CEO COMMENTARY

Profitability reflects how efficient a company can produce and deliver
products to its customers. Seen from this perspective the Company has
until now only engaged in product development. We have indeed sold
close to 100 instruments, but from the greater perspective this is to
be regarded as pilot sales to generate customer feedback prior to
finalizing the product.

Series production of HoloMonitor M4.5

Market acceptance

The Company's instruments are today in operation in 50 cell
laboratories, which has resulted in over 40 scientific publications.
The Company's main product, HoloMonitor® M4.5, is now in series
production. Components are manufactured and kept in stock to provide
a steady flow of products from production to customers. Additionally,
series production significantly lowers manufacturing cost, which is
reflected by the rising gross margin.

Fund raising

Overall, we have now received the market confirmation which shows that
our products are ready for an aggressive marketing effort. We
therefore intend to raise funds of 40 MSEK to expand the market
organization, but also to transfer an increasing number of products
into series production to build the efficient flow of products which
leads to profitability.

To on our own create the global distribution capacity needed to
establish our products as standard equipment in cell laboratories is
very time consuming and resource demanding. Our marketing efforts
therefore target a limited number of key markets, and through an
accelerating penetration of these markets attract leading industry
players with global distribution capacity. The capital injection is
crucial for an expansion of the market and will give us financial
strength to in a subsequent stage and with a clear intension
successfully divest the business, to a value greatly exceeding the
value we see today.

sales increased by 16 % to 2 494 (2 153) TSEK.

Most customers now order HoloMonitor M4.5 with a motorized stage,
which has led to some initial delays of planned shipments. The
motorized stage, however, increases customer price with close to 70
%. Future revenues per sold instrument are thereof expected to
increase significantly. In total, planned shipments amounted to 745
TSEK by the end of the period.

ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES

From the fiscal year May 1, 2014 - April 30, 2015, the accounts are
prepared in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act and the general
advice of the Accounting Board BFNAR 2012:1 (K3). The application of
the new regulations has not implicated any requirement to restate the
comparative periods. BFNAR 2007:1 is applied in the preparation of
interim reports.

NEW REPORTING FORMAT

From the fiscal year May 1, 2015 - April 30, 2016, the income
statement is structured according to the functional format. This

more transparent picture of the Company's operating result
development. Aside from this, the same accounting principles have
been applied as in the latest annual report.

REVIEW

This interim report has not been subject to review by the auditors of
the Company.
