This information was released for public disclosure on June 23, 2014 at 3.00 pm CET.

CellaVision, the world leading company in digital microscopy used in hematology, has acquired a technology platform which will be the foundation of a future development project. This new technology has the potential to develop into an affordable solution for the smaller hospital laboratories.

The acquisition was made from a U.S. high technology company, Clear Lake Medical Foundation, headed by Glenn Spaulding, M.D., which has expertise in digital microscopy. The purchase price payable in installments upon achievement of certain goals will amount to approximately $ 1 million.

"We are excited to acquire this break-through technology that should make it possible to expand our product portfolio, including new products for smaller laboratories presently outside our current target market. Implementation of the new platform will be done in close collaboration with Clear Lake Medical Foundation and begin promptly. We expect, however, that it will take a few years before the first product reaches the market," says Yvonne Mårtensson, CEO of CellaVision.
