The Agreement Aims to Accelerate the Continuum of Diagnostic Biomarker Discovery through to Assay Development and Clinical Testing
Biognosys, a leader in next-generation proteomics solutions for drug discovery and development, announces today that it has established a strategic agreement with Siemens Healthineers, a global medical technology company, through its clinical laboratory in Berkeley, California. The agreement leverages Biognosys’ expertise in unbiased biomarker discovery technologies and solutions with Siemens Healthineers’ biomarker assay development, lab testing, and commercialization capabilities.
Oliver Rinner, PhD, CEO and founder of Biognosys states: “With this agreement we can enable our biopharmaceutical customers to use the power of our proprietary discovery proteomics solution for novel biomarker identification and bring these biomarkers into clinical applications with Siemens Healthineers’ diagnostic assay development expertise.”
Using Biognosys’ proprietary Hyper Reaction Monitoring (HRMTM) mass spectrometry technology, thousands of proteins may be quantified simultaneously from a broad range of clinical sample types. HRM enables an unmatched depth of proteome coverage with reproducible and precise quantification to identify the most promising, actionable biomarkers to support clinical decision making. This discovery proteomics solution can be applied with high throughput in large-scale studies involving thousands of samples.
The strategic agreement enables discovery of novel biomarkers via the HRM technology followed by translation into validated biomarker assays for potential clinical applications. This may include clinical trials usage and In Vitro Diagnostics development programs.
Sebastian Kronmueller, Head of Siemens Healthcare Laboratory in California, commented: “We are excited about this relationship with Biognosys because their expertise and unique biomarker discovery capabilities are very complementary to our end-to-end diagnostic solutions for our biopharmaceutical customers.”
