Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB UK) 28 April 2016
Emblation Limited, a global leader in the design and development of medical microwave technology, has been named “Innovator of the Year”, during the annual Business Insider Made in Scotland Awards, sponsored by The Royal Bank of Scotland. The ceremony was held at RBS Global Headquarters in Edinburgh on Thursday 21st April.
The “Innovator of the Year” award recognises the ground-breaking work Emblation has carried out in the field of microwave ablation, an emerging technology in the fight against cancer.
Having developed the smallest and safest medical microwave system available globally to-date, Emblation were approached by the world’s largest medical technology company to design a bespoke system for their next generation of tumour ablation products.
The technology is now in use worldwide, with thousands of treatments being carried out every month.
Securing the design, development and manufacturing of these products in Scotland was described as “an inspiring story” by the Business Insider & RBS Made in Scotland panel of judges.
“Safety is critical in all medical devices, but reducing the size and weight of medical microwave systems is significant – it allows the potential for cancer treatments to be more accessible than ever before,” said Gary Beale, Emblation CEO and co-founder.
“This award is a fantastic achievement and a symbol of the hard work, dedication and innovation that allows our company to break new ground – but it’s just the start for Emblation. Our platform technology has applications across medical fields including cardiology, dermatology and general surgery, and the Research team at Emblation has a number of technologies under development that will have a huge impact on healthcare globally in the coming years.”
The Business Insider Made in Scotland awards celebrates the achievements of the most pioneering organisations within the Scottish industry. The event highlights the most innovative products and services, from a diverse range of sectors, which are designed and manufactured in Scotland.
