The Molecular Diagnostics Partnering Terms and Agreements report provides a detailed understanding and analysis of how and why companies enter molecular diagnostics partnering deals. These deals tend to be multicomponent, starting with collaborative R&D, and commercialization of outcomes.  
 
This report provides details of the latest molecular diagnostics agreements announced in the healthcare sectors.
 
Understanding the flexibility of a prospective partner’s negotiated deals terms provides critical insight into the negotiation process in terms of what you can expect to achieve during the negotiation of terms. Whilst many smaller companies will be seeking details of the payments clauses, the devil is in the detail in terms of how payments are triggered - contract documents provide this insight where press releases and databases do not. 

This report contains a comprehensive listing of all molecular diagnostics partnering deals announced since 2009 including financial terms where available including over 300 links to online deal records of actual molecular diagnostics partnering deals as disclosed by the deal parties. In addition, where available, records include contract documents as submitted to the Securities Exchange Commission by companies and their partners.
 
Contract documents provide the answers to numerous questions about a prospective partner’s flexibility on a wide range of important issues, many of which will have a significant impact on each party’s ability to derive value from the deal.
 
For example, analyzing actual company deals and agreements allows assessment of the following:
 
  • What is actually granted by the agreement to the partner company?
  • What exclusivity is granted?
  • What are the precise rights granted or optioned?
  • What is the payment structure for the deal?
  • How aresalesand payments audited?
  • What is the deal term?
  • How are the key terms of the agreement defined?
  • How are IPRs handled and owned?
  • Who is responsible for commercialization?
  • Who is responsible for development, supply, and manufacture?
  • How is confidentiality and publication managed?
  • How are disputes to be resolved?
  • Under what conditions can the deal be terminated?
  • What happens when there is a change of ownership?
  • What sublicensing and subcontracting provisions have been agreed?
  • Which boilerplate clauses does the company insist upon?
  • Which boilerplate clauses appear to differ from partner to partner or deal type to deal type?
  • Which jurisdiction does the company insist upon for agreement law?
 
The initial chapters of this report provide an orientation of drug dealmaking and business activities. 

Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the report, whilst
