Experience predicting and assessing a patient’s response to checkpoint inhibitors is an integral function to immuno-oncology drug development. Once a tissue sample is received, central AP testing is performed and data can be mined for immuno-oncology characterizations, such as PD-L1 proteins or tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.  We then take those characterizations and apply them to drug studies, such as the creation of predictive biomarkers for patient selection.

Shaping outcomes

Q2 Solutions has the breadth and depth of scientific experience and expertise across all major therapeutic areas, which help drug developers effectively gain a competitive advantage – helping ensure your success in clinical trials, regulatory approvals and new product launches.

We’re able to go a step further with our capability to validate, transfer, and employ new assays to meet today’s development opportunities. These abilities add significant value as we develop new assays for your trials. Learn more about our global Anatomic Pathology lab services.
