3M Honored for Its Technology Innovations at 2017 Edison Awards
In 1902, Thomas Edison was still an avid inventor. His ingenuity and scientific pursuits resulted in technologies that would impact the everyday living for millions of people. Also in 1902 was the inception of 3M, which ever since has applied science to life with Edison’s same determination as a way to improve the daily lives of its consumers. 3M today announced that two of its most innovative and advanced technologies have been selected to receive a 2017 Edison Award — a global recognition honoring innovators that create a positive impact in the world. The 3M Molecular Detection Assay 2 from 3M Food Safety received a Gold and 3M Mobile True Definition Scanner from 3M Oral Care received a Bronze Edison Award in the Diagnostic Tools category.
Category finalists were judged by a panel of more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medicine. Winners were chosen for their excellence in concept, value, delivery and impact.
