Knowing the challenge which is the quantification and the localization of analytes, including biomarkers, in skin, we consider that ImaBiotech
technologies can lead us quicker to better and safer products.”
Dr Jonathan Stauber, CEO of ImaBiotech adds ”We are more than proud to become a partner of Galderma, world-known as a major pharmaceutical company. This new partnership is a proof that our company and its Multimaging™ technology have become key players in the Molecular imaging field in less than a year.”
