VisionGate, Inc. has been named a gold winner in two categories in the Best in Biz Awards 2014, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. VisionGate was awarded gold in the Most Innovative Company of the Year (Small) category and in the Most Innovative Product of the Year (SMB) category.

Awarded for its innovative technology, VisionGate’s revolutionary Cell-CT® can take a bodily sample – sputum, urine, blood, etc. – and essentially take a CT scan of each individual cell, which automatically determines normals from abnormals. Currently, cells are seen in 2D on a glass slide. This technology is transformational in that it allows physicians and scientists to see an individual cell in 3D on a computer for the very first time, allowing for more accurate and earlier detection of disease.

VisionGate was awarded Most Innovative Product for its LuCED® test, a non-invasive, take-home test that aids physicians in the early detection of lung cancer, the world’s deadliest cancer. Whether as a first-line screening or used in conjunction with the CT scan to eliminate the false positives, it provides significant hope to those at risk for lung cancer and for the 20 percent who are not considered high-risk, but are diagnosed with lung cancer each year. VisionGate’s LuCED test will be available to the public in early 2015.

This is the first time VisionGate has won a Best in Biz award. Its fourth annual North American program, this year was its most competitive yet. As in previous years, the program featured a large and distinguished judging panel comprised of members of the media who reviewed and scored the hundreds of award nominations. More than 550 award nominations were received this year in a variety of company, executive, team and product-focused categories. Nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada.

“We are honored to be recognized in two categories by the Best in Biz Awards,” said VisionGate Founder & CEO Dr. Alan Nelson. “This award is a result of our commitment to innovation as well as our unique team of engineers and scientists who continue to develop technologies that have tremendous potential to save lives.”
