poLight ASA - purchase order received related to Mini2p application
Horten, 25 September poLight ASA (OSE: PLT) today announced that the company has recently received a purchase order for stacked TLenses from a commercial company planning to supply Mini2p solution to Research Labs worth in excess of NOK 1.000.000. Mini2P is an open-source miniature 2-photon microscope brain explorer for fast high-resolution calcium imaging in freely-moving mice developed by Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at NTNU.
"TLens has been instrumental to achieve the performance of Mini2p system. The speed and temperature stability of TLens is much better than any other tuneable lens we have tested, implying we can achieve results we never have been able to do before. This is very important for our research to understand the mechanism of information coding in the brain. We have seen a lot of interest in our work from many other research groups around the world. TLens will continue to be important for our future solutions", says Dr. Weijian Zong
"After the Kavli Institute first started using TLens in Mini2P many research groups around the world are doing the same. Now we see commercial players preparing to supply such solutions. We have mainly seen this activity as important brand building for us, but in sum this activity has so far represented an accumulated value of approximately 5.5 million NOK, and hence starting to be an important financial contributor. ", said Dr. Øyvind Isaksen, CEO of poLight ASA.
The latest purchase order is expected to be delivered in Q4/2023.
