Is Diagnostics the New Biotech...and Will Pharma Embrace It?

The early biotech industry thrived on a combination of hope and hype while diagnostics, which evolved using many of the same tools, was traditionally viewed -- and priced -- almost as a commodity. Now we're seeing the advent of complex, high-value diagnostics. As the techniques underlying tests increase in their biological complexity and the knowledge base of their developers about specific disease areas deepens, is the value proposition becoming more biotech-like?

What's Fueling The Recent Diagnostics Dealmaking?

A variety of new players have become active dealmakers around personalized medicine diagnostics tests and services. One way to put these deals in context is to view the acquired assets through the lens of how they are to be deployed. To a large extent, the transactions are being driven by the interests of drugmakers, which are seeking new tools to assist them in clinical trials, thus creating more opportunity for the acquirers to offer clinical development services.
