Fierce15 officially opened to private diagnostics companies

This just in: Thanks to reader feedback and popular demand, we're officially expanding the nomination field for our first-ever FierceMedicalDevices Fierce15 list to also include privately-run diagnostics companies (they'll be considered along with medical device firms).

With that in mind, we're reopening the nomination process so interested diagnostics companies can submit their nominations in time. Submit your candidates to this link by Aug. 20.

Over the next 6 weeks or so, we'll conduct our selection. On Oct. 2, we will tell you who made the cut, both through a special report running on FierceMedicalDevices and as part of the AdvaMed 2012 convention in Boston. Stay tuned. -- Mark Hollmer (email | Twitter) and Damian Garde (email | Twitter)
