Interpreting service could boost Danish drug company’s endeavour

Delivering a product to countries all over the world is a project that could be improved with the use of a professional interpreting service.

Denmark-based Dako may well have reaped the rewards of such assistance when negotiating a recent agreement with global distribution company Quintiles.

The alliance will develop medicines and diagnostic products with a view to improving the prescription of personalised medicine for people suffering from tissue-based cancer.

Senior vice-president of Quintiles Global Central Laboratories, Thomas Wollman, said: "By pairing our core competencies … we can help physician investigators select the right patients for the right clinical trials."

This practice will help speed the process of manufacturing treatments in biomarker discovery and translational medicine, he continued.

News of this agreement comes after Dako announced it would join forces with Royal Philips Electronics to produce digital pathology solutions that can be integrated into hospital departments with a view to making them more efficient.
