About precision medicine and Janssen diagnostics

Advances in science and technology are bringing personalized medicine closer and closer. That is why, in 2012, Janssen created Janssen Diagnostics to advance this transformation in healthcare.

Janssen Diagnostics is a global team of multidisciplinary experts with a strong and diverse range of expertise across pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, who are dedicated to research and development (R&D), business development, registration, reimbursement requirements, market access, and commercialization of revolutionary diagnostic solutions. They develop diagnostic solutions which span the wellness and illness spectrum, from identifying those at risk of getting a disease, early screening, and disease interception, diagnosis, intervention, prognosis, drug therapy, response, and treatment to the development of diagnostics at the point of care.

Our diagnostics and health information experts work together closely with external partners because we are absolutely convinced that one company or organization on its own cannot determine the future of personalized medicine.

In the area of biosciences, we aim to put diagnostic technology and solutions into the hands of healthcare providers, so that they can identify illness sooner, intervene earlier, cure people living with chronic diseases, and potentially even prevent diseases before the onset of symptoms. This will mean better disease monitoring.n.

These tools can be ‘companion diagnostics’ (diagnostic tests which are essential for safe and effective use of a therapeutic product) or complementary diagnostics (diagnostic tests which provide information about a treatment to aid clinicians in the treatment of patients), but also include computer aids which provide state-of-the-art, real-world evidence to enable superior decision-making in managing illness.

Janssen Diagnostics invests heavily in R&D and develops commercialization strategies and implementation models for precision medicine solutions in Janssen’s five therapeutic areas of focus:

  • Cardiovascular & Metabolism
  • Immunology
  • Infectious diseases & Vaccines
  • Neuroscience
  • Oncology
