With Genoptix, Novartis Continues Its Diagnostics Build-up

The acquisition adds muscle to its existing Molecular Diagnostics unit. Coming just months after GE grabbed up Clarient, it is another example of the value of a specialty cancer services testing operation to an organization looking to bolster channel access to oncologists and pathologists.
