AcouSort enters collaboration agreement with a Belgian diagnostics company
AcouSort has entered a partnership with a Belgian diagnostics company that develops innovative products for point-of-care testing. Together, the companies will develop a test platform based on AcouSort's technology to be used in the Belgian company's product development. The collaboration will initially generate revenues of 29,500 Euro in Q1-2021.
The Belgium-based company is developing a platform for point-of-care diagnostics based on whole blood, initially focusing on analysis of blood cells. In the long term, there are plans to develop the system to be able to analyze other fractions of blood samples. With the jointly developed test platform, the Belgian company will evaluate if AcouSort's technology for integrated blood separation can improve their system's measurement performance.
“We are very much looking forward to starting this exciting collaboration where our core technology will be evaluated for integration into an innovative diagnostic instrument for point-of-care testing. As previously mentioned, these types of collaborations are very important enablers for concluding OEM agreements in the long run. If the outcome is positive, we have good hopes that this may lead to a more long-term OEM collaboration,” says AcouSort’s CEO Torsten Freltoft.
