Evotec expands service agreement with Sanofi to create a centralised global sample management hub in Toulouse

Evotec SE announced plans to extend its sample management activities through an expansion of its service agreement with Sanofi.

Evotec has had a successful track record of managing Sanofi’s powder compounds at its Toulouse site since 2015. Under the terms of the new agreement, Sanofi will transfer its liquid compounds to Evotec in Toulouse over the next 2 years. Evotec will house the Sanofi compound collections in Toulouse combining central storage efficiency with sample delivery supported by next generation, cutting-edge technologies e.g. acoustic tubes. This expanded strategy will deliver cost efficiencies through the minimisation of redundancies and realisation of synergies between sites.

Dr Craig Johnstone, Chief Operating Officer of Evotec, commented: “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Sanofi. It’s a significant step forward to synergise and centralise core drug discovery processes for better efficiency and to enhance our sample management expertise with the latest dispensing technologies. We look forward to continuing to deliver the highest quality sample management service for Sanofi and for our other clients.”
