Advanced Biological Laboratories and Mayo Medical Laboratories Announce Collaboration and Licensing Agreements

Advanced Biological Laboratories (ABL), S.A, and Mayo Medical Laboratories have announced a collaboration agreement to develop a deep-sequencing pipeline for novel diagnostic laboratory-developed tests. The novel tests will be validated using clinical samples selected by the Mayo Clinic Division of Clinical Microbiology. The collaboration will also seek to generate a sequence database to which clinical isolates can be compared. Advanced information technology developments will be led by ABL under the expertise of Mayo Clinic staff.
Based in Luxembourg, Advanced Biological Laboratories develops information technology and health solutions for patient management and sequencing data analysis. Mayo Medical Laboratories is the reference laboratory of Mayo Clinic, the world-renowned health care organization located in Rochester, Minnesota.
“Properly validated and characterized laboratory-developed tests offer valuable direction to clinicians and virologists. They guide the selection of optimal treatments and diagnostic monitoring for patients suffering from genetically variable virological diseases of either an acute or chronic nature,” says ABL Chief Executive Officer Chalom Sayada, M.D., Ph.D. “When developed in a timely manner, these tests can be crucial to improved clinical outcomes and decreases in treatment failures, adverse events, and healthcare costs.”

Mayo Clinic also receives access to a range of ABL’s virology products for genotyping data analysis, either from Sanger or Next Generation Sequencing. ABL’s products, ViroScore® Suite and DeepChek®, are for research use only in the United States, and the upcoming data processing module is an FDA registered class I medical device.
Financial terms of the agreements have not been disclosed.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
