Michelson Diagnostics Opens US Offices And Appoints US Business Development Manager
Orpington, UK, June 23rd, 2009: Michelson Diagnostics Limited (MDL) announced today that it has opened a sales and support office in the USA. The office is located in Fuquay-Varina, (in the Research Triangle vicinity of Raleigh-Durham), North Carolina, and is headed by Kevin C. Oakley, Business Development Manager (US) for Michelson Diagnostics.
The new office will act as a hub for growth of MDL’s business in the field of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging, which has great applications potential in fields such as skin cancer diagnosis, genetics research and tissue engineering development. The company has no FDA-approved clinical products yet, but is selling an OCT microscope for the scientific research market and recently announced the ‘VivoSight’ in-vivo OCT probe, for which it expects clinical approvals to be granted in Europe imminently.
"We already have US sales and are experiencing rapid growth of US enquiries in multiple market segments," said Jon Holmes, CEO of Michelson Diagnostics Ltd, "so it makes sense for us to establish a US presence to enable us to pursue these opportunities more effectively and to provide US customers with local support and service."
Michelson’s latest recruit, Kevin C. Oakley, is an experienced medical imaging executive, with a background in expanding markets and growing sales for small companies with highly innovative medical imaging products. His extensive career includes senior executive positions at Richardson Electronics Ltd. (Medical SBU), InfiMed, Inc., Lodox Systems, Ltd., and TeraRecon Inc.
"Michelson Diagnostics has applied their outstanding technology to forward thinking products and I am extremely pleased to be representing the company in the US," said Mr Oakley. "Michelson’s novel high-resolution imaging technology, called Multi-Beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), provides a second generation breakthrough in imaging performance offering twice the resolution of first generation OCT systems. This differentiating technological edge makes Michelson Diagnostics the clear leader in OCT. I am honoured to help Michelson establish their presence here in the largest medical imaging market in the world." His contact details are Kevin.Oakley@md-ltd.co.uk and +1 (315) 783-3803.
