In November, President Bush named in vitro diagnostics manufacturer Gen-Probe Inc. (San Diego) as one of seven National Medal of Technology laureates for 2004. The company was recognized for the development and commercialization of its Procleix line of nucleic acid-based blood-screening tests.

The National Medal of Technology is the United States' highest honor for technological achievements. It recognizes entities that, in the words of the White House announcement, "embody the spirit of American innovation and that have advanced the nation's global competitiveness."
