Viscira, a leading provider of interactive and new-media communication and technology solutions for the life sciences industry, was recently ranked #51 by the San Francisco Business Times on its annual list of the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies. The list ranks privately owned Bay Area-based companies by revenue growth from 2010 to 2012.

The company also saw demand for its distinctive sales and educational applications for the iPad and other mobile devices grow significantly over the period.

Viscira’s President & CEO, Dave Gulezian, was pleased. “This is another great recognition for the talented team we have at Viscira,” he said. “Considering the vast number of technology start-ups and small, private companies based here in the Bay Area, we appreciate being recognized as one of the fastest growing.”
