SPT Labtech and Olink introduced an additional automation option for the Olink® Explore HT protocol for high-throughput proteomics with SPT Labtech’s firefly® liquid handling platform.

The combination of the Olink Explore platform with SPT Labtech automated liquid handling enables swift and precise execution of large-scale proteomics studies, spanning all crucial biological pathways, according to officials at both companies. The technologies allow researchers to generate high-throughput multiplexed protein biomarker analysis to make quick data-driven decisions quickly, explained Joby Jenkins, CTO at SPT Labtech, adding that the ability to miniaturize reactions without compromising accuracy, in combination with low dead volumes, uncovers new scientific insights consuming as little as 2 µL sample.

The Stratified Medicine Core Laboratory (SMCL) NGS Hub at the University of Cambridge will be the first to develop Olink Explore protocols on firefly.

“We’re looking forward to implementing automated Olink Explore HT workflows on firefly,” stated Ana Toribio, SMCL NGS Hub manager. The addition of firefly will support us in providing comprehensive and expert NGS services through our partnerships with leading academic, clinical, and commercial organizations.”

“The addition of firefly as an option for automation of the Olink Explore HT protocol offers researchers with further capabilities and flexibility: the firefly platform provides a combination of pipetting, non-contact dispensing, shaking and temperature-controlled incubation capabilities in a compact benchtop footprint,” according to Jenkins. “Its versatility is further bolstered by intuitive software operation and cloud-enabled collaboration, to set a new benchmark in laboratory efficiency and accessibility to automation.”
