NeoGenomics, Inc. and Definiens Enter into Agreement to Develop Novel Assays for Clinical Trials and Clinical Testing

NeoGenomics, Inc. and Definiens announced that they have expanded their alliance to develop and automate the analysis of new biomarker assays for clinical trials and routine clinical testing. Under the agreement, Definiens will provide automated quantitative biomarker solutions to support NeoGenomics' immunohistochemistry services for both its Pharma Services customers and Clinical clients, helping to improve pathology interpretation, standardize the readout (analysis/scoring), and identify the signature for optimal biomarker cut point threshold. NeoGenomics excels in providing custom developed Immunohistochemistry (IHC) assays to be used in clinical trials, companion diagnostics and clinical testing. Automated IHC workflows, quantification, and interpretation tools remove variability of pathology scoring criteria and will allow researchers and pathologists a higher level of analytical consistency to standardize biomarker analysis for global clinical trials and clinical testing.
