Biocare Wins Top of the Class 2010 – Histology & Automated Pathology

Biocare Medical is highly honored to accept the “Top of the Class” awards for both Histology and Automated Pathology* for 2010. These awards recognize our commitment to patient care and the highest quality Molecular Pathology and IHC products.

Biocare is dedicated to improving patient care by providing products for early and accurate cancer diagnosis and prognosis, supporting therapeutic decisions. We realize that each product we make and each result generated impacts a patient’s life. There are many people behind each test result: a patient anxiously awaiting the results of a diagnostic, prognostic or predictive test; a histologist depending on the accuracy and consistency of our products, to work every time; and a pathologist needing precise, crisp staining to solve difficult clinical problems.

Biocare Medical would like to thank the readers of ADVANCE for Administrators of the Laboratory for voting us your ‘Top of the Class’ company in both the Histology and Automated Pathology categories. These awards further encourage us to continue to strive for superior quality IHC and Molecular Pathology products and instrumentation.

Thanks to you, Biocare is the market leader in simultaneous Multiplex IHC tests, providing increased confidence in critical diagnostic decisions. We will continue to provide the highest quality products and excellent customer service to ensure that our products perform exactly as described. It is our commitment to deliver innovative products that address the rapidly growing cancer diagnostic and research markets.

We sincerely thank you for your continued recognition and dedicated support.

Biocare Medical ranks among the nation's 5000 fastest growing companies

Inc. magazine has ranked Biocare Medical No. 2984 on the 2009 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation. The company’s sales growth was 93.1% from 2005-2008. “We are thrilled to have achieved this prestigious recognition”, said Roy Paxton Yih, co-founder and CEO of Biocare Medical. “It is exciting to see that our key mission to advance patient care, by providing innovative and high-quality products and world-class customer service, is contributing to our company’s rapid success and growth. This adds to several honors Biocare has received in recent years including 4 ‘Top of the class’ awards since 2005 for high quality products and service from Advance for Administrators magazine and ranking as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in the East Bay.”
Since debuting in 1991, the Inc. magazine list of the most rapidly growing private companies has served evidence of the significant accomplishments of entrepreneurial companies. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Biocare Medical shares a prestigious pedigree with some of the most successful businesses in America.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”

Since its launch in 1997, Biocare Medical has made a significant leap towards achieving its goal of becoming the most trusted source for cancer diagnostics with strong commitment to patient care and the highest quality IHC and molecular pathology products.

The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to each company’s percentage of revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
