What is the Negative Control composed of and how is it used in the data analysis in Olink Explore?

Negative Control for Olink Explore is also included in triplicate on each plate and consists of buffer run as a normal sample. These are used to monitor any background noise generated when DNA-tags come in close proximity without prior binding to the appropriate protein. The negative controls set the background levels for each protein assay and are used to calculate the limit of detection (LOD).
