PITTSBURGH, PA, USA – 12 Oct 2007 – Industrial Scientific Corporation, a global leader in gas detection and monitoring instruments, systems and related services, was named the Advanced Manufacturing Category Leader at the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Tech 50 Awards Program.

The Program annually recognizes the region’s leading technology-oriented companies in five categories for achievements in growth and innovation.
