Ron Andrews, CEO of Clarient, a GE Healthcare company, told IVD Technology that his message to potential applicants is three-pronged: 1. GE will be a desirable partner for them in their quest to get funding and to promote and take some of their discoveries to the next level; 2. GE, through Healthymagination, is not looking to own applicant companies, it is looking to invest in those companies to propogate their discoveries and hopefully, ultimately bring an end to breast cancer; 3. Clarient, a GE company, can help commercialize their discoveries and provide a worldwide global channel to take their products to market.
