Sales were close to SEK 58 million, which is an increase of 35 % compared to the same period last year. In the second quarter we regained the drop in sales and results in the first quarter, mostly because the Sysmex sales of the CellaVision DM1200 in Europe are gaining momentum. Markets outside Europe and North America comprise 10%, indicating that we are now beginning to see results from our efforts in countries such as Japan and China." says Yvonne Mårtensson, CEO of CellaVision. "We have now distribution agreements with Sysmex and Beckman Coulter in place and look forward to rewarding collaborations ahead. We are confident in our new distribution strategy, which allows us to further penetrate several of our most important markets such as the US and Japan. With both strong sales channels and a new analyzer in our product line, we are increasing our chances for a continuing successful strategic expansion and growth in 2010." "CellaVision was listed on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm at the end of May, an important event in the history of our company. The listing gives us more freedom in our continued expansion and invites institutions to invest in CellaVision." For more information please contact: Yvonne Mårtensson, CEO.
