Vancouver, B.C. and Boston, MA, June 9, 2016 – Imagin Medical (CSE: IME) (OTC PINK: IMEXF) (Frankfurt/Stuttgart Stock Exchanges: DPD2) (the “Company”) announced today that it has signed a Collaborative Research Agreement with the University of Rochester Laboratory of Laser Energetics (LLE) and the U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.) that will facilitate the development of the i/Blue Imagining System.
Dr. Stavros Demos, the product’s inventor, recently joined the LLE which was established in 1970 and has become an internationally known resource for research and education in science and technology. A pioneer in university/industry collaborations, LLE employs over 300 engineers and scientists with a recognized expertise in laser, optics and the interaction of light with matter.
Dr. Demos will continue to provide support to Imagin’s development team. As previously announced, the Company’s goal at LLE is to build the initial prototype developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and continue to refine the product’s design, requalifying the system’s optical model, components and advanced light sensors. These next generation products will be used for clinical trials, regulatory submission and eventual commercial distribution.
Additionally, Imagin Medical has signed a Loan Agreement with the D.O.E. that has granted Imagin permission to move the original prototype from LLNL to LLE. This prototype is now in the hands of the development team at the University of Rochester.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have these agreements in place and proceed with LLE,” said Jim Hutchens, Imagin’s President and CEO. “We are now full steam ahead with the development of the i/Blue Imaging System and, with LLE’s support, will be in position to progress through clinical trials, regulatory submission and eventual commercial distribution.”
