"Access to high quality clinical samples, along with technical risks in R&D projects, are the greatest challenges facing diagnostic companies."

"I recently ordered a set of DNA samples through the Medicines Discovery Catapult. They were very responsive and kept me informed throughout the process. I am pleased with the high quality samples I have received, and am already looking to order more samples from them again."
