Formulatrix® and Olink® Announce Collaboration to Deliver Automated Proteomics Research Solutions to Enable Protein Detection with Exceptional Precision and Speed

Formulatrix, a leader in innovative automated liquid handling technologies, announced a multi-year collaboration and supply agreement to advance the automation of Olink’s PEA (Proximity Extension Assay) technology, including the Target 96, Target 48, Flex, and Explore workflows. The agreement sets forth terms for the supply of certain Formulatrix products and services for purchase by Olink and Olink’s end-customers, as part of an Olink Package involving configuration of such products to Olink workflows. 

Olink Proximity Extension Assay (PEA) technology enables high-throughput, multiplex measurement of proteins using minimal volumes of serum, plasma, and many other biological sample types. Using antibodies tagged with unique DNA sequences, PEA allows researchers to perform precise protein detection using qPCR or NGS systems, greatly expanding access to proteomics for deeper biological insights into drug discovery and personalized medicine.

The F.A.S.T. (Flow Axial Seal Tip) by Formulatrix is a reliable and easy-to-use automated liquid transfer system designed to quickly move liquids of any viscosity with its unique positive displacement tips driven by a 96-channel head. With its best-in-class accuracy, precision, and reliability for low-volume sample transfers (down to 0.1 μL with 5% CVs), the F.A.S.T. system is now a validated solution for Olink IFCs and PEA Target and Explore workflows The system also automates tedious serial dilution steps for accurate sample preparation. 

Dr. Pouria Jandaghi at McGill University highlights the impact of this Olink and Formulatrix collaboration:  “The F.A.S.T. Liquid Handler’s integration with the Olink platform was seamless, delivering exceptional precision and speed while dramatically reducing our research timelines. The flexibility of the F.A.S.T. across various Olink kits, including Target 48 and 96, Explore 3072, and Explore-HT, further empowers us by tailoring experiments to our specific needs, all within a single, streamlined workflow, which opens exciting doors for future scientific discoveries.”​​​​​​​

This agreement goes beyond integrating Olink's PEA workflows with the F.A.S.T. platform. It underscores Formulatrix's unwavering commitment to excellence by ensuring robust performance through the F.A.S.T. system's inherent reliability and durability. This commitment extends further, providing Olink's customers with access to Formulatrix's industry-leading support network. This dedication to researchers sets high standards for customer support in the life sciences community.
