Date:12/21/2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the surface functionalization technologies market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Cambridge, Mass.-based Semprus BioSciences with the 2010 Enabling Technology of the Year Award for Surface Functionalization Technologies.

"A majority of hospital-acquired infections contracted each year originate with the colonization of bacteria on implantable medical devices, which provide a good surface for bacterial growth," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Prasanna Vadhana.
