MultiplexDX is the first company from the CEE region to become an honorable member of the Oslo Cancer Cluster (OCC). The cluster’s main mission is to improve cancer patients’ lives by accelerating the development of new diagnostics and treatment. It is a research-based industry cluster that brings together enterprises, organizations, academic and research institutions in the field of life sciences and converging industries like ICT. The members of OCC, which consist of over 90 companies worldwide, establish new knowledge and generate novel products and services including innovative solutions between research and business entities.
Dr. Pavol Cekan, Founder and CEO of MultiplexDX, comments:
“Being a member of OCC means to get powerful support for all innovation phases from early-stage development until commercialization. The cluster’s members represent the entire oncology value chain making it an ideal environment for launching new products! We are very excited to be part of this great alliance and look forward to sharing our experience as well as developing new opportunities for our innovations!”
Also, OCC membership facilitates the participation in international conferences, helps its members to showcase their R&D activities at professional forums and meetings, establishes direct connections between cluster members and relevant international partners, and initiates meetings with public authorities in order to influence the health authorities. If so desired by a member, Oslo Cancer Cluster may involve professional advisors, undertake management of intellectual property rights, including development, filing and maintenance activities relating to patents, negotiate the agreements with development and commercial partners, prepare a scientific & business pitch deck to engage with pharma OCC members. MultiplexDX plans to expand its new business team responsible for the interactions with OCC and that will help to facilitate Multiplex9+ market entry and to secure future companion DX projects.
