Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

SpectraScience Inc is a US based company focused on developing the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System (WavSTAT). The WavSTAT employs a risk technology that optically illuminates tissue in real-time to distinguish between normal and pre-cancerous or cancerous tissue. The firm has developed a technology platform to determine if the tissue is normal, pre-cancerous or cancerous, without the need for a physical biopsy. The WavSTAT operates by using cool, safe UV laser light to optically illuminate and analyze tissue, enabling the physician to make a diagnosis during endoscopy when screening for cancer and, if warranted, to begin treatment during the same procedure. The group sells its product in the United States and Europe, of which majority of the sales revenue is derived from the United States.
