We evolve into a very demanding field of activity where at the bottom line there is a patient putting his recovery hopes in doctors’ hands. Innovation is only useful as long as it serves these two individuals struggling for life: the patient and his doctor. We dedicate all our efforts to reach this major goal: improve diagnosis for life. These are not just words; it is the core or our mission at Olea Medical®. Being elected as the winner of the European Business Award for Innovation is a major accolade for our team, clients, partners, investors, and our country. It also strengthens our confidence in the choices and the decisions we make every day to push innovation further for the ultimate benefit of patients worldwide”.
