Cape Cod based manufacturer wins Research & Development award

Our small Cape Cod based business,  PID Analyzers, LLC, was awarded a prestigious Research and Development (R and D) 100 Award for the development of our Model 33 arsenic in water  and food analyzer in the laboratory equipment category at the 2013 RandD 100 awards ceremony Thursday evening November 7, 2013 in Orlando, FL.  The "R and D 100 Awards recognize the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year" according to the press release issued by Research and Development  Magazine. In addition to our business receiving this honor, 
 my father and business partner, Jack Driscoll,
as the developer of the winning product, received  special recognition at the awards ceremony. 

Here is a short video of Jack and I on stage receiving the award.

Here is a full list of the 2013winners. Note that this is a major accomplishment to win an R and D 100 award and that our small, privately-held Cape Cod business competed against publicly traded companies as well as National Laboratories; for instance, Oak Ridge National Laboratories was celebrating their six awards which brings their total up to 179 according to their press release. These are a few of the *household names* on the winners list: General Motors, Dow Chemical and Olympus. We had the opportunity to participate in the RandD100 Awards Industry  Roundtable on the morning of the awards ceremony and banquet with executives from The Dow Chemical Company, Toyota Research and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

  2. The manufacture of chemicals is regulated at the federal level by the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA). The government has the authority to prevent unreasonable risks of injury to the environment. However, the government must not exercise this authority in a manner that places unreasonable economic barriers to technological innovation
