Roche and Janssen Join Forces to Empower Personalised Healthcare with Innovative Diagnostics

Roche and Janssen Biotech Inc. are collaborating to bring the next level of precision medicine to patients. By creating companion diagnostics for targeted therapies, Roche and Janssen are striving to advance research and innovation and make treatment more precise. This expanded collaboration aims to improve patient outcomes and provide better care.

Roche and Janssen have expanded their agreement to explore the potential of precision medicine, incorporating a range of companion diagnostics technologies, including immunohistochemistry, digital pathology, next-generation sequencing, polymerase chain reaction and immunoassays. This collaboration promises to bring a wealth of new opportunities for both companies to innovate and develop treatments tailored to individual patient needs.

Roche Diagnostics is leading the charge in revolutionizing healthcare through collaboration with industry leaders around the world. As Head of Pathology Lab at Roche Diagnostics, Jill German is at the forefront of this effort, with the goal of improving personalized healthcare through the development of more targeted, effective tests. Together, we are taking strides towards making better treatments more accessible to those who need them.

This collaboration will open the door to exciting new projects, such as data and tissue image analysis, and the development of a novel IHC assay for patient identification and enrollment for personalized treatment. By combining our expertise, we can explore and create innovative solutions that have the potential to revolutionize healthcare.
