Notably, the R&I Institute was responsible for the development of the first FDA-approved companion diagnostic immunoassay. The establishment of this dedicated innovation hub marks a significant step forward for ARUP as it redoubles its commitment to fostering creativity and discovery. Innovation plays a pivotal role in the creation of reliable tests, which are crucial for both medical practitioners and patients, ultimately contributing to the delivery of high-quality healthcare. The ultimate goal is to enhance outcomes for the millions of patients who receive care from ARUP each year.
