CellaVision's CEO comments: Continuing strong demand enables us to develop and invest for the future
"The strong drivers for increased effectiveness in our markets remain, and demand for our products continues to increase. Sales in the first six months of the year rose by 26 per cent and accordingly total sales were just over SEK 72 million, compared with SEK 58 million in the same period last year.

Our sales successes in all markets are continuing, parallel sales channels are showing a positive trend in the US, demand for our analyzer for mid-size laboratories, CellaVision DM1200, is increasing in the European market and interest in our products continues to grow in China, Hong Kong and South-East Asia.

Continuing strong demand enables us to develop and invest for the future. Our new product idea, which will give collaborating laboratories and hospital groups the possibility of using CellaVision's technology even in small laboratories, was evaluated by customers during the spring with positive results. We plan to present a final product before the end of the year.

In July our contract manufacturer will move production to another site. The situation will temporarily entail longer delivery times to customers but will most likely not mean lost orders. We expect that production will be up and running in September and thereafter improve our ability to meet expected growth. Achieving a stable rate of output, adapted to higher sales targets, is part of our long-term growth strategy."
