Agilent, Pfizer to be Diagnostic Partners

Agilent Technologies Inc. said Tuesday that it will work with Pfizer Inc., the biggest drug company in the world, to develop diagnostic tests.

Agilent said its Dako division will help develop so-called companion diagnostic tests, which are designed to help physicians decide how to treat patients by showing which treatments they might respond to.

The companies did not disclose terms of the deal.

Dako is based in Denmark and it focuses on cancer diagnostics. In January the company said it would work with Eli Lilly & Co. to develop a test that can identify cancer patients who might benefit from an experimental cancer drug Lilly is developing.
