SAN FRANCISCO, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DotLab announced today that it has been named by FierceMedTech as one of 2019's class of Fierce 15, designating it as one of the most promising private medtech companies in the industry.
DotLab combined its novel biomarkers with machine learning to pioneer the development of its non-invasive, accurate diagnostic test for endometriosis. The disease is estimated to impact 10% of women worldwide and over 50% of women with infertility. Many women remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, and those who do eventually receive a diagnosis endure an average delay to diagnosis of ten years. "At DotLab, we aspire to positively impact the lives of the hundreds of millions of women with this devastating disease. Endometriosis has astounding prevalence but no non-invasive test to confirm active disease," said DotLab CEO Heather Bowerman.
The Fierce 15 celebrates the spirit of being "fierce"—championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. This is FierceMedTech's 8th annual Fierce 15 selection, and DotLab is the only women's health company recognized.
