Biovica, active in cancer monitoring, today announces that the company has signed a commercial partnership with the European distributor TOROMEDICAL group for the commercialization of the DiviTumTKa test for clinical routine use in the Netherlands and Poland. Launch preparations commence immediately.
Some 7,000 women are diagnosed with advanced breast cancer every year in the Netherlands. In Poland, it is estimated that about 8,000 women are diagnosed with advanced breast cancer every year in Poland (see ref 1 & 2).
“Partnering with TOROMEDICAL gives us fast access to both the Dutch and the Polish markets via their local salesforces. Furthermore, the agreement is a partnership rather than a regular distribution agreement to ensure fast sales uptake and solid market adoption. We are especially eager to take on the Dutch market where we have an ongoing countrywide study and strong KOL collaborations,” said Helle Fisker, VP Commercial for Biovica.
“Bringing DiviTum TKa to the Netherlands and Poland is very exciting for us as we see a great potential for the product, both for patients and commercially. We are well connected in the diagnostic and oncology space in both countries and we see an immediate need that DiviTum TKa can fulfill,” said Roberto Smotlak, CEO of TOROMEDICAL group.
