CT EXPRES developed by Debiotech receives a Swiss Technology Award 2005.
(February 16, 2005)
The CT EXPRES Advanced Contrast Media Delivery System
received today the prestigious Swiss Technology Award. The prize was handed over in Bern
by Swiss officials and represents a significant recognition for the technology offered by
the CT Expres product developed in Switzerland and commercialized by Swiss Medical Care,
a spin-off of Debiotech.
A total of 16 Companies received the Swiss Technology
Award as recognition for the High Technology aspect of their product and potential to
significantly expand in the international markets. One of those Price Awards, in the field
of molecular biology, was also elected as Winner for 2005.
“This Price re-enforces the high technology aspect of our
CT Expres Advanced Contrast Media Delivery System and the contribution of High level Swiss
Engineers and Technicians to its successful achievement. It is also an important symbol of
how high technology disappears in end-user simplicity and patient safety” says Frédéric Neftel,
President and CEO of Debiotech. “We are extremely proud of bringing such a unique product
to the market and contribute to the image of Excellence and Quality which has always been at
the heart of Swiss Products”.
As prize holder, Swiss Medical Care has been invited
to represent Switzerland at the Medica Exhibition in Dusseldorf in 2005, the leading Medical
Device exhibition in Europe.
