AES Medical has been awarded an exceptional SMART (Small Firms Merit Award for Research and Technology) award from the UK Department of Trade and Industry. A restricted number of Smart Awards are given to innovative technologies in order to establish their feasibility in wider applications. These prestigious awards are granted in recognition of new products or processes which involve a significant technological advance.
The award is for the development of an Intelligent Cancer Reporting Universal System. Exceptional Projects involve technology developments which have higher costs. These projects are likely to generate much wider economic benefits and must have strategic importance for a technology or industrial sector.
The product to be known as PathoSys® draws upon the experience gained by AES Medical with the Inflammatory Bowel Disease diagnosis project and will provide comprehensive Pathology Cancer Reporting and Information Management capabilities.
