This payment is part of a programme that comes under Kromek’s mutually exclusive development contract, worth up to $5.3 million, with the OEM for developing and supplying multispectral (colour) detectors for producing high resolution colour X-Ray images by CT scanners.
The decision to continue the programme for the second year was based on sustained progress towards meeting the aims of the development programme.

“With the success of our collaboration, our relationship with this key OEM partner continues to develop and grow stronger.
“This latest step is a clear endorsement of our technology and our long-term strategy to position Kromek’s subcomponents at the heart of major global OEMs’ medical imaging systems to improve diagnostic capabilities, resulting in better clinical outcomes.”
