The partnership - unveiled at the 21st European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases 2011 (ECCMID 2011) in Milan, Italy - will enable the two companies to provide high quality screening of anti-infectives all the way from in vitro activity assays, efficacy and resistance profiling through validated models of human disease to surveillance and clinical investigations, with full scientific support.

Sharing a number of joint customers, the synergy created through this collaboration will enable both companies to carry out larger integrated studies with associated added value and efficiencies for their clients. 

Prof. Neil Williams, Director of Science at KWS BioTest, is excited to formalise an agreement with Quotient. He commented: "Both companies have established themselves on a basis of providing a high quality of service, scientific understanding and support to their clients."
