IVDR – Almac can also give Pharma partners up to date guidance and support for your biomarker programmes around IVDR and compliance with the new regulations for Europe.

Almac Diagnostic Services has updated all CTA and CDx processes to be compliant with the new IVDR. We have ensured any legacy devices CE marked under the IVDD are maintained in such a manner as to be available throughout the transition period to allow trials to continue seamlessly despite changes from the previous directive to the IVDR.
