ata and invaluable insight into the potential broad utility of this important new diagnostic technology."

In a presentation at the International Academy for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 14th World Conference on Lung Cancer in July 2011, VisionGate showed how LuCED harnesses the power of 3D imaging to accurately detect cancer cells in sputum samples from individuals at high-risk of lung cancer, without the use of x-rays.  LuCED works with the company's automated Cell-CT platform to produce detailed 3D images of the cells contained in sputum samples, which the system automatically analyzes to identify key features, or biosignatures, associated with potential malignancy.  The analysis yields a score that indicates whether or not cancer cells are present in the sample.  The Cell-CT system produces strikingly clear and comprehensive 3D images of the cells, enabling extremely accurate classifications.  

Separately, VisionGate reported that it has closed the first $1.96 million tranche of a projected $3 million equity financing.  The financing included both existing and new investors.

Alan Nelson, PhD, chairman and CEO of VisionGate, commented, "We view the enthusiastic response to our current financing round as a testament to the broad potential of our innovative 3D cell imaging technology.  These funds will enable us to continue to rapidly advance the clinical and regulatory development of LuCED and our 3D cell imaging platform."
