“We are honored to have been selected as LSO’s 2019 Life Science Company of the Year and I’m especially pleased for our 54-person team who have worked tirelessly to create and commercialize a technology that is changing lives and, through our customers, changing outcomes,” said Randy AuCoin, Exact Imaging’s president and CEO. “We are incredibly proud to be a Canadian-based company and are appreciative of the amazing ecosystem of medical device suppliers, partners and experts in Ontario who make up our extended family.”
The LSO awards will be presented to Exact Imaging during LSO’s Celebration of Success Awards Dinner at Toronto’s Liberty Grand on February 27, 2019. Life Sciences Ontario, a not-for=profit, is dedicated to advocating for public policy that advances the province’s life sciences sector.
