Almac's solutions are to support biopharma companies in adopting biomarker strategies to enable them to better understand their drug, improve their drug's success rate, improve the drug's value and ultimately maximise their drug's potential.

Biomarkers for biopharma solutions include pharmacodynamic solutions, patient selection markers, assay development and bioinformatics / biostatistics consultancy.

For these companies, it is of critical importance that they maximise the potential success of the drugs in their pipeline and the incorporation of a biomarker strategy enables them to do this."
