"The core of this collaboration unites the power of Definiens' AI-based biomarker analysis and data science expertise with Targos' vast experience in tissue-based biomarker analysis  and application in global clinical trials," said Dr. Thomas Henkel, Chief Executive Officer of Targos. "Further joint development of novel multiplexing immunohistological protocols under GCP guidance together with Definiens' unique ability to integrate spatial immune cell distribution and multi-omics analytics will provide new innovative tools spanning from research to the development of new companion diagnostics in immuno-oncology."
