LabCorp and Unilabs Collaborate to Expand Global Reach of Precision Medicine Capabilities to Serve Patients, Physicians and Pharma

Del

LabCorp® (NYSE: LH), a leading global life sciences company, and Unilabs, a leading European provider of clinical laboratory testing and medical diagnostic imaging services, announced a strategic collaboration to provide expanded global development and delivery of companion diagnostics. This collaboration broadens the network of laboratories used by biopharmaceutical companies to support companion diagnostic development and commercialization. The purpose of the collaboration is to expand access to commercialization channels for companion diagnostics in North America and Europe, and accelerate the adoption of companion diagnostics. The companies will use globally harmonized processes to simplify the technical, regulatory and clinical complexities associated with these critical assays. The companies expect the first application of these processes will be in oncology, particularly immuno-oncology.

LabCorp, an established leader in the development and commercialization of companion diagnostics, processes more than 2.5 million patient specimens per week, collected from clinician offices and hospitals and via its own network of nearly 2,000 patient service centers, more than 5,000 in-office phlebotomists and a growing retail presence. Unilabs, a European leader, has more than 230 laboratories in 15 countries and 350 customer service locations, and processes more than 188 million diagnostic tests each year.

The collaboration will initially focus on the commercial availability of assays that have been developed and validated both analytically and clinically by LabCorp and Covance, LabCorp’s drug development business. Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.

“Companion diagnostics are an essential component of precision medicine, enabling physicians to identify the patients who are most likely to benefit from targeted and novel therapies,” said David P. King, LabCorp chairman and CEO. “With this collaboration, we are capitalizing on the scientific and operational strengths of two leaders in companion diagnostics to benefit biopharmaceutical clients who need global solutions for precision medicine, with the ultimate goal of improving health and improving lives for patients around the world.”

“Our collaboration with LabCorp addresses the need for global harmonization and combined capabilities, including scientific expertise, operational excellence and timely availability of high-quality companion diagnostic services,” said Unilabs CEO, Jos Lamers. “With our extensive laboratory network and geographical footprint, we enable clients to accelerate their precision medicine development and commercialization efforts. Our combined ability to bridge the time gaps between development phase and drug approval, and to national reimbursement, by offering a centralized laboratory testing facility, gives our respective customers the advantage of early adoption of their drug. The intimate knowledge of local testing standards, regulatory and quality requirements and navigating logistical challenges will ensure instant access to high-quality testing. This facilitates embracing of a new test in the clinic thereby removing critical barriers for a new treatment.”
