Nov. 23 2023

    In the development process of innovative drugs, the accompanying diagnosis is like a indicating lamp, which not only speeds up the efficiency of research and development, but also improves the success rate. In recent years, with the continuous innovation and iteration of gene sequencing technology, sequencing efficiency and cost have achieved a leap breakthrough at the speed of "supermoore's law", the model of traditional drug research and development is constantly being updated, and precision medicine has also ushered in a stage of rapid development.

 As a leader in the overall solution of companion diagnosis, MEDx Translational Medicine was invited to participate in the fourth stop of the "Gathering Force Innovation, Drawing a new picture of Cancer Medical Care - illumina Medical Innovation Series Salon" recently held in Shanghai. At the meeting, Dr. Pang Zhenguo, Director of MEDx Translational Medicine Molecular Center, shared the report entitled "Sharing of illumina Pharmaceutical Company Service Experience based on illumina TSO500".
