Tepnel’s biomarker services portfolio is focussed on biomarker discovery, personalised medicine and the development of companion diagnostic products. We offer a broad range of services for the identification of biomarkers, assay development, validation and companion diagnostic development in support of genomic research, clinical trials and personalised medicine.
We can support all stages of the companion diagnostics development process including design control, kit manufacture, validation studies and production. All our services can be run as “Research Use Only” or as a regulatory compliant service, GCP, for application in a clinical setting.
The use of our biomarker discovery, validation and diagnostic development expertise in combination with novel therapeutics will improve patient outcomes and have a fundamental impact on patient health.
