Orpington, UK, July 29th, 2009: Jon Holmes, CEO of Michelson Diagnostics Limited (MDL), the UK manufacturer of Multi-Beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scanners, was recently invited by the UK’s Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to a reception for Britain’s entrepreneurs at No.10 Downing Street.

    We are very proud that Jon Holmes’ and Michelson Diagnostics’ achievements have been recognised in this way, and we are extremely pleased that the potential of OCT imaging to transform healthcare has been recognised at the highest levels of UK government.

    The reception, held on 22nd June 2009, was described by the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) as being held to “honour Britain’s business heroes” and was to “recognise the contribution to business...of a selection of Britain’s most innovative entrepreneurs”.

    At the event, Jon Holmes met with Lord Drayson, Minister for Science and Innovation, and with Lord Davies, Minister for Trade and Investment, and discussed with them the potential of Michelson Diagnostics’ innovative Multi-Beam OCT products and strategies for accelerating NHS adoption of new, advanced technologies such as OCT.

    Prime Minister Gordon Brown gave a speech in which he said "I want to thank each of you individually for making the big decision to start a business, for taking the risk to do so, for making all the effort that has made your business a success. It shows the ambition and the aspiration to do something not just for yourself but for people whom you employ, and in that way to make our country a stronger and better place.”

    Co-host Business Secretary Lord Mandelson added: "Britain’s entrepreneurs have the skills, resources and knowledge base to lead us out of the downturn - the Government's job is to do everything it can to support growing businesses and to remove barriers to success.”
