First collaboration phase with Belgian diagnostics company finalized
AcouSort has finalized the first phase of the previously announced collaboration project with a Belgian diagnostics company that develops innovative products for point-of-care testing. AcouSort has over the past months developed and now delivered the test platform based on AcouSort's technology to the Belgian company. The collaboration continues with further evaluations of the platform at the company’s site. The collaboration has initially generated revenues of 29,500 Euro.
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. AcouSort has over the last months successfully developed a test platform that combines AcouSort’s core technology with the Belgian company’s analysis technology. With the test platform ready, the Belgian company will be able to take the next step and evaluate if AcouSort's technology for integrated blood separation will improve their system's measurement performance.
“We are very much looking forward to continue the next phase of our collaboration where the test platform will be used to evaluate possible integration of our technology into the company’s innovative diagnostic instrument for point-of-care testing. We highly value these types of collaborations as they pave the way toward new OEM agreements. If the outcome of the evaluation is positive, we have good hopes that this may result in a long-term OEM collaboration,” says AcouSort’s CEO Torsten Freltoft.
