August 23, 2011– Claron Technology, the Toronto-based medical imaging software innovator, has received International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification in three categories for its quality management system. From its recently introduced Nil zero-footprint Web-based digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) viewer to its ClaroNav surgical-guidance-by-video platform and versatile Withinsight Framework (WIF) advanced visualization software framework, Claron’s advanced technology has established the company as an industry innovator since its inception in 2001.
Claron was awarded ISO 13485: 2003 certification based on its ability to demonstrate consistent compliance with customer and regulatory requirements applicable to its medical devices and related services. Claron also met specialized ISO 13485 (CMDCAS) certification requirements for the sale of its medical devices in Canada and successfully showed compliance with ISO 14971:2007 by demonstrating an effective process for identifying, evaluating and controlling any potential risks associated with product use throughout its lifecycle.
Claudio Gatti, Claron co-founder and co-CEO, noted that Claron has helped bring to market key innovations in medical image processing, distribution and related technologies. “As a relatively small and specialized vendor, Claron has the ability to partner with clients to develop solutions that address genuine market demand,” he said, adding that now clients around the globe can be even more assured of the strength of that partnership.
“Claron’s strict adherence to ISO standards demonstrates its commitment to delivering the highest quality technology to the medical imaging market around the world. Importantly, our quality processes were carefully designed to ensure we will be able to maintain our rapid pace of innovation, while ensuring product integrity and reliability,” said Doron Dekel, Claron co-founder and co-CEO.
