    CEO's comment
    "The first quarter indicates a continued strong sales growth, and we are still dedicated to our aim of furthering growth and profit in 2009," says Yvonne Mårtensson, CEO of CellaVision. "As yet, the financial crisis has not translated into a loss of orders; however, the purchasing processes tend to take longer for hospital customers. North America accounted for the majority of sales during this quarter, and Dave Autry has now been appointed President of our North American operations."
    "It is also satisfying to report that our Japanese subsidiary received its first order in April from the hospital laboratory in Tokyo that has been evaluating the product for some time. The laboratory at Tokyo Medical Center is a good reference to have in our future penetration of the important Japanese market."
    "Our growth is also owing to technological development. The development of a new hardware platform has reached an intense phase of prototype assembling and testing. This has resulted in increased costs, which in turn has an effect on results despite the fact the SEK 4.8 million was capitalized as expenditure for development. The main parts of these costs are now taken. A new product based on the new hardware platform will be launched in the second half of this year."
