Alan Barge, Head of Oncology Development at AstraZeneca said: "This agreement, under the umbrella of AstraZeneca's Personalised Healthcare strategy, will enable us to develop novel, reimbursable products that can improve patients' lives. The alliance heralds the intentions of both companies to work closely together to develop new drugs linked to diagnostic tests that predict which patients are most likely to respond to treatment, ensuring that we are giving the right treatment, to the right patient, the first time."

Ruth March, Personalised Healthcare Leader at AstraZeneca, said: "This agreement is the first in a series of strategic alliances with diagnostic companies that will enable AstraZeneca to achieve our Personalised Healthcare aims and better serve patient health."
