Roche Diagnostics and Nordic Bioscience have taken the next step in their partnership centered on the development of proprietary biomarkers involved in tissue breakdown and build-up, the latter firm has announced in a press release.

Nordic Bioscience develops Extracellular Matrix (ECM) biomarkers and will, under the expanded collaboration, transfer its blood-based biomarkers to Roche Diagnostics’s automated Cobas platform. According to the statement, this ”will facilitate better clinical decisions in drug development and patient selection as well as enrichment for precision medicine and ultimately improve patient outcomes.”
