Providing an Agile Approach to Diagnostic Platform and Method Selection

MolecularMD collaborates with the most prominent platform manufacturers, and has development agreements in place that enable a path to an in-vitro diagnostic designation for codeveloped diagnostic assays. MMD pursues Certified Service Provider designations from best in class platform companies which ensures laboratory proficiency and provides a higher level of technical support. It is MMD’s philosophy to collaborate and partner with a diverse range of diagnostic platform manufacturers in order to have access to the technologies that best fits its clients’ needs for clinical trial assays and in-vitro diagnostics. Limiting a drug program to a single diagnostic platform early in the development of a diagnostic assay can lead to higher costs and can introduce unnecessary risks. MMD’s solutions are designed to manage the risk and uncertainty associated with the oncology codevelopment process and are agile, capable of adapting to changes in strategy. Platform diversity combined with broad development and deployment capabilities are attributes that our clients value. MMD leverages technologies that address all major types of biomarkers and pair them with the most ideal diagnostic platforms and validated methods available.
