Siemens Medical Solutions has opened the Siemens Medical Solutions Molecular Imaging Biomarker Research facility, a state-of-the-art center that is dedicated to the development of molecular imaging biomarkers.

Biomarkers are increasingly becoming diagnostic tools for identifying diseases such as cancer and neurological diseases at their earliest stages.

The company hopes to become a full-service diagnostic company by integrating in vivo and in vitro imaging diagnostics capabilities.

The new facility will be dedicated solely to the discovery and development of new imaging biomarkers to spur the growth of in vivo molecular diagnostics.
