The successful development and commercialization of personalized medicines often necessitate use of companion diagnostics (CDx).

Now more than ever, drug developers need an experienced global partner to advance CDxdevelopment, who understands how to navigate the technical, regulatory and commercialization nuances to enhance the chances of program success.
