After inking a similar deal with Dako earlier in the month, Quintiles announced this week that it would collaborate with pharmacogenetics firm London Genetics to provide personalized medicine services to drug developers. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The companies will provide biomarker and assay development services and consulting to biopharmas through a new alliance.

Dako and Quintiles have joined forces to develop companion diagnostics and drugs and to work with pharma to bring personalized medicine products to market.

As part of the new program, Illumina will provide the microarrays and reagents, and Expression Analysis will perform services and data analysis consultation relating to the genome-wide association studies, in both cases at no cost to the recipient.

Dako will develop cancer diagnostic tests, which Quintiles will perform as part of the clinical validation.
