CLEVELAND, March 27, 2014 – Jake Orville, CEO of Cleveland HeartLab, accepted today the Crystal Award for Excellence from Ohio’s Edison Technology Centers. The presentation was made by its Edison Centers Director Council during a luncheon held at the Ohio statehouse and attended by state legislators and executives from other innovative companies.
The six Edison Technology Centers located in Ohio provide a variety of product and process innovation and commercialization services to both established and early-stage technology-based businesses. Each year the Edison Centers Directors Council recognizes companies that are succeeding at bringing innovative products to market.
Winners of the Crystal Award for Excellence qualify for recognition by having collaborated with one or more of the Edison Technology Centers located in Ohio. Cleveland HeartLab was nominated by BioOhio, an Edison Technology Center based in Columbus that is focused on building and accelerating bioscience industry, research, and education in Ohio.
“This award recognizes our commitment to innovation,” said Orville. “It was made possible by our company’s shared dedication and commitment to bring to market scientifically proven testing that answers unmet, clinical needs in cardiovascular disease prevention.”
Cleveland HeartLab is a leading provider of cardiovascular testing to thousands of the best clinicians in the United States who are focused on wellness and prevention. It offers proprietary inflammation testing and other traditional testing such as cholesterol in order to add risk insights with the goal of identifying those who might otherwise go undetected.
