Celsee Diagnostics, an innovator of cutting-edge liquid-biopsy products, announced today that the company has been selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America winner.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada.

“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early-stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Celsee Diagnostics should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, intellectual property, and business model. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.

“It is an honor to be selected as a member of this elite Red Herring list, and another validation of our business plan to develop and commercialize cutting-edge microfluidic technology to monitor cancer progression and therapeutic response,” stated Celsee Diagnostics’ President and CEO, Kalyan Handique, Ph.D.
