Congratulations to Lightpoint Medical for winning the Technology Innovation of the Year Award, sponsored by City law firm Fox Williams LLP, at the UK Private Business Awards 2017.
The medical device company was announced as the winner at yesterday evening’s awards ceremony, hosted at The Brewery in London. Lightpoint Medical faced strong competition with each of the six finalists representing a spectrum of industries, but their innovative technology saw them emerge victorious.
Lightpoint Medical, founded in 2012, is dedicated to improving health outcomes for cancer patients through molecular-guided surgery. The company’s intraoperative molecular imaging and sensing technologies have the potential to detect cancer in real time during surgery and thereby reduce the need for repeat operations.
The award was presented by Richie Clark, head of Fox Williams’ corporate group and member of the UKPBA judging panel, who said, “Lightpoint Medical winning this award is a fantastic achievement. Using ground-breaking technology, they have created an innovative product which demonstrates creativity and puts them ahead of their competition. The future looks very bright for Lightpoint Medical and the fight against cancer.”
