"Sebia has continued over the past few years to grow and strengthen its leadership position in myeloma diagnostic and monitoring while developing and launching innovative solutions to improve the diagnostic of heamoglobin disorders. I am very happy to be partnering once again with Astorg and Montagu who have demonstrated in the past their willingness and capacity to back Sebia's development.
