Arquer Diagnostics is delighted to announce our status as shortlisted finalists for the NHS’s Bright Ideas in Health Awards 2017. The entry, “A Non-Invasive Urine Based Test for Bladder Cancer” has earned a place in the “Outstanding Industry Collaboration with the NHS” category.
About the Bright Ideas In Health Awards
Now in it’s 14th year, these awards celebrate the achievements and successes of teams or individuals within the industry, academia and the NHS. Entrants all have one thing in common: they believe that improvements can and need to be made to patient services, either through changing service delivery or through technical innovation.
This is where the Arquer DX team have excelled and been recognised by the judges, through the development of ADXBLADDER: a non-invasive, reliable, cost-effective, and accurate alternative to the traditional cystoscopy test for bladder cancer.
The “Outstanding Industry Collaboration with the NHS” Category
This category specifically recognises new developments which have been created through industry and NHS collaborations, and have delivered significant benefits to NHS patients compared to current standard of care treatments.
In the case of ADXBLADDER, the Arquer Diagnostics team have developed a real game changer in bladder cancer diagnosis. The test has been clinically proven to demonstrate fantastic accuracy and could have a key role in helping identify bladder cancer patients earlier, which may have a positive impact on survival.
The Arquer DX Team
This finalist status is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Arquer Diagnostics team and we are delighted to see that our passion and commitment to improving diagnostic standards and patient care has been recognised in this award listing.
The awards evening will take place at the Hilton Hotel Newcastle Gateshead on Wednesday November 15th where our team look forward to celebrating the achievements throughout the industry. Wish us luck!
