used to measure the 92 biomarkers.
Please Note: the CVD III panel uses a 1:100 dilution of sample, whereas our technical validation assays are performed in vitro using recombinant analytes . Technical validation data reported on the biomarker pages below, and in the data validation document for this panel are based on these in vitro assays. A multiplication factor of 100 should therefore be taken into consideration when comparing the addressable biological concentration to the in vitro validation data. (Sample dilution guidelines can be found in the User Manual.)
An overview of how the 92 biomarker assays in the panel are classified according to Biological Process, Disease Area, Tissue Expression and Protein Class (based on widely used public-access bioinformatic databases, including Uniprot, Human Protein Atlas,Gene Ontology (GO) and DisGeNET) can be seen in the charts below. These charts areinteractive: click on a chart-bar or pie-segment to see the list of biomarkers in that classification. Each item in the list links to the detailed biomarker page with validation data. Please note that these classifications are intended for general guidance only and while correct at the time of publication, they are not updated in real-time and you are advised to always check the source databases in order to see the latest updates regarding the information for specific proteins.

Our biomarker assay panels are available with the flexibility to best suit your needs. You can choose whether to purchase the panels as kits and run them in your own lab, or send your sample the experts at one of the many certified labs around the world offering sample analysis service.
The biomarker pages linked to below include calibrator curves that show the performance of each assay with the estimated sensitivity and dynamic range parameters indicated. These curves are generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens, with data presented as Normalized Protein eXpression (NPX) values plotted against protein concentration (in pg/mL). Please note that when analyzing biological samples the data generated will be given in the form of relative quantification (NPX values) and cannot be converted to absolute protein concentrations.
