“I am very happy about this great nomination. The fact that we have come this far is not only an award for our innovative products for AI-assisted cancer diagnosis, but primarily for our competent and creative team. I would like to thank everyone for their committed work, especially in these challenging times, ”said founder and managing director Felix Faber in Hamburg.

Work is currently underway to expand the product portfolio to include more types of cancer.
