CellaVision acquires exclusive rights to novel microscopy technology

2021-04-06 - English

CellaVision announces that the company has signed an agreement to acquire the exclusive rights to a patent portfolio on Fourier Ptychographic Microscopy, a novel microscopy technology from Clearbridge BioPhotonics. The acquisition gives CellaVision access and control of an interesting future technology. The acquisition has a cash purchase price of SEK 28,7 million.

The technology has been developed at California Institute of Technology and is a method for creating high-resolution images with low-magnification optics. This enables images of large areas to be acquired at high resolution with higher speed than using conventional digital microscopy.

CellaVision believes that the Fourier Ptychography Microscopy technology has potential to be used to develop future automated microscopes, with applications in both hematology and adjacent areas.

The acquisition is seen as a long-term investment aiming to strengthen CellaVision's innovation opportunities and will have no material impact on sales or EBITDA in the near-term future. The acquired patent rights provide protection in CellaVision's key geographies for more than 12 years.
